I come from the land of mostly sun and thick air…soft, cool fabrics are a must…most of the year. That is why this new line from Canada, LNBF, caught my attention. Because they use predominately bamboo to fashion their clothing. They are a small Canadian fashion label which marries style and sustainablity. “We combine eco-friendly bamboo and organic cotton fabrics with comfort and versatility – especially designed for busy women over 40. Our goal is to inspire future generations (our kids, and our grandchildren) to create a more sustainable world – starting with the clothes we wear.”
On Monday, I told you how much I love my bamboo sheets…they are so soft; and cooler in the heat, warmer in the cold. These clothes from LNBF have the same feel to them…and beautiful design.
This COCOON JACKET has a touch of edge with the studs, but an excellent fit and feel for my wardrobe.
Here are some important FACTS ABOUT LBNF:
* They work with Oeko-Tex certified suppliers to ensure no harmful substances are used in the textiles.
*Bamboo crops are certified organic by the OCIA
*Bamboo yields 10X more material per acre than conventional cotton (taking up less precious agricultural farm land)
*Bamboo does not need irrigation, uses 2/3 less water than conventional cotton to grow (another precious resource)
*Their mills used a ‘closed-loop’ process, so any solvents used in the manufacturing process are reused and not released into the environment
*Our bamboo viscose is ultra-soft, thermo-regulating and breathable – perfect for people with eczema, sensitive or dry skin…OR PRONE TO HOT FLASHES
This is a line you should check out if you want to give bamboo a try!
