*BAMBOO TOWELLING (90% Bamboo 10% Polyester):
Bamboo made of environmentally friendly woven bamboo is highly biodegradable. Being an eco-friendly material, bamboo has hardly any impact on the environment. Contrary to cotton, it can thrive naturally without the use of pesticides.
Bamboo is made of the highest quality East Asian Bamboo. Compared to fibres originating from wood (viscose rayon) or other petrochemical fibres (polyester), bamboo has important advantages to offer: a short growth cycle and easy cultivation.
ANTIBACTERIAL BY NATURE
It results from tests carried out by Testex, an independent Swiss Laboratory, that bamboo fabric is antibacterial by nature (JIS L 1902 Quantitative test). The Japanese Textile Federation has confirmed that after 100 washing cycles bamboo fiber fabric still possesses its antibacterial properties.
Bamboo fabric also surpasses cotton in moisture absorption. Its criss cross texture creating microscopic openings in the fibers, guarantees a truly exceptional moisture absorption. Tests have shown that bamboo absorbs 60% more moisture thatn cotton and dries 20% quicker than cotton.

It looks like normal looped towelling on one side and on the other side (the right side) it looks more like Plush fabric, in that it has a straight cut pile.
*ORGANIC BAMBOO VELOUR (70% bamboo 28% cotton and 2% polyester backing for durability) - A super soft absorbent and stretchy fabric which feels like velvet. It stays lovely and soft, wash after wash.
A NOTE ABOUT PRE-WASHING We have no control over the finishing agents used on the fabrics, and therefore we recommend that your first wash be at 30 degrees, using the full quantity of washing powder recommended by the manufacturer. You can wash it and wash it, and rinse it and rinse it, but if you don't use the full recommended amount of detergent in your wash, you will not remove any oily residues that may be on the fabric from the manufacturing process.
