9 Benefits of Choosing Bamboo Beddingbamboo-bedding-eco-friendly


Looking for high-quality bed linen with a super soft texture? Bamboo bedding is the perfect solution.  It contains all the qualities you love about cotton but with drastically less impact on the environment.


The quality of your bedding has links to the quality of your sleep. Plus, the fabric contributes to a range of factors, such as how hot you feel and whether the material absorbs perspiration.

Bamboo fabric has been used in a variety of ways for many years. However, recent processes have meant that bamboo fabric can now be produced more easily using less chemicals.

As shoppers look for ways to make more conscious purchases, bamboo is a natural and sustainable alternative to synthetic materials.

Choosing a bamboo bedding to complement your bedroom interior has many benefits. Just keep reading to learn more.


The benefits of bamboo bedding


There are several benefits of choosing bamboo bed linen, some for the planet and some for you.  These include:


1. Temperature regulation

Bamboo bed linen naturally regulates your bed temperature keeping you cool and dry in warm weather and warmer on colder nights. The fabric is great in helping you get a more comfortable and restful night’s sleep on hot nights. Similarly, in winter, bamboo bedding will keep you cosy thanks to its naturally insulative properties.


2. Breathable fabricbamboo-as-soft-as-cotton-compare

The composition of bamboo fabric allows for airflow while you sleep, just like high thread count cotton sheets. In addition, the micro gaps in the bamboo material provide ventilation, preventing hot air from building up under the duvet.


3. Moisture-wicking properties

It’s natural for the body to sweat at night. With that in mind, another benefit of bamboo bedding is its moisture-wicking properties. This means moisture is pulled away from the body and quickly absorbed into the material’s surface. But, unlike other fibres that become saturated, bamboo does not. This ensures your sheets stay fresh and dry for longer.


4. Allergy-friendly material

Bamboo bedding is a top choice for allergy sufferers. This is due to its antimicrobial properties. Most bamboo duvet sets are resistant to common allergy irritants such as mould, bacteria, mites and fungus.


5. Durable and soft

The fibres in bamboo material are different to others, such as cotton. They comprise long, rounded fibres, which makes the material durable and less likely to tear or bobble. This fabric is also super soft and gentle on the skin. 


6. Sustainablebamboo-is-much-more-planet-friendly-than-cotton

The process of creating bamboo bed linen starts with harvesting bamboo grass. This is one of the fastest-growing plants in the world, renewing naturally from the roots without needing to be replanted. Plus, due to its natural antifungal and antibacterial properties, farmers don’t need to use harmful pesticides during the growth stage.


7. Affordable

Choosing high-quality bedding doesn’t mean you have to spend a small fortune to get the best options. Bamboo duvet covers are perfect examples of this. This fabric has previously been likened to silk as it has a satin-like texture and is super soft to the touch.


8. Better for the Planet

Bamboo plantations can absorb large amounts of CO2 and produce 30% more Oxygen than similar sized forests and trees.  Unlike cotton bamboo is naturally fast growing and is kinder to the soil so no fertisers are needed.  It can be cut when farmed rather than the whole plant removed making farming it much more efficient.


Bamboo is fast becoming one of the most popular fabrics being used across several industries.  All these qualities plus odour apsorbtion and resistance to discolouration and staining make it much more attractive than similar fabrics. Plus, its long-lasting durability means that you won’t need to switch up your bedding every few months.


9. Less Water



Cotton production uses a massive amount of water.  It takes 8000 litres of water to produce a single kilogram of cotton.  Bamboo plant production uses 30% less than this and because bamboo can grow in many different environments it can be farmed in areas of the world with higher natural rainfall, reducing transport costs.









Manufacturing in the UK, reducing transport costs and waste.


At Victoria Linen, we understand that shopping for eco-friendly bedding options is a top priority for many. We are always looking at ways to reduce our impact on the planet.

So we source the finest fabrics, including 100% cotton, linen and bamboo, and cut and sew everything in our UK factory to minimise waste. We have recently introduced all paper packaging and drastically reduced our use of plastics when making our products.


Our latest initiative looks to improve fabric recycling and reduce waste even further. This recycling drive will take our off-cuts in the manufacturing process (the waste we produce when making bedding) and offer them for use in patchwork quilting and other sewing projects. These off-cuts are typically 15-inch cotton squares, so they are ideal for a range of different sewing and crafting designs.


Alongside this, we are also giving away fabric pattern books that we no longer use. These are available free to schools, colleges and individuals for local pick up. You can also find them on eBay for a small admin fee.


If you would like more information about our new fabric recycling drive or want to get your hands on one of our pattern books, please don't hesitate to get in touch. You can call us on 01706 220020 or email info@victorialinen.co.uk to find out more.
