Our bamboo is created by crushing the bamboo plant and using a natural enzyme to break it down before fibres are created and spun into yarn. Our bamboo is organically grown and Oeko-tex certified. We manufacture our bamboo fabric using a closed-loop process, without the use of harmful chemicals.

Does bamboo fabric pill?
Our bamboo is an organic and natural textile, which has not been treated with harmful chemicals. As with all natural fabrics, the bamboo may experience slight pilling with initial use, however this is reduced or removed during the washing and drying process (as per the care instructions). This is normal for natural fibres, especially in response to friction and isn't a fault or defect.
Are bamboo sheets durable?
Yes, these sheets wear just as well as high quality cotton sheets. We do recommend replacing your bedding over time due to the oils from your body. It’s important to change your pillowcases more frequently than your sheets. We recommend every 6-12 months for pillowcases and 18-24 months for sheets depending on how many sets you alternate between.
I have a really deep mattress, will these sheets fit?
Yes, our sheets are really generous and perfect for deep mattresses or mattresses with toppers.
What thread count are your sheets?
400 thread count bamboo, which is equivalent to around 1,000 thread count cotton. Thread count isn't the most important thing to consider when selecting sheets as it can often be misleading. The quality and weave of the fabric, and the way if feels to you, is the most important factor.
Does your sleepwear shrink?

Our organic bamboo is from China, manufactured by a highly experienced team who create extremely soft, high quality bamboo fabric. We selected a Turkish manufacturer for our bamboo cotton towels.
What are the differences between cotton and bamboo sheets?
Bamboo has a huge range of benefits. It is even more breathable than cotton, making it great for both summer and winter.

Bamboo uses only 1/3 of the water required to grow cotton and has no natural pests (meaning there is no need for the use of pesticides).
