_________________________________

All our bamboo items are made of certified Oeko-tex Standard 100 bamboo
 
All types of textiles that have been tested for harmful substances, from yarn to the finish product, may bare the Standar 100 label.
 
STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® is one of the world's best-known labels for textiles tested for harmful substances. It stands for customer confidence and high product safety.
 
What does the label mean?
If a textile article carries the STANDARD 100 label, you can be certain that every component of this article, i.e. every thread, and other accessories, has been tested for harmful substances and that the article therefore is harmless for human health. The test is conducted by our independent OEKO-TEX® partner institutes on the basis of our extensive OEKO-TEX® criteria catalog. In the test they take into account numerous regulated and non-regulated substances, which may be harmful to human health. In many cases the limit values for the STANDARD 100 go beyond national and international requirements. The criteria catalog is updated at least once a year and expanded with new scientific knowledge or statutory requirements. It is not easy for manufacturers and customers to keep an overview of the legal situation concerning harmful substances every day. Our experts from the OEKO-TEX® institutes do this for you.

SOME FACTS ABOUT THE SUSTAINABILITY OF BAMBOO

_________________________________
It requires no irrigation
Bamboo grows in a variety of conditions. Bamboo can grow in arid regions where droughts cause other crops to fail and since the roots are left in place after harvesting, it helps to preserve vital moisture in the soil. From low wetlands to higher elevations in the mountains, bamboo thrives in a wide range of climates.
Renewable resource
Some species of bamboo grow more than three feet each day! No plant on the planet features a faster growth rate. When it is harvested, it will grow a new shoot from its extensive root system with no need for additional planting or cultivation.

 

Absorbs greenhouse gases
Bamboo absorbs 2x more carbon dioxide and releases 30% more oxygen into the atmosphere than an equivalent stand of hardwood trees.

 

Very little waste 
After harvesting, virtually every part of the plant is used to make a wide variety of products. From soil-enriching mulch to beautiful furniture to chopsticks, every part of the plant can be utilized.

 

No fertilizer, pesticides, or herbicides needed
Unlike most cash crops, bamboo requires no agricultural chemicals to thrive. Bamboo sequesters nitrogen and cultivation does not add chemicals to the environment.

 

Soil protection
Bamboo roots remain in place after harvesting where they prevent erosion and help retain nutrients for the next crop. This means it can stabilize and restore the land, and prevent landslides. So in countries which are prone to landslides, bamboo could be a good option.

 

Economic development
In less developed countries where unemployment leads to civil unrest, bamboo production and the manufacturing of bamboo products provides job opportunities in areas that desperately need social and economic stability.

 

Optimism and cultural cooperation
In a fractious world where wars are fought over resources, the increasing popularity of bamboo products provides an opportunity for diverse cultures to settle their difference through trade and cooperation that benefits everyone.
