Our Bamboo Process
Bamboo's come a long way since tiki huts and fishing poles . . . . So, how do bamboo fields become bamboo shirts? Here's Cariloha's unique process for harvesting and producing this truly green resource.
First, we cut the seasoned stalks into smaller pieces of raw bamboo.
Next, the bamboo is soaked in a solution via a closed loop process to ensure that this process is as environmentally friendly as the bamboo it soaks.
This solution breaks down the bamboo fibers, extracting the bamboo pulp that is then dried into parchment-like sheets.
Once thoroughly dried, these sheets are ready to be milled into a soft, fluffy material referred to as viscose from bamboo.
It is then separated and spun into thread that’s used to create yarn for weaving.
The end result is a naturally luxurious fabric that's twice as soft as cotton.
