Bamboo Cotton Silk
A Hybrid Garment.
Bamboo and Cotton are both cellulosic fibres which makes our garments inherently cool and comfortable to wear against the skin. Silk on the other hand retains heat. The coolness of Bamboo and Cotton, combined with the heat retention of Silk creates a hybrid garment, working in coordination to regulate your body in both departments. The hybrid combination of Bamboo, Cotton, and Silk create a lightweight garment with significant drape and minimalist lustre.
Bamboo is a highly respected and sustainable fibre. It is produced on farmed plantations which protect natural habitats by leaving them undisturbed. Bamboo has a quick germination period and uses little water. It grows naturally in most parts of the world as a dense thicket that crowds out weeds. Bamboo requires little to no use of pesticides, which means less chemical harm to the environment and to the workers.
Cotton is the most widely used natural fibre cloth in clothing today. Another one of natures high performance fabrics with strength, breathability and hypoallergenic qualities, cotton is also the perfect fibre for those with sensitive skin.
At Wild South we source only high quality, fine cotton fabrics for our garments
According to Chinese legend, silk culture began in 2640 B.C when Empress Hsi Ling Shi became interested in silk worms and learned how to reel the silk and weave it into fabric. Through her efforts, China developed a silk industry and a 3000 year monopoly.
Silk fibre is the only continuous natural filament fibre which is what makes it so soft and silky.
