Bamboo is a true wonder plant, in addition to not requiring pesticides or fertiliser to grow, it reaches its mature harvested height in 3 to 5 years (versus 10-20 years for most softwoods).Bamboo generates up to 35% more oxygen than hardwood trees, and absorbs four times as much carbon as hardwood.

Here at Chilli Waters we are passionate about our bamboo, and here are some of the things we have learnt...
BAMBOO can detoxify wastewater (due to its high nitrogen consumption) and improve soil quality. BAMBOO comes from nature and is returned to nature in a smooth natural cycle. It has been grown and husbanded for thousands of years and will continue to be husbanded for many more thousand years without environmental degradation. This is what is meant by complete sustainability.
BAMBOO yarns and textiles are produced without the use of dangerous toxic chemicals and no polluting residues remain in the cloth when it finally wears out and is discarded. It is beautiful to the touch. The fibre is softer than cotton, feels similar to silk or cashmere and has a beautiful sheen. BAMBOO is anti-bacterial even after 50 washes, Come and visit our gift shop today.
BAMBOO has natural “wicking” properties meaning that it absorbs and evaporates moisture very quickly.
A non-toxic and natural cellulose fibre,
BAMBOO is 100% biodegradable and the decomposition process does not cause any pollution to the environment. Come and visit our gift shop today.
