Hit the Gym in Clothing Made From Bamboo Fibers

November 5, 2012 | Ellie Stone

What would you say if I told you that companies were creating clothes from bamboo fibers? Think fast, because bamboo clothes are hitting the market whether you're ready or not! Made from one of the oldest natural fibers on earth, bamboo clothes offer athletes an alternative to their synthetic workout apparel.

The moisture-wicking properties of synthetic fibers, like polyester, made them ideal for workouts; however, that same quick-drying material left athletes in smelly, bacteria-infested clothing post-workout. With bamboo clothes now available, athletes have an alternative fabric that not only absorbs sweat, but also keeps them smelling good!

Wearing bamboo-spun clothing has many advantages. Organic bamboo is sustainable to harvest, it's naturally anti-bacterial, it absorbs moisture from the body, and it kills the germs that cause post-workout odor. In addition, bamboo has great insulating properties; and many believe bamboo clothes are softer than cotton or synthetic materials. After a hard workout wearing the fabric, you will smell as sweet as a rose—well maybe not that sweet, but you will smell a lot better than you would have if you had been wearing any synthetic material!

If you're looking for some new workout gear that won't smell, chafe, or stay wet, check out the new lines of bamboo athletic clothing from environmentally conscious companies like Good Gear, Green Apple, and Bamboo Clothing.
