What are the benefits of bamboo?
It's silky smooth to the touch and absorbs 60% more moisture than cotton. In addition, bamboo clothing is naturally bacteriostatic and odor resistant.
How is Swaens underwear made?
Bamboo fibers are the origin of the fabric that we use. The fibers are reformed cellulose made from bamboo pulp. This pulp is a natural and environmentally friendly material. These fibers are made during the viscose production process. Every Swaens has a ratio of 95% bamboo and 5% Spandex.
How sustainable is bamboo?
The bamboo plant grows everywhere. Especially on marginal land, where no other (agricultural) crops can grow. The bamboo plant does not need extra water to grow, a big advantage over water-consuming crops. Bamboo plants do not need pesticides, because there is a natural substance in the plant that counteracts diseases and pests. The bamboo plant grows very quickly and has a much higher production per land area than cotton. After harvesting the usable stem, the bamboo plant continues to grow; no replanting is necessary. another advantage is that the bamboo plants absorb more carbon dioxide (greenhouse gas) and the plant produces 30-35% more oxygen than trees.
