We take pride in making all Bamtech USA products in the USA. We believe the difference is distinguishable in quality and feel of our clothing.
When considering performance wear, Mother Nature brings a lot to the table. Mainstream fabrics such as polyester, spandex, and nylon are seen in the majority of the active-wear market. However, plant based fabric offers similar if not better performance features without the negative impact on the environment. Of all the plant based fibers there are, Tencel is perhaps our favorite.
A very newly developed fiber derived from Eucalyptus wood pulp, Tencel® is a cellulosic fiber which prevents the growth of bacteria. The strong fibers are excellent for wicking moisture away from your body. Despite being such a strong, durable material; Tencel® feels similar to silk on skin and doesn’t pill so it’s guaranteed to be a quality clothing item for a long time. Bamtech is the first Activewear brand to bring Tencel® to the Men’s sporting apparel market. Once you try it, you’ll understand why we call it our favorite.
We didn’t incorporate “Bam” into our business name for no reason. Bamboo is a naturally organic fiber which is known for its soft composition and antibacterial properties. By combining Bamboo with other performance fibers like spandex and lycra, you end up with an athletic garment that is guaranteed to make you feel and look your best. Baboo is also naturally organic and doesn’t require any pesticides for growth which give a significant eco advantage over fabrics such as cotton which require much more pesticides, irrigation, and land to grow.
Considered a newer fabric in today's textile industry, Hemp has actually been around for thousands of years and is considered one of the most durable and sustainable fabrics. Considered a very strong fabric by many, Hemp is also UV protective and holds its shape for months and years to come. Hemp is more sustainable than bamboo and cotton and requires no pesticides.
Organic Cotton is significantly more environmentally friendly than traditional cotton. Whereas regular cotton requires many pesticides to grow, organic cotton is grown in a way that doesn’t use any pesticides and much less water. Some will question “is it worth the additional cost of buying organic cotton?” The answer in our eyes is, absolutely. Organic cotton is softer, better insulating, and hypoallergenic.
WHY CHOOSE TREE BASED FABRICS:
Did you know that the Fashion industry is the second greatest Pollutant in the world behind Oil? The process of making shirts that aren’t made domestically / from synthetic materials overseas is terrible for the environment. We found the below video very informative when considering buying organic. Please give it a watch.
