“In the Giant Bamboo we can see a solid bridge that will bring Italian agriculture into the future”

The Giant Bamboo Onlymoso is a grass and grows very quickly – almost 1 mt a day – and can produce almost 20 times more wood than an equal number of trees of other type. It can be used both as a finishing material and as a structure. According to several studies, Bamboo is a very strong and resistant construction material, flexible, adaptable, of different aesthetic qualities and also eco-sustainable; also in case of earthquakes it proves very valid because it has excellent flexibility properties. Thanks to its rapid growth, it does not have a high cost although it is a type of valuable wood.

Second point but not for importance the positive environmental impact that characterizes the bamboo – in fact in addition to purifying the air generating oxygen (more than 35% compared to other trees) does not create pollution because its cultivation does not require fertilizers neither chemical nor natural (respecting the soil) and not even pesticide treatments because it is already of its nature equipped with antifungal substances and pesticides.

Textile Yarn

Bamboo fiber is naturally hypoallergenic and antifungal and possesses bamboo-kun, a very strong antibacterial agent. Thanks to its smooth and round texture on the skin remains fresh and delicate, has a natural shine both to the touch and to the eye and protects from UV rays.

It is mainly used for clothing, intimate garments, newborns, swimsuits, bathrobes and towels and in sanitary materials as well as interior and exterior furniture.

The bamboo processing process consists in the transformation of the wood parts into textile fiber by crushing and the most used methods are mainly two:

– through natural enzymes similar to those used for the processing of hemp and cotton which produce a rigid canvas-like fabric with a more evident texture used mainly for linen, shirts and trousers;

– by a substance, “N-methylampholine-N-oxide-monohydrate”, non-toxic from which a bleached cellulose fibre is obtained, in this process the material obtained is used to 99.5% in other processes creating a minimum waste. Also the latter is a totally eco-sustainable and ecological method and from here you get bamboo viscose that is softer to the touch.
