The benefits of bamboo fabric for baby and kids clothing

As parents, we know the fabric you put next to your baby and kids skin is important. That's why we searched high and low for the best fabric for our PJs. We found the beautiful bamboo fabric that makes up our first collection and instantly fell in love with it. Why you ask? Simple:

Soft: Bamboo rayon is silky smooth and is one of the softest fabrics on the planet. Seriously, you've got to feel this stuff!

The lightweight material stays true to its soft texture without becoming itchy even after multiple washes. It won't easily unravel or become scratchy. Bamboo fabric has a luxurious feel making bedtime something to look forward to.

Moisture Wicking and Temperature Regulating:

We've heard from many parents who say that bamboo’s temperature regulating capabilities is one of their favorite features. This allows you to take the guesswork out of bedtime. No longer do you need to ask yourself, “Is my baby warm enough?” or how about, “Will my baby get too warm during the night and wake up?” 

Our bamboo clothing contains micro-gaps which help in ventilation and regulate body temperature. Micro-gaps trap warm air in the winter and cool air in in the summer. Bamboo fabric does not cling to the skin the way other fabrics might, creating a more breathable feel. 

Therefore, choosing bamboo clothing for your kids to sleep in can put your fears to rest. Wearing Pika Layers will help them stay warm in the winter and keep cool in the summer.

Sustainable:

Bamboo is classified as one of the most versatile of all the natural resources available. Bamboo is a resilient plant that does not require fertilizers to boost its growth. This self sufficient crop is fast growing and demands very little water making it a drought-tolerant plant. 

This incredible and low maintenance plant also has the ability to release 35% more oxygen into the atmosphere than cotton or timber. That means that when bamboo is in the growing process, it improves the air quality around it.

We believe in selecting the highest quality materials and only work with fabric we would put on our own kids.
