The desire to surround yourself with luxurious and sustainable products is more pertinent than ever. There is a growing appetite for creating personal havens at home, a kind of sanctuary where we can nurture ourselves and replenish our body and mind.
But is it possible for us to find bedding and homewares that deliver this experience without harming the environment? The answer is yes.
Turning to bamboo
For many, selecting environmentally conscious and sustainable fabric isn’t an option; it is a necessity.
OLARA is committed to providing premium 100% organic bamboo fabric products to the Australian market.
Five benefits of bamboo fabric
1. Bamboo fabric is moisture-wicking.
As bamboo grows in hot, moist climates, the plant soaks up moisture, retaining it to help it’s growth. Bamboo fabric has similar moisture-wicking properties, ensuring you stay dry and comfortable overnight during hot Australian summer months
2. Bamboo fabric is naturally odour resistant.
Natural bamboo fibre resists odours. The antibacterial properties of the plant also allow it to resist mould and mildew, which can otherwise ruin bed sheets and pillowcases. Your bamboo bedding will continue to smell fresh and clean for longer than standard cotton bedding, however we still recommend regularly changing and washing it to maintain optimal hygiene.
3. Bamboo fabric is gentle on skin.
OLARA’s bedding range contains luxuriously soft premium bamboo fabric that is gentle on your skin. This means there is less friction between your facial skin and hair against the pillowcase, which can result in less hair breakage and less irritation of the skin while sleeping.
