Fabrics are part of our revolution: Why Mark Baigent Loves Bamboo

Picture this: a garment made from the most refined bamboo fabric to design beautiful curves and stunning silhouettes. It's not just fashion; it's a statement. To be stylish and responsible at the same time.

With its eco-friendly allure, bamboo is stealing the spotlight as a sustainable alternative to traditional fabrics. Its fast-paced growth and few detrimental effects on the environment make it the most favourable choice for environmentally friendly architects. Mark Baigent has been doing this development in fashion, creating some pieces crafted entirely from 100% bamboo fibers. Their designs demonstrated bamboo’s flexibility, providing an overview of his revolutionary approach towards the fashion industry.

Is Bamboo Sustainable?

The bamboo fabric is eco-friendly and surely a sustainable game-changer when it comes to offering alternatives to cotton as a fabric. In contrast to cotton which requires a lot of water and chemical fertilizers in the growth stage, bamboo has natural sterilization properties that help thwart bacteria, fungi, and pests.

The IIS University's research on Bamboo Fiber for Sustainable Development highlights its renewable nature, as bamboo can be continuously harvested without environmental harm, regenerating like grass. As a natural product derived from plant cellulose, bamboo is biodegradable, compostable, and eco-friendly. Referred to as "Air Vitamin" in Chinese academia, bamboo has many benefits for human health such as activating cells, purifying blood, and calming the nervous system. To make your favorite clothes out of bamboo, a very ordinary production process takes place: a bamboo plant is ground into fibers, spun by a machine, and the threads made out of this are what we use to make our clothing.

What Makes Bamboo Fabric A Top Choice?

From the 1920s to the present day, bamboo fabric is a style secret that has recently been enjoying a spotlight that is more modern. It is popular and commonly used in Asian countries such as Japan, Indonesia, and China as the major material or fabric. But bamboo fabric started to be commercialized by the beginning of the 21st century.

This fabric is becoming increasingly popular and it’s not hard to understand why. Its texture is incredibly soft. With that, its breathable characteristics and sustainability make it win a lot of customers. What makes bamboo special? Bamboo material is like the wind to your body because those little pores allow for incredible airflow. This being a quick absorber of moisture, your body temperature remains cool while you wear it. You won’t feel too hot or uncomfortable with what you are wearing.  Also, the natural antibacterial qualities have the ability to reduce bad odors even after multiple washing.

Take a glance at our Cairon Top – this is a masterful piece of draped clothing made from eco-friendly bamboo fabric that offers a luxurious feel against your skin while keeping you cool and comfortable throughout the day.  We start with the pulp of bamboo grass and grind it into a pure fiber. These fibers are used to weave cloths like linen, twill, or satin. It is the comfort level that makes the Cairon Top stand out – it maintains the temperature at a consistent level, both in hot and cold weather.  Comfort in all weather conditions is the idea, perfect for each weather condition.

Bamboo fabric's many benefits are the reason why people are increasingly turning towards it once again, it is comfortable and most importantly, eco-friendly. By investing in pieces that are both timeless and sustainable, we can redefine what it means to be stylish and responsible.

So, next time you want to extend your wardrobe in a sustainable, ethical, and environmentally friendly way, consider bamboo. Not only will you captivate others with your style, but you'll also be contributing to a brighter, more sustainable future for fashion. Explore our ANNEX collection and discover our pieces that are 100% natural and made of bamboo.
