Bamboo fabric. Reputedly softer than the softest cotton on the market today. Believe it.
My blue bamboo scarf feels so good around my neck, I never want to take it off. In fact, sometimes I don't.
Since scarves are the accessory of the season (or is it the clutch? depends on who you read), I feel quite good about it becoming my accessory of the season. Plus it's made from bamboo - good for the planet and good for me.
Bamboo is considered nature’s most sustainable and naturally regenerative resource. Bamboo fabric is exquisitely soft to the touch and is naturally anti-microbial, hypoallergenic, thermal
regulating and odor free. Bamboo is grown without fertilizers, pesticides or insecticides and is biodegradable. My scarf is made with non-toxic and AZO free dyes.
Since bamboo is grown in abundance in China, this is where the majority of bamboo clothing is made. Banish any environmental concerns however, as the U.S. company that actually made my scarf keeps a watchful eye over the process of breaking down the bamboo stalks to make them into fibre and has close relationships the factories and workers, ensuring they're aligned with the vision of providing nurturing natural products while consciously caring for people and the environment.
The factory that sews the fabric has expanded in the last three years, employing more local women from the village and bringing in more family members.
So there it is. Feel good wearing it, feel good about wearing it.
