I don’t know how familiar you are with bamboo baby clothes, but I’ve recently learned that the world of bamboo clothing is apparently a lot more than just apparel - it’s a lifestyle. We’re talking exclusive bamboo clothing groups on social media, stalking popular brands to be the first to learn about new product launches and copping VIP brand memberships to access exclusive new prints before they drop - the whole shebang.
Wherever you sit on the scale of bamboo fandom, it’s easy to see why people love it. Bamboo viscose is buttery-soft, stretchy, naturally hypoallergenic, and the perfect fabric for your baby’s sensitive skin. Because it’s so breathable, it stays around 3 degrees cooler than cotton, making your baby snuggle sessions a slightly less sweaty affair for all involved. Any fabric that keeps you dry, cool and comfortable is pretty much a no brainer, so it’s no wonder why many companies have started making bamboo apparel for the big people in your family, too (score!)
Wondering what the best bamboo brands out there are? Don’t sweat it (a little bamboo humor for you there). Here are the best places to find bamboo baby clothes.
1. Kyte Baby
Kyte Baby is one of the OGs in the bamboo fabric game. Their products tend to ride a bit on the pricier side because they source the highest quality bamboo and make their bamboo rayon fabric with 97% bamboo, which is 2% higher than the industry standard. Join their Kyte Club on Facebook to meet other Kyte Baby fans, get insider access and sneak peeks on prints and promotions, and get first dibs on model calls. Sign up for their Frequent Flyer rewards to get sweet deals on future purchases and access to special offers.
