Bamboo fiber is an amazing sustainable material with a wide range of applications. Whomever learns about the bamboo fabric properties usually amazed at why they didn’t know about them sooner. The bamboo plant originated in Asia where it has been used for centuries for textiles, medicine, paper, construction and gardening. In addition to its multiple uses, bamboo is also a proliferous grower and is considered a weed by many farmers and gardeners. This is a very good sign for cultivation, since usually the plant varieties that need the most care have the biggest impact on the environment. Thanks to contemporary technologies, bamboo pulp can be processed into fibers that are later used to create yarn and fabrics.


How bamboo fabric is made:

Check this short video of how it’s actually made. Bamboo cultivation is done sustainably and has the possibility to heal the land by using previously destroyed by overgrazing and generating the soil structure. Not only is bamboo sustainable, but bamboo fabric has superior properties.

Explained in details.

Planting bamboo

Bamboo is a perennial plant, which means it comes back every year without the need to disturb or till the soil undernear. You can plant it once and then harvest it for years to come. This makes it much less labor intensive to cultivate. Even better, it doesn’t need any chemicals or fertilizer to grow.

Harvest bamboo plants

We harvest the bamboo at the end of the rainy season and the beginning of the dry season, using a method is known as coppicing. This is a traditional method of woodland management that is used on plants that put out new shoots from their stump or roots if cut down.

Smash the plant to make bamboo pulp

Once the strips are ready, we use a pulper to put the chips of bamboo fiber. The temperature inside the pulper can be up to 145 centigrade so it heats up and softens the stems of the bamboo plant., and heat it with steam to get the bamboo pulp.

Soak the fibers

We soak the bamboo pulp in a highly caustic substance such as lye in order to isolate and extract the cellulose from the chips and then transform this material into sheets. This is the same substance that is used to make eco-friendly soaps.

Spin it into bamboo yarn

After soaking, it’s important to let the material dry so that it will be easier to separate and spin the fiber into threads which are then spun into bamboo fiber yarns. The main thing about bamboo yarns is that they have a natural elasticity, which can be enhanced by blending with a bit of recycled fabric.

Weave into bamboo fabric

With the weaving method of textile production, manufacturers turn yarns or threads into fabric. There are several methods to choose from, and they affect the characteristics of the cloth, so we went with the method that promised us the tightest and highest quality thread count that leaves us with a light silky feeling.

We make antibacterial underwear!

We managed to create odor-free underwear that keeps feeling and smelling fresh all day long.

The antibacterial properties of bamboo are the primary reason why bamboo grows so aggressively. The structure of the bamboo plant cells has an inherent natural barricade against bacteria, which makes them resistant to all sorts of pests that tend to burden other plants. In fact, in Ancient Chinese medicine, fermented bamboo stalks have been known to be used as an antiseptic. 

Bacteria is what actually makes your underwear smell bad. When you have sweaty balls, the sweat seeps into the fabric of those cotton boxers you are currently wearing. The cotton absorbs and retains moisture, making it a great material for towels, but we aren’t wearing those all the time. When a significant amount of sweat from your swamp ass is absorbed by cotton underwear, it creates a warm and moist environment in which bacteria thrive. As the bacteria reproduce on your cotton boxer briefs, they begin to give off an odor.

Many guys shave their pubic hair only to discover that they still have smelly balls. The secret is to switch to bamboo fabric underwear, which unlike cotton, not only absorbs moisture but also causes it to evaporate.

We make moisture-wicking underwear!

Most of the amazing  bamboo fabric properties can be traced back to moisture-wicking. Moisture-wicking fabrics are modern technical fabrics that draw moisture away from the body by accelerating the process of evaporation through the porous composition of the fibers. Many specifically moisture-wicking fabrics on the market today are synthetic, however, bamboo is one of the few naturally-sourced fabrics with such properties.

Sweat-wicking material helps keep your body dry and cool, even during hot weather or while you’re sweating. While most natural fabrics are breathable and they let air pass through them freely, not all of them are the best at wicking moisture away from the skin. 

With that said, the best moisture-wicking fabric is one that is also breathable.  Bamboo fibers are naturally wicking, which makes bamboo the best fabric for underwear. It has a soft and cool texture and is ideal for wearing year-round. BUMBUK has combined the power of all these technologies to create the best breathable, moisture-wicking, anti-odor, sweatproof underwear on the market today.

We make insulating underwear!

It keeps you cooler in summer and warmer in winter

The moisture-wicking of the natural bamboo fibers also helps regulate the temperature. By drawing moisture away from the body, bamboo fabric cools so your package feels fresh all day long. This characteristic truly makes bamboo the best underwear for sweaty balls. It has a cooling effect on your luxury goods when it is too hot, but also the strongly spun viscose fabric has air pockets and insulates well from the cold as well. This is also why one of our bestselling items from the beginning is the thermal leggings of bamboo fabric. 

We make the softest underwear!

Bamboo is the future of luxury fabrics. Customers repeatedly say how our male boxer briefs feel like going commando. The fabric is almost weightless against the skin, and yet it has all these amazing bamboo fabric properties to go along with it.

We protect your package from harmful UV radiation!

Reducing the exposure time to sunlight, using sunscreens and protective clothes are the three ways of protection against the deleterious effects of UV radiation. Natural fibers like cotton, silk, and wool have a lower degree of UV ray absorption than synthetic fibers, however, bamboo viscose fiber is an exception. It is the only natural fiber with a high UV protection level.

We make hypoallergenic underwear!

Bamboo fabric does not cause any allergic reactions.

Overall, we make the most eco-friendly boxer briefs on the planet – not only are they environmentally sustainable and ethical, but they are most likely the most comfortable pair of boxers you will ever own.
