Bamboo is a fast-growing plant, between 5 and 20 cm. up to date. Some species can grow even 90 or 100 cm. every day. When harvested, only the stem is collected, leaving the root intact, so that its rapid growth is favored. It is one of the plants that captures the most CO2 on the planet and does not need water or pesticides for its growth. For this reason, mosquito nets made of bamboo fiber are ecological, biodegradable and sustainable, beating cotton that does require large amounts of water to make fabrics and pesticides to favor its development given the current demand.
Bamboo mosquito nets ventilate very well and are excellent heat regulators so they are cool in summer and warm in winter. They can absorb up to 60% more moisture than cotton so that the fabric stays dry and cooler for longer. Another important feature of bamboo fiber is that its structure is rounder and smoother, offering less resistance and creating softer threads. Thus, the fabric feels much softer to the touch and does not wrinkle.
