For the past few years, people have become more aware of how their actions and choices have an impact on the environment. And according to Google Trends, the search for the term ‘sustainable fashion’ has been gradually increasing, reflecting the current trend to buy products that are environmentally friendly.
Here at Osan we’re very aware of the impact that the fashion industry has in the environment. That’s why we’re always looking for ways to reduce our ecological footprint and use more sustainable materials in our products.
Bamboo yarn, used for many clothing items such as socks, is made with bamboo grass and considered an eco-friendly material.
Praised as “the natural, green and eco-friendly material of the 21st century”, bamboo is naturally grown without using any pesticides or fertilisers and is 100% biodegradable.
Bamboo offers numerous advantages as an adaptable and sustainable material used for textiles.
The bamboo plant is part of the grass family and grows very fast, regenerating quickly after cutting. The same way a lawn continues growing after mowing, bamboo does not need to be replanted. This means that bamboo prevents soil erosion and can also slow deforestation, as its roots aren’t destroyed when harvesting yearly.
Bamboo is also a very strong plant and adjustable to different climates, meaning that it doesn’t require a lot of water to grow.
Bamboo socks are becoming more and more popular thanks to its luxurious feel and anti-bacterial properties. These super soft socks help stop bacteria from growing and keep feet fresh and odour-free for longer.
The smooth round fibres of bamboo socks also make them perfect for sensitive or allergy prone skin. It absorbs and evaporates moisture in just a few seconds and stays 2 degrees cooler in hot weather.
