Bamboo fabric appeals to a number of eco-designers for its softness, sheen, and ease of drape. Bamboo is faster and cheaper to grow than cotton, and enriches the soil with essential nutrients. Currently, eco-conscious manufacturers are developing less energy-intensive, more sustainable production methods for bamboo fibers.
