Little Neck, NY (PRWEB) August 19, 2008
MidoriLinen.com announces the availability of a line of luxury sheets, pillow cases, bath towels, kitchen towels, throws, bath robes, and slippers made from all natural, highly breathable, highly absorbent, sustainable, and renewable bamboo.
Bamboo is an earth-friendly textile fiber. As nature's fastest growing plant, bamboo can grow as much as 18 inches a day, replenishing itself naturally without replanting. Bamboo can be harvested annually and it helps slow down deforestation. Bamboo also plays a critical role in the balance of oxygen and carbon dioxide in the atmosphere.
Bamboo requires no fertilizer or pesticide to grow due to its naturally antifungal and antibacterial properties ("bamboo kun"). 100% bamboo fiber exhibits a 99.8% kill rate after a 24 hour incubation period, according to a study done by the China Industrial Testing Center (CTITC). In a similar study performed by the Japan Textile Inspection Association (JTIA), results showed that bamboo fabric has antibacterial efficacy greater than 70% after 50 industrial washings. Bamboo fiber inhibits mildew growth to help maintain a healthy home. Bamboo textiles are also naturally odor-resistant.
As soft as silk and cashmere but yet highly breathable, bamboo fiber is three times more absorbent than cotton. Its insulating properties keep you cooler in summer and warmer in winter.
About 40% of the U.S. population has sensitive skin. Bamboo textile is also hypoallergenic. People with sensitive skin will truly benefit from textiles made from this fiber.
