First off, what is Bamboo?

Bamboo is an organic plant grown material that has hollow tubes like straws inside it and because of this it has an ideal fibre to volume ratio and can hold large amounts of water inside the tubes.
Bamboo fabric is made from the top 6-8 inches layer called Bamboo Veneer or Bamboo Lumber which is then processed into the Core material that we use in Yarn Spinning.

This also means that by using less of this material, the environment will be affected less.
To give you an idea on how the bamboo fabric compares to the cotton fabric in terms of weight and durability, some testing was done and the following was found:
- A Rayon/Cotton blend T-shirt weighs 14 oz and a bamboo blend T-shirt weighs only 8 oz.
- A 100% cotton shirt at weighs 14 oz while a 100% bamboo shirt weighs only 10 oz.
