Before you become a parent, you never know the kind of love you are capable of: that protective, always giving, kind of love that isn’t selfish. As soon as the bundle of joy comes in your life, you feel all the love you can give, and try to find whatever it is to make life better for this little person depending on you.
One of the wise decisions you can make, affecting the well-being, is shopping for kids bamboo clothing, from underwear to shirts, pants, pjs and even socks. Yes, socks.
Socks are critical for foot protection (designed to act as a barrier against infection) and comfort as well. Hence, what your kid’s socks are made of does matter. Cotton allows the foot to breathe, however, because bamboo as a material is very breathable, it’s far better at wicking moisture away from the skin than cotton. Moreover, unlike socks made of synthetic material, kids bamboo socks have thermo-regulating properties, meaning your kid’s feet will stay cool in the heat and warm on colder days. In other words, it’s the fabric that’s ideal for all seasons, and temperatures!
But what is it that makes bamboo the topic of conversation of everyone opting for organic fabrics? It all has to do with its outstanding properties and the processes bamboo goes through to be turned into a fabric. As a resilient plant, it doesn’t require the chemicals to ensure optimal growth, it can protect itself, which further makes the bamboo fabric antibacterial thanks to its antimicrobial compound called bamboo kun.
Furthermore, it can absorb moisture, meaning it doesn’t make for the bacteria-ideal conditions. Its luxury softness mustn’t be excluded either, as it’s what makes it perfect for the delicate, sensitive skin of babies and kids, as it doesn’t irritate.
Once you acquire kids bamboo socks and start reaping these benefits of bamboo fibres, you can expect to start buying more bamboo-based products, like bedding for the bedroom, towels and bathrobes for the bathroom, and clothing for yourself and your family. But of course, the first thing you should be aware of when carrying out this shopping is to look for labels, and only buy actual organic, according to the Global Organic Textile Standards (GOTS).
And that’s how organic, sustainable choices start taking over your lifestyle; the more you have of them in your life, the more you wish to incorporate. Don’t wait up, and join up the bamboo trend!
