Why Bamboo?

Thinking about switching to Bamboo but want to know more about the benefits? Here at Shelljon we believe bamboo has the power to change the world for the better, here are some reasons why…

Irresistibly soft

The softest and most sustainable fabric on the planet, praised for its humbling and healing properties. Bamboo doesn’t require any harmful chemicals to enhance its growth, producing a wholesome and pure fabric. Bamboo is light, airy and naturally mellow. Elegantly soft and cool for body, spirit and mind.

Powerfully insulating

Bamboo’s intelligent and self-regulating properties means the fabric is very efficient at insulating. By nature’s design bamboo fabric is 3 degrees cooler than cotton and wicks moisture away from your body. Letting your skin breath, cooling you in the summer and keeping you warm when it is cold.


Not only is Bamboo environmentally clean for the air we breath; Growing with only natural rain fall, consuming significantly more carbon dioxide and producing 35% more oxygen than standard trees. It is also clean for your skin. Bamboo fibres keep you odor-free and feeling fresh throughout the day. Furthermore, giving longer time between washes and less usage of water!

Kind to the planet

The sustainable benefits of Bamboo are in abundance. 100% organic fibres that are free from micro-plastics and other nasty chemicals, growing sustainably up to sometimes 3ft everyday with only natural rain fall. Bamboo fabric is also energy efficient with less need for high temperatures when washing. These are just naming a few but all these benefits add up stronger soil, cleaner air and a healthier environment for us and our planet.

To Conclude

Bamboo is one of the most sustainable recourses we have and we truly believe it has the power to restore our planets natural balance. More conscious use of this magnificent plant could greatly impact the fashion industry and ultimately aid our climate.

We hope this information has helped you with your decision on switching to bamboo. Make sure to spread the word of the sustainable powers of bamboo and enjoy this new world of clothing. We guarantee you won’t be disappointed!
