For those who haven't experienced bamboo fabric before, the idea can be a little strange. Bamboo is a grass that grows incredibly quickly and is one of the most renewable fiber sources on the planet.

To make bamboo into fabric, it is pulped, and the fibers are spun together to make the fabric. The resulting product takes dye well and can be made just about any color.

There are some qualities inherent in bamboo fabric that make it a particularly good choice for organic bamboo towels.

First, bamboo can easily absorb a lot of water, which means you dry off quickly. It is also incredibly soft and luxurious.

Bamboo is naturally antibacterial, which makes it a good choice for the bathroom. They are also machine washable and easy to care for.
