Nandina Heavenly Bamboo Bath Linens
Naturally soft and luxurious, these towels are more absorbent than ordinary cotton towels. Hypoallergenic, anti-microbial, mold and mildew resistant. As soft as cashmere but naturally strong and durable, Heavenly Bamboo towels will stand the test of time, wash after wash. (We can attest to this - we've been using and loving the same set every day for over 12 years!)
The bamboo is plantation grown, and can be ready to harvest every two-three years. In addition to bamboo, organic cotton is used. This is particularly important since conventionally grown cotton utilizes an estimated 25% of all insecticide used globally. These substances are absorbed not only by the cotton plant, but also by the seeds, soil, air, water and eventually us. Of equal importance is that the manufacturing process does not negatively impact our environment.
Not all bamboo is created equally! Nandina towels are loomed in a factory powered by the wind. Only natural or low-impact dyes are used to produce the lovely color ranges and the water that comes out of the dye house is clear, clean and ready to use again. These towels have been certified free of harmful substances, meeting or exceeding the highest standards established by Oeko-Tex, the world leader in textile testing for human ecology.
