Embracing nature: the story behind our bamboo outdoor clothing collection

We know the call for sustainability grows louder each day when outdoor enthusiasts are seeking eco-friendly alternatives to their gear and apparel. At kora we are excited to share the compelling reasons behind our decision to embrace this wonder fibre.

1. Eco-friendly fabric

Bamboo fabric is often hailed as one of the most eco-friendly choices in the textile industry. The bamboo plant grows rapidly without the need for harmful pesticides or excessive water. Unlike conventional cotton, which can be a resource-intensive crop, bamboo's cultivation leaves a significantly smaller ecological footprint. By choosing bamboo outdoor clothing, you are supporting sustainable and responsible fashion.

In hot weather it keeps you cool and in colder conditions it provides insulation.

2. Breathable and moisture-wicking

Outdoor lovers understand the importance of staying comfortable in all weather conditions. Bamboo fabric's natural properties make it an excellent choice for outdoor clothing. It is highly breathable, allowing for efficient moisture-wicking, which means it keeps you dry and comfortable during physical activities. Whether you're hiking, biking, or simply enjoying a day in the wilderness, our bamboo clothing will help you stay cool and fresh.

3. Thermoregulation

One of the unique qualities of bamboo fabric is its ability to adapt to your body's temperature. In hot weather it keeps you cool and in colder conditions it provides insulation, making it a versatile choice for outdoor adventures year-round. Say goodbye to the discomfort of overheating or feeling too cold.

4. Durability and longevity

Outdoor gear needs to be tough, and bamboo clothing rises to the challenge. Bamboo fibres are naturally strong and durable, making them perfect for outdoor activities that put your clothing to the test. Our bamboo outdoor clothing is designed to withstand the rigors of the great outdoors, ensuring that your gear will last for many adventures to come.

5. UV protection

Spending time outdoors exposes you to the sun's harmful UV rays. Bamboo fabric has a natural UV protection factor, which means it helps shield your skin from the sun's harmful effects. With our UPF-50+ bamboo outdoor clothing, you can enjoy your outdoor activities while minimising the risks associated with prolonged sun exposure.

6. Biodegradable and low impact

Bamboo clothing is biodegradable, meaning it breaks down naturally over time and doesn't contribute to the growing problem of textile waste. Additionally, bamboo farming has a low environmental impact, as it requires less water and fewer chemicals compared to many other textiles.

7. Comfort and style

Our Bamboo collection combines functionality with style. We've worked hard to create a collection that not only performs exceptionally well but also looks great. From hiking tops to bamboo-bottoms, you'll find comfort and style seamlessly blended in our outdoor apparel.
