Bamboo Women’s Clothing
Here at Headcovers, we believe that you should never sacrifice comfort for style—because it’s possible to have both! Our collection of bamboo clothing from Cardani will help you achieve the look you love while feeling incredibly comfy. We first offered bamboo clothing to coordinate with our popular Cardani headwear line and these chic, versatile pieces have quickly become our favorite wardrobe staples.
The Benefits of Bamboo
The first benefit of bamboo is obvious from the moment you touch it—it’s unbelievably soft! Many people compare the silky, sumptuous texture of bamboo fabric to high quality cashmere; however, bamboo is much lighter and non-allergenic (so it’s perfect if you find wool, cashmere, or alpaca too itchy). Bamboo fabrics are also naturally porous, which means that the material can breathe as well as insulate to remain comfortable in a wide range of temperatures. Finally, bamboo easily absorbs moisture and dries quickly, making it an excellent natural fiber if you’re planning to exercise, head to the beach, or spend time outdoors on warm summer days.
The first time you put on a piece of bamboo clothing, you’ll also notice that it drapes beautifully. Why? Because the bamboo fibers themselves are naturally round and smooth, which gives the fabric remarkable softness and fluidity. This unique quality allows designers to create particularly flattering silhouettes with bamboo textiles. While bamboo clothing might feel like your favorite pajamas, it will look stylish enough to wear at home, at work, or out and about every day.
Bamboo Clothing for Cancer Patients
When you’re dealing with cancer or illness, it’s more important than ever to choose clothing that helps you feel comfortable and confident. Bamboo clothing offers several benefits that make it an outstanding choice for cancer patients. If you or someone you love is undergoing cancer treatment, stock up on a wardrobe of bamboo t-shirts, pants, and dresses (plus coordinating headwear) to make daily life just a bit easier.
Why is bamboo such a great choice for cancer patients? First and foremost, it’s soft and soothing for even the most sensitive skin. Bamboo shirts won’t irritate your skin when you’re recovering from a mastectomy or dealing with the side effects of chemo or radiation. Bamboo fabrics contain natural antibacterial properties, so they’re an excellent option for those who are more vulnerable to germs and infections during chemotherapy. These fabrics also help to protect against UV rays, which is especially important because your skin may be more sensitive to sunlight and slower to heal during cancer treatment.
Is Bamboo Fabric Eco-Friendly?
The short answer to this question is yes! Most bamboo fabrics are made using Moso bamboo, a species of tropical grass native to China and Taiwan. Bamboo grows and regenerates quickly with minimal requirements for water or pesticides, making it an extremely sustainable crop—and it even cleans the air as it grows!
Caring for Bamboo Clothing
Most super-soft fabrics, like silk or cashmere, require delicate and specialized care routines that might make you hesitate before reaching for them in your closet. If you’re worried that the same could be true for bamboo, we have good news! Bamboo clothing can easily be washed at home, no dry cleaning necessary.
To keep your bamboo fabrics looking their best, wash them in cold to warm water using a bleach-free detergent on a gentle cycle. Be sure to turn your garments inside out and close all buttons and zippers to prevent any pilling. It’s best to air dry bamboo fabrics by laying them flat; this will help them retain their shape through countless wears.
