Textiles date back to thousands of years BC, however the first man made fiber appeared just a little over 100 years ago in 1910. That fiber was Rayon, the most common version of it being Viscose, and is often described as man made silk.
Bamboo is one of the fastest growing plants on earth and it does not require pesticides to thrive. This makes it one of the most sustainable natural materials whose real potential is just now being uncovered.
A marriage of Bamboo fibers and the technology to make Rayon results in some excellent new materials. Fabric Images’ Performance Jersey is made up of 70% Viscose from Bamboo! It also contains 20% Organic Cotton…another environmental plus. The material is soft and stretchy, reminding you of your favorite T-Shirt. Why not use this material to bring the same feeling in your home or office?
