Bamboo is a flexible and excellently string plant, but for most people that do not understand how bamboos are used for manufacturing some of the most convenient pillows in the market, this is for you. Neither a pillow created out of hard layers of bamboo nor a standard pillow that is stuffed with bamboo pieces, bamboo pillows are specially treated until they are exceptionally flexible threads and later woven into the most hypoallergenic and sustainable textiles in the world.
Characteristics of Bamboo Fibre and Memory Foam:
Bamboo fiber is naturally hypoallergenic and anti-bacterial, UV protective, biodegradable and green, cool and breathable, soft, flexible, strong and it has a deluxe shiny appearance.
Fabrics that are manufactured out of bamboo fiber are extremely breathable during hot weather conditions. Bamboo is naturally cool when touched. The bamboo fiber’s cross-section is filled with different micro-holes and micro-gaps leading to much ventilation and moisture absorption. During the cold weather, it is very warm because of similar microstructures as the warm air is trapped next to the skin.
Bamboo is naturally anti-static, antifungal, and antibacterial. Bamboo has a unique bacteriostatic and anti-bacteria bioagent names “Bamboo Kun” that bonds tightly with the molecules of bamboo cellulose during the normal process of the fiber growth of the bamboo. This feature is also retained in the fabrics of the bamboo. Several studies and tests have been conducted with results that show over 70% death rate right after bacteria were incubated on the bamboo fiber fabric. Furthermore, tests were carried out by the Japanese Inspection Association and the results show that even after as much as fifty washes, the bamboo fabrics still retained their properties. This makes the bamboo odor free, germ-free and healthier.
The yield of the bamboo is 10 times that of cotton, without incorporating the use of pesticides or fertilizers. In addition, organic cotton makes use of a large amount of cotton and a large amount of water for its growth, bamboo, on the other hand, grows without the use of any form of irrigation, and it is often found on hill slopes where no other plant can be grown.
