Enhance your wardrobe with ethical, sustainable, and eco-friendly clothing

Unfortunately, some of you may have been born with hyper-sensitive skin and discover that garments made of synthetic materials cause irritation to your skin. Revamping your wardrobe with all-natural garments like silk, pure cotton, linen and bamboo fabrics will surely make a positive result in your everyday living.

Why should you opt for natural fabrics?

  • It has high absorption quality and a unique moisture wicking ability which permits ventilation through the garment to dry the dampness. Synthetic fabrics, on the other hand, are water resistant and can’t wick moisture since it has zero water absorption.
  • Natural fabrics such as Bamboo, Linen, Silk, and Cotton are naturally hypoallergenic and have unique anti-bacterial properties.
  • Natural fabrics are a sustainable choice. These materials are made from trees, plants or animals that can be regrown and replaced over time. Natural fabrics are biodegradable and eco-friendly. They have the ability to decompose once they have reached the end of their life or can be readily reused and recycled.

                                                 

Bamboo:

Bamboo is anti-fungal and odour resistant since it has anti-microbial bio agent known as “bamboo kun.” This natural anti-bacterial agent is preserved during production. Using this kind of fabric is also advisable both for babies and adults who have highly sensitive skin. Synthetic fabrics such as nylon, polyester, and rayon are man-made fabrics which can easily irritate sensitive skin or has the potential to worsen other forms of allergy.

Bamboo is known to be the fastest-growing grass. It is grown organically and thrives without needing any pesticides or fertilizers. In most cases, growing of bamboo can be considered sustainable.

Linen:

Linen fabric is made from the cellulose fibers of the flax plant. It has high absorption quality, and is also a good conductor of the heat.  Linen resists stains and dirt, withstands hot temperatures and tends to get softer even after 20 years of use. Linen also contains natural antibacterial and germ-killing properties that stops bacterial growth with results in prevention of fungal diseases, and damaged skin infections.

By far, the best clothing fabric for women to ensure comfort in warm weather and hot climates is made from 100% Linen. This natural fabric helps to absorb sweat and allows the skin to breathe. Linen clothing is also ideal for women with sensitive skin and those who suffer from hot flushes.

The antibacterial property of bamboo

Japanese scientists have discovered the unique anti-bacterial agent of bamboo known as “bamboo kun”. This substance, is proven to give it the antibacterial property which remains even after more than 50 washes. Other similar studies conducted in China and India have also provided further support for the previous research. These studies have investigated the antibacterial nature of bamboo-rayon fabric against even extreme levels of bacteria such as Escherichia coli and Staphylococcus aureus. Both studies claim that the bamboo fabric show excellent antibacterial activities against both gram-negative and gram-positive bacteria.

Bamboo vs. Cotton

As our world gets greener, many people have embraced eco-friendly products. Thus, bamboo has gained its popularity among these folks.  Bamboo being an easily renewable resource might be its major advantage.  It only requires a little amount of water to grow and can be grown with or without pesticides or herbicides, while cotton often requires pesticides in large amount in order to grow.

Bamboo is often described as feeling like cashmere because of its softness.  Since bamboo fiber itself is naturally smooth without needing any chemical treatment, there will be no sharp spurs to irritate the skin.  This only means that bamboo fabric can be worn by those who are suffering from allergies without any problem. The softness and the durability of the bamboo fabric can be described to be getting even softer with each washing. The unique antibacterial quality which can be found naturally in the fiber makes it naturally antibacterial, and odor resistant. However, this property cannot be found with cotton.

During the ancient times, bamboo has been very useful to man. Aside from the fact that it’s a plant, it can also be used and turned into different things using its parts. It can turn into furniture pieces, even into a wooden set of speakers, and now bamboo plant is also making a mark in the fashion industry! Bamboo clothing is one of the two collections that Down to Erath Fashion is bringing you. We opt for bamboo to include in our collections because of the following facts:

Bamboo’s Eco friendliness is one of the factors why we consider it in our clothing line. It is a conservational wonder-plant because it doesn’t require the use of chemicals, and it needs only a little amount of water to grow. Thus, it absorbs more carbon dioxide compared with cotton and releases more oxygen which make the quality of air in the environment cleaner. Now, imagine a single cotton shirt consuming up to over 2,000 liters of water to grow. It’ll make you choose bamboo anyway!

Sustainability is another reason. Given the fact that it grows faster, it can refill itself within only a year compared with cotton which highly demands to be replanted every harvest, plus the watering to achieve the ideal growth. So, bamboo is way more practical to use!

Softness and pleasantness. It is extremely soft when converted into clothing which gives you a pleasant feeling, especially when touching it. Who wouldn’t want to be cloaked with comfort, right?

Absorbency. According to some studies, bamboo has better moisture absorbency properties compared with cotton and polyester.

And lastly, UV Protection. It has the power to protect you from the sun’s heat in comfort.

Given these facts/benefits of using bamboo in clothing, would you still opt for those that are not environment-friendly? Of course you can wear what you want, but don’t you think it’s more comforting to wear earth-friendly clothing without compromising the style?
