Did you know bamboo is the fastest growing plant in the world, and requires very little water? This and other tidbits of bamboo you can read from my first article as a Beauty & Fashion editor at Type-A Mom.
I am a huge fan of bamboo fabric not just for the ecological reasons, but also for it’s silk like softness. When it comes to babies clothing, the softness, comfortability and practicality come hand in hand when choosing the best products. Bamboo offers all of them. Bamboo fabric washes well, is antibacterial and hypoallergenic and ecological. And did I mention bamboo is so soft … in fact I think you just need to try it to really believe it!
