Anti Bacterial/Anti Fungal
Bamboo fabric is composed of strong anti-microbial properties. It is believed to consist of 3 times more anti-bacterial qualities than cotton clothing. In the wild bamboo thrives without the help of pesticides and fertilizers. It is rarely affected by pests or infected by pathogens. Bamboo contains a bio-agent called “bamboo kun” which retains the anti-bacterial properties in the fabric. Unlike other anti-microbial fabrics which need chemical treatments, organic bamboo fiber clothing is naturally anti-microbial, requiring no harmful chemicals. Bamboo clothing’s natural anti-bacterial function differs greatly from that of man-made chemical anti-microbial fabrics, which often tend to cause skin problems.
Ideal for Sensitive Skins
Bamboo apparel is hypoallergenic. The bamboo fiber used in Zhai apparel is made from 100% organic bamboo. Bamboo fiber is smooth and round and its organic and natural fiber properties make it non-irritating to the skin. Zhai apparel is a great alternative for anyone with sensitive skin, allergies, eczema or other forms of dermatitis. The bamboo fiber used in Zhai apparel has been awarded the OEKO-Tex 100 Class I certificate. This means that the bamboo fiber used in Zhai apparels is free of harmful substances. Bamboo fiber is unbelievably soft and suitable even for babies. Please kindly note that our clothing contains 5% spandex, to give the clothing elasticity and maximum comfort. This does not compromise the anti-bacterial quality of Zhai apparel.
Soft and Luscious on the skin
Wearing bamboo material has been described as a sensual experience, like the feel of cashmere or silk. It has a very distinctive lustrous sheen.
Bamboo is smooth and soft on the skin. The inherent quality of bamboo fiber (on a microscopic level bamboo fiber has a round surface) makes it a delightful tactile experience unlike other fibers.
Strong and Durable/ Ideal for Travel
Bamboo clothing is strong and durable and requires low maintenance. Bamboo is machine washable and highly resistant and abrasion proof. Its longevity is superior to clothing derived from cotton. It is wrinkle resistant, lightweight, and dries very quickly, making it an ideal choice for travel.
