When we think of bamboo, the first thing that comes into our mind is a panda. We all know just how much the pandas love eating the shoots and the leaves from bamboo trees. Apart from this, when asked to think of any other uses of bamboo, most people really can’t think of much apart from the fact that they may be used for construction purposes. What we overlook is the fact that bamboo, apart from being food for pandas, has many other properties. Bamboo is naturally anti-bacterial and thus has various medicinal purposes. It is also used to make furniture and other objects, and is generally a very strong material. Apart from this, bamboo trees are one of the fastest growing trees in the world, and are highly sustainable as they only require rainwater to grow. This small bit of bamboo trivia that you have gotten so far is enough to make the bamboo trees seem like miracle trees right? Well, there is another, much more surprising use of bamboo – bamboo fibres can be woven into thread to make all sorts of cloth! The cloth made from bamboo can be the perfect mix of softness, warmth and durability that we want in cloth. Bamboo really can be multi-purpose.
When shopping for quilts, we look for the softest quilt, which allows us to breathe while keeping us cool in the summers and warm in the winters. We want our quilt to be durable, and not accumulate dust to trigger those pesky allergies. All the while, the quilts need to be the softest possible to make sure that we have the best sleep ever. Really, the list of requirements can be long and never ending. It is only understandable, however, as a good night’s sleep is heavily dependent on both the mattress and the quilt. Just as a bad mattress can disrupt our sleep, a heavy, cumbersome quilt which is either too warm or too cold can leave us tossing and turning. Coarse or lumpy quilts can have the same effect, so picking out the perfect quilt is really important if we want to sleep well the whole night through.
Bamboo can be the perfect quilt blend to satisfy all these requirements. The high thread density means that other blends, such as cotton or wool can never be as soft. These quilt covers can have the most luxurious feeling to them and can be feather light on us so that we do not feel trapped under immense weight while we try to sleep. Furthermore, unlike other blends, bamboo quilt covers are naturally dust resistant and anti bacterial so you can be sure that your quilt will never be the cause of your allergies, and will always be as germ free as possible. These bamboo quilt covers can also be the perfect option for those of us who are more environment friendly (which should be all of us), as they are 100% biodegradable and 100% natural. The bamboo trees grow back without any human intervention, such as with pesticides or fertilisers, and grow back 33% faster than normal trees. The bamboo quilt covers can be the wonder-quilt from the wonder-plant!
