Cotton is one of the most destructive crops to grow in the world.

Twenty five percent of the total pesticide used is applied to cotton. In addition the fields are burned after harvest, leaving raw fields until the cycle starts over in the spring. Bamboo is harvested incrementally, so the bamboo forest remains to support wildlife and hold the soil. Plus, no herbicide, pesticide or fertilizer is used. The bamboo is organic and the fabric is Oeko-Tex 100 certified. Our customers can sleep well, knowing the environment wasn’t destroyed to produce their bedding.

 

Currently most high quality bamboo sheets are priced similarly to high thread count Egyptian cotton and are much less expensive than silk. Due to the textile differences, bamboo, at a 250 thread count (TC), is softer and silkier than a 1000 TC Egyptian cotton. Bamboo sheets while less expensive than silk, have a similar sensuality. Plus bamboo is resistant to dust mites, is hypoallergenic, antibacterial and antifungal.

 

So bamboo is the better choice in luxurious sensual linens and clothing.
