When Alice set out to create Asquith 16 years ago she wanted to create a collection of organic yoga tops and organic yoga pants that were flattering, comfortable and made from luxuriously soft, eco-friendly fabrics organic cotton and bamboo.

Not only are these fabrics better for the environment but also they are better for you due their anti-bacterial, sweat wicking and super soft properties.

Eco-Friendly plant bamboo

This season we have updated the weight of our bamboo yoga tops, so they feel even softer than before and they drape beautifully for a flattering, more comfortable fit.

We thought you would enjoy these fascinating facts about our favourite eco-friendly fabric bamboo:

  • Bamboo is a sustainable and environmentally low-impact fabric.
  • It grows faster and absorbs more carbon dioxide than hardwood trees and some have been recorded to grow up to 91cm (35in) a day!
  • There are over 1,000 different species of bamboo.
  • Bamboo is naturally anti-bacterial, breathable and wicks away it is particularly good for sensitive skin.
  • It moulds to the body, providing excellent stretch capabilities.
  • The flowers of bamboo are rarely seen and can take 65 – 120 years to bloom.
  • Bamboo does not need fertilisers to grow as the discarded leaves of the plant provide all the nutrients needed.
  • The plant has a wide and strong root system so it’s often planted in areas of flooding and erosion.
  • Bamboo has a stronger structure than steel, which is why it is used in building projects.
  • Bamboo is actually a type of grass.
  • Bamboo was the only plant to survive the radiation of the bombing of Hiroshima.
