The bamboo manufacturing process

The process used for creating Love & Lee bamboo blankets and bamboo washcloths is the yarn fibres are created by the bamboo plant being crushed and using natural enzymes to break the plant down, the fibres are then created and spun into yarn.  All bamboo yarn for our bamboo blankets and bamboo washcloths are naturally grown and Oeko-Tex with  STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® .

The bamboo is manufactured using a closed loop process, without the use of harmful chemicals, ensuring the most environmentally and safest process is used.

The bamboo plant

Did you know that some species of bamboo can grow up to 90cm in 24 hours!  Bamboo reduces CO2 in our environment and even makes up to 30% more oxygen than an equal amount of trees.

We love using bamboo for our blankets and washcloths because it is such a sustainable and adaptable plant, it has a very high growth rate and can be grown in many different types of climates.  In addition, the regular harvesting of bamboo benefits the health of the plant as bamboo is classified as a grass.  When bamboo is harvested the canes grow back vigorously and increases the following years’ harvest.
