Eco-friendly can by stylish with bamboo fabrics

When you think of eco-friendly, comfortable clothing, visions of beige cotton t-shirts tend to come to mind. But today's alternative fibers offer more fashionable, sophisticated options without compromising comfort.

Peters Path's bamboo line proves this with chic, fitted tops and shirts that can be dressed up or down with jeans or dressier bottoms. Bamboo, which is a wonderfully renewable resource, offers a variety of benefits, including breathability, slight elasticity and the ability to produce vibrant, rich color since the fabric is highly permeable and favorable for pigmentation.

A recent article by a well-known textile manufacturer notes some interesting facts about the use of bamboo in apparel, highlighting the superior fiber and softness, which they say outranks Tencel, and the durability of the fabrics, which withstand standard washing and drying machine cleaning.

Because bamboo resists disease, the plant does not require potentially harmful chemical treatment. The fabric also possesses resistance against the sun's damaging UV radiation, and also has anti-bacterial properties. It's a great choice for people who are prone to skin problems and allergies.

We plan to continue adding bamboo to our line of ec0-friendly fashions, so keep checking in to see what's new at Peters Path!
