These days, there are so many different materials in our clothes, from the latest and greatest synthetic blends to simple, old-fashioned cotton. But one top choice might be missing from your closet—bamboo viscose. If you're wondering, "what is viscose from bamboo?" you're not alone. 

Let's explore this wonder fabric and why you'll never want to go back once you've experienced the magic for yourself.

What is Viscose From Bamboo?

Viscose from bamboo (also known as bamboo rayon) is a renewable fabric created by specially processing the pulp of the bamboo plant. First, bamboo stalks are harvested and soaked in solutions designed to break them down and make them soft and pliable. These cellulose fibers are then shredded and further treated until they're ready to be woven into fabric. This combination of natural and synthetic results in a material unlike anything you've ever felt.

Why Wear Viscose From Bamboo?

If you've never worn clothing made from bamboo, you may be wondering what all the fuss is about. But it's time to stop missing out. Here are a few major reasons why:

Superior softness

One of the biggest benefits of bamboo fabric is something you'll feel as soon as it touches your fingertips—buttery softness. This next-level softness provides unmatched comfort you’ll notice instantly.

Ultra-lightweight and breathable

Active folks know that no matter how good a piece of clothing looks, if it leaves you overheated and uncomfortable, it's going to spend more time on the shelf or in the closet than on your body. Fabric made from bamboo is naturally thermoregulating, which helps keep you cool in the summer and cozy when cold weather rolls in—a superior quality for staying comfortable in any climate.

Durable and long-lasting

Viscose from bamboo is among nature's toughest fibers, and this strength translates directly to your apparel. It won't rip, stretch, pill, or suffer other damage, whether you're hauling in a big catch or working around the house. And with Free Fly's high-quality construction, you can also be sure you'll enjoy your clothes made from bamboo for years to come.

Easy to care for

With material this soft, some might worry about taking care of viscose from bamboo clothes when wash time comes around. Luckily, they're machine-washable on the delicate cycle in cold water, saving you time and money. Better yet, viscose from bamboo can (and should) be air dried, where they'll be ready in no time, thanks to its quick-dry properties.

What Makes Free Fly's Bamboo Viscose Unique?

Critics have accused viscose from bamboo of not being as eco-conscious as it seems due to harmful farming or labor practices by some bamboo producers. While this may, unfortunately, be true for some companies, we produce our clothing with a commitment to people and the planet at the forefront.

Our organic bamboo is grown on regenerative farmland certified by the Forest Stewardship Council and made without harmful pesticides or fertilizers. Instead of harsh chemicals, we use Sodium Hydroxide, a naturally derived substance often used in food production to process the bamboo into viscose, which is then spun into fabric. So, if you're looking for the perfect material for active folks who want to feel as good as they look, viscose from bamboo is what you've been searching for.
