Eco-conscious fashion designer Linda Loudermilk uses a somewhat unconventional fiber in her eco-friendly collections: bamboo. Luxuriously soft and smooth, bamboo makes an ideal fiber for flowing, natural looks.
It’s also less expensive than silk, cashmere and other luxury fibers. Growing bamboo is a very sustainable process, and bamboo is more eco-friendly than other fibers. Other designers are similarly turning to bamboo to infuse their collections with an organic, singular look. Designer Kate O’Connor has called bamboo “the perfect summer fabric.”
Designers and artists transform bamboo into a fiber by crushing the woody parts of the plant and using natural enzymes to break down the bamboo walls new balance 920. The natural fibers are then combed out and spun into yarn that can be made into the fabric commonly referred to as bamboo linen.
You might not be able to wear it, but this chic and funky Red Bamboo Rug is a great way to participate in the growing bamboo trend, and it’s certain to spice up any part of your home. Just like the fashion collections that showcase the radiance and simplicity of bamboo linen, this bamboo rug is stylish and sustainable!
The bamboo is durable and easy to clean. So you can bring a high-fashion vibe to your bathroom, kitchen — even your deck or patio!
