BAMBOOZLED ABOUT BAMBOO?

It's no secret that we love bamboo at Zipster.
We wholeheartedly believe that it's the best fabric for your little one and the environment that they live in.

About bamboo

We choose bamboo because it's got so many amazing qualities that makes it the perfect choice for your little one.

Not only is it sustainable, but it's the softest fabric around, and its natural fibres mean it helps you and your baby get a better night sleep.

Read on to find out how we make bamboo into Zipsters, and why it is the perfect fabric for you and your little one.

why is bamboo the perfect baby clothing fabric?

There are a lot of reasons to list, but here are a few of the key reasons we believe bamboo is the perfect fabric for your little one:

1. It's incredibly soft
The buttery texture of bamboo means your little one stays comfortable and is often recommended for children with sensitive skin or exzma.

2. It's thermoregulatory
Because bamboo is a natural fibre (think cashmere/wool), it helps regulate the temperature of your baby. This is particularly important at bed time, when your baby's natural temperature fluctuates.

3. It's breathable
Perfect for both hot and cold weathers, bamboo helps your baby's skin to breath.

4. It's sustainable
Read our sustainability section below to find out why bamboo has the least damaging effect on our environment.

How sustainable is bamboo?

Bamboo is commonly known to be a fan favourite amongst eco-friendly families, but why is it so sustainable?

1. Bamboo requires less water and pesticides in production

Compared to cotton and other traditional materials, bamboo required a whole lot less to be produced into clothing.

2. Bamboo is the fastest growing plant in the world

Bamboo can grow to full size in just 3-4 months, compared to standard trees which can take 30+ years to grow. This makes it a super sustainable alternative due to its naturally renewing properties.

3. Bamboo grows upwards

Because bamboo shoots upwards, it requires significiantly less space than other materials to grow and harvest.
