Bamboosa manufactures all of their products in a sewing plant in South Carolina. Their employees are third generation sewing machine operators who take great pride in the art of sewing. Bamboosa is made from bamboo which needs to be blended with other fibers in order to be stable. Bamboosa manufactures their own fabrics and they have several different blends: 70% bamboo viscose/30% organic cotton 67% Viscose from Organic Bamboo/ 28% Organic Cotton/ 5% Lycra94% Viscose from Organic Bamboo, 6% Lycra. The products machine wash, using mild soap, cold or warm water and tumble dry. Bamboosa does not recommend using bleach. 80% of the environmental impact of clothing results post-purchase. The majority of the focus of sustainability should be how we wash our clothes, not just how they were made.
Bamboosa is good for the planet. Bamboo is easier to dye than most natural fabrics meaning less chemical processing at the dyeing stage than cotton or synthetics. They do not use ANY chlorine for bleaching or pre-bleaching nor do they use any dye-fixing agents which contain some unattractive compounds – on any products. No, the colors do not fade – they remain bright and rich through many washings. We LOVE the colors – they are fresh and infant-centric. Note: While the bamboo fiber is sourced direct from China much is done to protect the natural habitat of the Panda bear.
Bamboosa’s products are within reach of most parents’ budget. Check out the prices:
