A Versatile and Renewable Resource
With every new design added to our shop, we make a concerted effort towards sustainability. We are committed to using natural, earth-friendly, and sustainable textiles and trims, which is why we choose to use soft bamboo/cotton knits for many of our designs.
When used in clothing, bamboo offers many beneficial attributes:
- Highly Renewable
Bamboo is one of the fastest growing plants on the planet (growing up to a meter per day). Bamboo forests are also dense and return up to 30% more oxygen to the atmosphere—making it a highly resilient and prolific plant!
- Water Conserving
Recognized as being soil-friendly, needing little irrigation or treatment in cultivation, bamboo requires much less water to grow (as much as 30% less) than many other plants and trees.
Although we strive to make our products with quality and longevity in mind, nothing lasts forever. When your favorite Lacson Ravello styles are ready to retire, they will eventually biodegrade.
- Pesticide Free
Bamboo is naturally pest-resistant and flourishes without the use of added chemicals—making it an environmentally low-impact option.
- Temperature Regulating
Bamboo fiber has a naturally ventilated structure which makes it breathable and cooler in the summer and noticeably warmer in the winter—versatile enough to wear throughout the year.
- Insanely Soft
The smooth and round structure of the bamboo fiber gives it a softness and unparalleled comfort level.
- Wrinkle Resistant
This fabric is almost impossible to wrinkle and holds it shape well, even after washing—a travel must-have!
