 Fashion Industry Fueled by Bamboo Charcoal

Bamboo is referred to as "the Black Diamond" in Japan and Southeast Asia, bamboo charcoal fiber use is an emerging trend in the fashion industry.

Nanotechnology is defined as the "understanding, manipulation, and control of matter at the level above, thus, the physical, chemical, and biological properties of materials (individual atoms, molecules, and bulk matter) to develop the next generation of improved materials, devices, structures, and systems. "Textile attributes for instance softness, durability, water resistance and breathability may be enhanced with the use of nanotechnology.

The several positive features of bamboo charcoal fabric include:

Easier on sensitive skin – The tissue inhibits bacterial metabolism.

Reduces Static buildup – This is really a conductive material so it keeps a balanced charge in a static buildup.

Superior Washing and Durability – Bamboo charcoal fibers are quick-drying and because of the charcoal nano particles are embedded in the fabric rather than simply coated on the surface, the fabric may be subjected to no adverse effect on the charcoal qualities.

Moisture Regulation – Bamboo charcoal yarn has a cross-section filled with various micro-gaps and micro-holes so compared to conventional fabrics, it is better at moisture absorption and ventilation. The fabric keeps the wearer dry and comfortable on hot days.

While the bamboo fabric technology is still relatively new, only gaining momentum in Asia from the mid-1990s, its uses are growing widespread from clothing to carpeting to bedding. Bamboo charcoal is often a surprising but strong contender.

Another fine contender stemming from the world's most renewable resource – bamboo – bamboo fabric, offering a wide selection of fashion trends from bamboo clothing to bedspreads.
