It looks like wood but actually it isn't a wood, it is a grass, and unlike a tree, which can take decades to grow to maturity, bamboo grows quickly as much as several inches a day. And it doesn't even need pesticides fertilizers or replanting to grow this quickly.

Bamboo roots are very good at stabilizing erosion prone soil. It is a high yield renewable resource. It is a ready to harvest in 4-5 years. These factors help farmers to produce organic bamboo more easily and better. The pulp of organic bamboo has a very fine texture; it is much like the texture of silk.

To turn bamboo grass into fabric is a nontoxic chemical process. It produces a textile that is sensually soft, besides being very breathable, antimicrobial, and UV-resistant.

The most important good of this fiber is this: bamboo fiber is a unique biodegradable textile material. The decomposition process doesn't cause any kind of pollution in the environment. As a natural cellulose fiber, bamboo fiber can be 100% biodegraded in soil by microorganisms and sunlight.

Bamboo clothing is very soft and smooth, with bit of sheen similar to silk or cashmere. With anti-static properties it does not cling to the body and drapes really well, complementing the body's shape. It also moves freely enhancing the style of the garment.

Bamboo is a fiber that fascinates many fashion designers.

Purchasing clothes fashion accessories that have obtained organic certification we are assured of no toxin exposure to our largest organ, our skin. These benefits are especially important for young bodies, developing and growing.

Every member of the family can wear organic clothes fashion accessories. There are many options in the fashion market. Just navigating the Internet you may find many of them.

Fortunately organic clothes produced with safe ingredients, without animal products or by-products are natural and by using them we can keep our skin safe and our planet happy.

Best than better, these beautiful clothes, accessories fashion designs not only look wonderful but also feel great. Bamboo and soy add luxurious, flattering touch to the skin, as well as drape well on the body and move freely without pulling or clinging. Hemp, bamboo and 100% organic cotton clothing last long. Most important, all these fibers are healthy, breathable and easy care

Finally, whether we like it or not, we, all of us, are facing a big problem: in our environment toxins are abundant. It's widely known that pesticides can cause illnesses, skin problems and make Earth toxic. For sure it is always a good decision to avoid them whenever we can.

We can change that with organic crops, clothes fashion accessories.
