Chemicals: Worries about the environment and safety and safety at work As described, most bamboo textiles are produced by a chemically intensive process. Bamboo leaves and the soft inner pith from the hard bamboo trunk are extracted in a steam process and then mechanically crushed to extract the cellulose. It has recently been based on bamboo production and some of the claims in the name of the material (in contrast to the harvest), in particular, the often repeated assertion that bamboo is “naturally antibacterial” - it is worth reading. The advantages of bamboo fabric are its very soft feeling (chemically produced) or ramie like feeling (mechanically produced), its antimicrobial properties, its moisture wicking abilities and its antistatic nature. While in recent years only has been used for structural elements such as hustle and corset tribs, in recent years various technologies have been developed that make it possible to use bamboo fibers for a variety of textile and fashion applications. The experiments conducted try to answer two main questions: (1) What differences exist in the textile properties between chemically produced and mechanically manufactured bamboo textiles. China is still the only country that grows bamboo on a commercial scale, and as it becomes an increasingly lucrative cash harvest, farmers are beginning to grow it as a mono-crop. Sarah Compson says: “We would be happy to certify bamboo at the Soil Association if anyone could find a sustainable method that goes through the entire supply chain, not just through the growing ones. The root system of the bamboo plant creates an effective catchment area that assembles the soil along sensitive riverbanks, deforested areas and in places prone to mud avalanches. Our undyed mixtures are fabrics that can be dyed in a variety of methods at home or in a professional dyeing house with dyes that are natural, fresh from your garden to completely fluorescent colors. We should know that most products labelled as “bamboo” are actually rayon, involve intensive chemical emissions and probably without the same beneficial properties as the unprocessed bamboo plant. In most cases, organic cotton will be a better choice from the point of view of the environment, all other things equal (especially the fabric die process). The plants are cooked in a cocktail of chemical solvents - primarily sodium hydroxide (lye, or caustic soda, as is commonly known) and carbon disulphide. It can also claim: * Naturally bacteria inhibiting (learn more) * Extremely absorbent yet breathable* Thermo-regulating - Warm in winter, cool in summer * Environmentally friendly - Grow and manufactured without the use of hard chemicals, heavy pollutants or soil degradation. Mechanically made fine bamboo fiber Some bamboo fibers are produced by a mechanical-bacterial process similar to retting flax in linen fibers. This regular harvest actually benefits the health of the plant — studies have shown that the felling of pipes leads to a vigorous regrowth and an increase in the amount of biomasses next year. The viscose processing results in the same chemical waste products as wood pulp viscose, especially carbon disulphide, but bamboo cellulose is suitable for a closed viscose that captures all the solvents used. The extensive root system of bamboo and the fact that it is not uprooted during harvesting means that bamboo actually helps to maintain the soil and prevent soil erosion. Ian Bamboo is often proclaimed as the renewable material in the world: it is naturally pest-resistant, grows incredibly fast and can actually help rebuild eroded soils. It captures warm air in its cross-sectional fibers to keep you warm in winter, while its breathable nature and moisture-influenced properties keep moisture at bay to provide more comfort in hot times. Rayon factories rarely provide information on their occupational exposure and compliance limits, and even in industrialized countries, legal limits are too lacking to prevent damage. Cutting through the Greenwash — Advantages and Disadvantages and Potential Upon closer examination, it is clear that bamboo textiles are not the silver ball of eco-clothing and movements through the marking enforcement bodies to reduce the Greenwash are well justified.
