What We Are About...
BaemBu is founded on a strong ethical and ecological theme, we have the first apparel in the UAE which is made of 70% bamboo & 30% organic cotton. We spend a lot of time ensuring our products can trace an ethical and sustainable path back to their origins, right through to the bamboo and cotton being organically grown and sourced through certified, fair trading schemes. Even the ink and printing process has to be ecologically as good as you can get.
We want to get to the point where people know who we are, love the products, enjoy what we do, and seek us out at every event in the knowledge that they’ll probably have more fun as a result. Ethics and sustainability are a core belief, not a marketing ploy.
Bamboo fibre is rapidly taking hold as the ideal material for sports clothing. However, unlike artificial fibres, it does not cause issues with odour and works just as well as casual wear as it does for sports use, which is why we do not differentiate between the two in our products.
Reasons we use it...
- Excellent natural moisture wicking; ideal for sports clothing
- Very smooth, soft and naturally stretchy; hangs and feels much like silk or cashmere
- Hypoallergenic; ideal for wearing next to the skin without irritation
- Naturally anti-bacterial and odour-resistant
- Very durable and easy to care for – no special washing instructions
- Excellent insulating properties that keep the wearer cooler in summer and warmer in winter
- Excellent natural resistance to sunlight (far greater than cotton)
- Sustainable crop – very fast-growing, absorbs huge amounts of CO2 and requires no pesticides and herbicides to thrive
- Obtainable via traceable, certified ethical supply chains
