Our bamboo apparel is purposefully long cut in style, with longer arm and body length than is usual for such garments. Bamboo fabric does shrink in length, which our designs cater for. Our garments are not pre-washed so you will experience intended fit after first washing. Hot tumble drying will also cause our garments to temporally take on shrinkage. We recommend clothes line drying whenever possible for garment consistency and environmental conservation. Bamboo is best washed on a normal cycle in cold water and tumble dried on low heat if necessary. Washing bamboo fabric in hot water increases the likelihood of pilling.
