Our bamboo quilts are produced by the world's only patented manufacturer of bamboo viscose fibre and they are fully certified and authenticated by the fibre manufacturer as being 100% pure bamboo. Inner: 100% bamboo fibre; Outer: 100% bamboo fabric
The 100% Bamboo Fibre Quilt is:
Bamboo has natural and inherent anti-bacterial and anti-microbial properties, due to a naturally occurring agent known as "bamboo kun". This prevents bacteria from cultivating on the fibre. It has been tested by inoculating the bamboo fibre with bacteria. After 24 hours it was found to have 70% less bacteria present. Cotton tested in a similar manner had 30% more! Bamboo fabric is now being used for surgical dressings.
Bacteria are the cause of some odours. Bamboo destroys bacteria, therefore giving it natural deodorant properties. This makes it ideal for socks and underwear. The anti-bacterial properties have been validated by the Japanese Textile Inspection Association. Even after 50 washes, bamboo fabric still possesses excellent anti-bacterial properties. The natural antibacterial property differs from chemical anti-microbial additives in that, the latter often causes skin allergies when applied to fabrics.
Bamboo is resistant to dust mite and has natural mould inhibiting properties, therefore it is very suitable for people with asthma and other allergies.
The bamboo fibre is very fine, much finer than the human hair, and is therefore extremely soft. The fibre is produced strictly in accordance with ISO-9000 and ISO-14000 specifications. Bamboo is 3-4 times more absorbent than cotton. It wicks away moisture to keep you cool in summer and warm in winter.
OekoTex, the world authority in Switzerland for testing textiles, have accredited this quilt as being completely free from harmful substances. It is produced by the world's only patented manufacturer of bamboo fibre, and has been certified and authenticated by the fibre manufacturer as being genuine 100% pure bamboo.
