Kalamazoo, MI (PRWEB) November 19, 2010
Flooding in parts of India and Pakistan have caused a shortage of cotton this year, which has caused a supply shortage in the clothing and linen industries. This however, is good news for companies like Bamboo Styles, who carry clothing and sheets made primarily of viscose from bamboo.
In a recent report by CBS Evening News, cotton prices has skyrocketed over 400%, mainly due the shortage. These prices are undoubtedly passed along to the consumer, just in time for what is traditionally a huge selling season for retailers. Higher prices, combined with an already shaky economy, is not good news for most consumers. But Bamboo Styles has seen an uptick in sales due to the fact that bamboo clothing is now more cost competitive compared to cotton than it has been in the past. Bamboo Styles has seen an increase of 50% in its bamboo clothing sales over the past few months.
Bamboo Styles is an online retailer of bamboo sheets and clothing and has been in business since 2006. http://www.bamboostylesonline.com
