EcoTec Bamboo Charcoal Micro Poly
Bamboo is a renewable resource. A bamboo forest can grow in 4-5 years. An average tree forest takes up to 60 years to grow. In Jhushan, Taiwan, yearly monsoons increase the amount of moisture absorbing micro pores in the bamboo grown there. This makes Moso bamboo one of the most absorbent types of bamboo on Earth. Moso bamboo is then heated and dried at 800 degrees Celsius until it becomes charcoal The charcoal is then ground into a fine ash The bamboo ash is infused into the liquid polyester, then spun into yarn. By using “second burn” or white ash, yarns can be spun in a clean white color which can produce clean and bright fabrics
