Sustainable resource - bamboo is one
of the world's fastest-growing plants,
up to a metre in a day. It grows very
densely and requires minimal water - an
excellent yield compared with cotton
Carbon friendly - bamboo plantations
reduce greenhouse gases by absorbing
five times the amount of carbon dioxide,
and producing up to 35% more oxygen,
than an equivalent space of trees
Organically grown - bamboo's
inherent properties make it naturally
bacteria and pest-resistant, negating
the need for pesticides, herbicides and
fertilisers. It grows rapidly, allowing
regular harvesting in a shorter period
and smaller spaces than other textiles
All Bamboo peshtemals with a high
bamboo content provide exceptional
softness and absorbency.
With a flat weave as opposed to
the convention loop/pile construction,
peshtemals weigh less and take up
far less space both in your bathroom,
washing machine and suitcase.
Flat weave construction also reduces
the harbouring of damp odours and
allergens - perfect for those with
