Organic clothing from bamboo and hemp

GREEN ROSE organic clothing are made from high quality organic, certificates fabrics - Bamboo, Hemp.

Why bamboo?

Bamboo is sustainable, eco-friendly, hypo-allergenic, has UV protection qualities, thermo-regulating, quick drying, soft as silk, great for sensitive skins and very comfortable to wear. It feels like cashmere and silk. It retains its softness even after many washes.

It is a natural, breathable fabric that keeps you comfortable and dry for longer. Can be worn all year round as it is cool in summer and warm in winter. It is anti-static, does not cling to your skin and therefore suitable for sensitive skin or those who suffer with eczema. Above all, has 95% UV protection. Bamboo material is strong and durable.

There are many consumers who have skin related problems that find it difficult to wear certain types of textile. Also this problem is very big for children. So bamboo clothes are really great for sensitive skin, since it has antibacterial properties.

Bamboo plants grow fast and don't require fertilizers or pesticides. They are 100% bio-degradable. They need very little water and can survive in just about any kind of environment.

Bamboo reduces the level of carbon dioxide and reduces soil erosion. Free of chemicals or pesticides. Decomposition does not cause pollution to the environment.

Bamboo textiles have a whole lot of potential as a environmentally friendly product, not to mention the particular soft qualities and kind-to-skin attributes of which currently have got them this far.

Why hemp?

Hemp is grown without herbicides, pesticides or other chemicals, making it a perfect material for your baby and the environment. Hemp contains natural anti-microbial properties that help to avoid diaper rash. Hemp is a natural fiber that provides 8 times the absorbency of cotton and is one of the strongest fabrics, so hemp diapers will last much longer than others.

Superior Properties. Hemp fiber is one of the strongest and most durable of all natural textile fibers. Products made from hemp will outlast their competition by many years. Not only is hemp strong, but it also holds its shape, stretching less than any other natural fiber. This prevents hemp garments from stretching out or becoming distorted with use. Hemp may be known for its durability, but its comfort and style are second to none. The more hemp is used, the softer it gets. Hemp doesn't wear out, it wears in. Hemp is also naturally resistant to mold and ultraviolet light.

Due to the porous nature of the fiber, hemp is more water absorbent, and will dye and retain its color better than any fabric including cotton. This porous nature allows hemp to "breathe," so that it is cool in warm weather. Furthermore, air which is trapped in the fibers is warmed by the body, making hemp garments naturally warm in cooler weather.

Environmental Advantages. Hemp is an extremely fast growing crop, producing more fiber yield per acre than any other source. Hemp can produce 250% more fiber than cotton and 600% more fiber than flax using the same amount of land. The amount of land needed for obtaining equal yields of fiber place hemp at an advantage over other fibers.

Hemp grows best in warm tropical zones or in moderately cool, temperate climates, such as the United States. Hemp leaves the soil in excellent condition for any succeeding crop, especially when weeds may otherwise be troublesome. Where the ground permits, hemp's strong roots descend for three feet or more. The roots anchor and protect the soil from runoff, building and preserving topsoil and subsoil structures similar to those of forests. Moreover, hemp does not exhaust the soil. Hemp plants shed their leaves all through the growing season, adding rich organic matter to the topsoil and helping it retain moisture. Farmers have reported excellent hemp growth on land that had been cultivated steadily for nearly 100 years.

Hemp Today. As a fabric, hemp provides all the warmth and softness of a natural textile but with a superior durability seldom found in other materials. Hemp is extremely versatile and can be used for countless products such as apparel, accessories, shoes, furniture, and home furnishings. Apparel made from hemp incorporates all the beneficial qualities and will likely last longer and withstand harsh conditions. Hemp blended with other fibers easily incorporates the desirable qualities of both textiles. The soft elasticity of cotton or the smooth texture of silk combined with the natural strength of hemp creates a whole new genre of fashion design.

The possibilities for hemp fabrics are immense. It is likely that they will eventually supersede cotton, linen, and polyester in numerous areas. With so many uses and the potential to be produced cheaply, hemp textiles are the wave of the future!
