Bamboo Blend Seamless

cylk combines innovative seamless technology with eco-chic bamboo, providing high end fashion with environmental awareness.
cylk Bamboo Seamless blended garments are designed to create a modern and shapely silhouette, working as simple undergarments for layering or as timeless pieces for elegant outerwear.
Bamboo clothing is an excellent choice for the eco-conscious consumer having multiple benefits, which combine to offer a new level of luxury and comfort, in a sustainable and ethical way.

A naturally smooth fibre, bamboo fabric is softer than cotton and has a similar texture and hand-feel to silk.  A highly breathable yarn with effective moisture absorption
and ventilation qualities, bamboo contains insulating properties which will keep the wearer cooler in summer and warmer in winter. Bamboo possesses natural deodorizing properties, which are 30% more effective than cotton.  Manufactured through a mechanical procedure (similar to that used to process flax or hemp), bamboo is able to retain its natural and unique anti-bacterial and bio-agent properties, even after multiple garment washes.

Bamboo has also many sustainable advantages when compared to cotton as a raw textile.  The fastest growing woody plant in the world, bamboo can reach up to 35 meters tall.  This plant grows exceptionally quickly in favorable and diverse climate conditions without the use of pesticides, fertilizers or continuous replanting.  Very little bamboo is irrigated and water use efficiency is twice that of other trees.  Bamboo minimizes CO2 and generates up to 35% more oxygen than equivalent stands of trees. Bamboo can be used as food, fibre and shelter and due to its ease of growth and extraordinary growth rate it is a cheap, sustainable and efficient crop.
