Wait! What? Activated Bamboo Charcoal Bedding?

2019 Feb 12th

It may conjure up fantastical visions of Mary Poppins singing on the rooftops with her chimney-sweeping friends, but “activated bamboo charcoal” is a real thing! For those who love our Aruba Bamboo-Blend sheeting, we have made a new technical sheeting line with the extra added benefits of bamboo charcoal.

Our Spring 2019 lineup includes sheets sets and the Theo Bedding Collection by Home Republic – that are featured in this new fabric technology.

The fabric – bamboo rayon blended with charcoal – is made from sustainably grown bamboo, heated to 800°C to become bamboo charcoal, and processed into ultra-fine nano particles, which are embedded into yarn and woven into fabric. The result is a silky soft, extremely durable fabric with excellent anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, and temperature regulating properties.

HISTORY:

Activated Charcoal has had a multitude of uses across the ages, going as far back as 3750 BC when the Egyptians first used it for smelting ores and creating bronze. In 400 BC the Ancient Hindus and Phoenicians discovered the antiseptic properties of Activated Charcoal and began using it to purify their water. A well-known practice for any long sea voyage was to store water in barrels that had been charred. Today there are many practical applications for Activated Charcoal, it can be found in soap and cosmetics, air filters, water purification and in a range of textiles including our new line of Bamboo Charcoal sheets!
