The bamboo fabric in Sanyukta Shrestha’s collection is hand spun and weaved by women from Tushi Meher Mahila Ashram (the first social organisation to help deprived women in Nepal and has continued to for 80 years). Did you see our last post - a gown made from bamboo fibre? 💚🎋🍃 Here's some interesting facts about #bamboo:
Bamboo is a highly sustainable crop as it does not claim farming land, grows very fast and needs minimal care. It is a much better CO2 extractor and oxygen emitter than trees, and is also biodegradable. Bamboo has thermo-control, anti-microbial and anti-static properties that make it sit well next to the skin. The fabric is extremely suitable for healthy clothing, especially for young and sensitive skin. Bamboo also protects from UV light. With its soft and natural surface sheen, Bamboo is sometimes referred to as ‘cashmere from plants’.
