We decided to use organic bamboo to meet the needs for sustainability. Bamboo is a natural, and at the same time fast-growing, resource. Bamboo has even more benefits: no pesticides or insecticides are necessary for its cultivation, rain is a sufficient water supply, it can be cultivated very densely therefor only requiring little land to grow, it produces 30% more oxygen and absorbs more CO2 than common trees and can re-grow up to one meter a day. A process that uses a non-toxic solution to break down the wooden bamboo, produces high-quality bamboo fabric. The chopped up bamboo is soaked in this solution to produce cellulose. As soon as the cellulose fiber is created the whole water and solution are drained and re-used later. This whole process is eco-friendly and operated in a closed cycle. The solution is easily washed out, leaving no residues on the bamboo fiber.
Due to the hypoallergenic, antibacterial, antifungal and odor-neutral characteristics, sport clothing of this kind does not have to be washed as often as common sport clothing and water can be conserved.
Tie-dye with natural indigo:
The fabric is dyed by hand with precious, natural indigo sourced from local farmers. The achieved blue hues can vary depending on each indigo harvest. Meaning that you will have a unique product in your hands. The dying is true artisanal work and based on traditional tie-dye techniques from West Africa.
The indigo plant has been used for centuries in traditional African medicine. Modern examinations have proven its anti-inflammatory and arthritis-inhibiting properties. Wounds, gastrointestinal complaints and inflammations were traditionally treated with the indigo plant and it is given to women during and after childbirth. The indigo plant can also be consumed as an aphrodisiac. The healing and protective properties can be transferred to the fabric through the coloring process.
