What makes bamboo socks sustainable?
Thanks to recent innovations in textile technology, developing fabrics are able to be produced more sustainably and ethically than ever before, while providing superior texture and durability when compared to traditional textiles. Today, we’re bringing you the cream of the crop– bamboo socks, sourced from sustainably produced bamboo.
Bamboo grows incredibly fast– at 12 inches of growth a day, it takes just three to four years to go from seed to harvest. Thanks to its natural hardiness, it’s able to be grown in environments unsuitable for other crops while producing 35% more oxygen and absorbing five times more carbon than similarly sized stands of trees. Bamboo crops require little to no outside irrigation. These incredible grasses rely primarily on rainfall, and once seeded, farmers rarely need to do so again. Bamboo develops a robust root network as it matures, regrowing and replenishing on its own and eliminating the need for tilling and replanting. This also eliminates the need for pesticide and fertilizer use! Speaking of soil tilling– that robust root network is capable of hosting a plethora of microbial worlds which contribute to regenerating soil quality while simultaneously preventing erosion. Together, these factors contribute to making bamboo production more sustainable than many other commercially available fabrics, such as cotton.
That all sounds great, but
what does this have to do with socks?
Unlike cotton, polyester, and nylon blends, bamboo fabrics are capable of acting as natural deodorizers and dependable insulators thanks to their micro-porous structure. It’s also this structure that leaves bamboo cloth softer than fabrics made of cotton and other popular textiles.
We’ve taken this incredible cloth, and designed a perfect pair of socks with the ability to stretch and conform to difficult curves, allowing them to hug like a second skin and leave you walking on clouds. Socks made from sustainable bamboo will continually return to their original form after hundreds of wears and runs through the wash! We guarantee you’ll find these socks so lightweight and breathable, you’ll forget you’re wearing them at all.
