Welcome To the World of Bamboo
This is Ora Bedding's NanoBAMBOO™
Sustainable | Organic | Certified
Ora Bedding's NanoBAMBOO™ is organic certified (ECOCERT) and sustainably sourced. Organic bamboo is not treated with harmful chemicals and our manufacturing process is recyclable as the organic ingredients and water can be reused again and again - forming a closed-loop system.
NanoBAMBOO™ is organic and chemical-free, ensuring you enjoy all the benefits of bamboo.
Ethical & Responsible Sourcing
We are committed to providing our customers with not only safe, quality, and reliable products, but also ethical production throughout the entire supply chain. Therefore, we work diligently to source responsibly and only partner with ethical suppliers that are socially and environmentally sensitive.
Bamboo vs Cotton
The differences between bamboo and cotton sheets can be quite vast. Although both are natural materials that tend to excel in temperature regulation and durability, some may argue that cotton is more breathable, and bamboo lasts longer.
However, when it comes to sustainability, growing bamboo is far more environmentally friendly in comparison to its cotton counterparts.
Why is bamboo eco-friendlier and more sustainable than cotton?
Bamboo is a crucial element in the balance of oxygen and carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. A grove of bamboo release 35% more oxygen than an equivalent stand of trees. Because of this, planting bamboo is a great way to reduce your carbon footprint and help fight global warming. A perfect selection for Going Green.
Unlike most tree species, harvesting does not kill the bamboo, so topsoil erosion and other adverse effects of tree-felling are kept to a minimum. Bamboo is also the world's fastest-growing plant, making it ultra-sustainable.
Bamboo also uses little water and needs only 90L of water to produce 1kg of fabric. On the other hand, cotton uses 10,000L of water to make 1 bedding set, and that's 13 years of drinking water!
This is the reason why we do not have any cotton-made products.
How does NanoBAMBOO™ feel?
OraSheets (NanoBAMBOO™) is softer than premium cotton, with a texture similar to a blend of cashmere and silk. It has the equivalent of 1600 in cotton thread count.
Is NanoBAMBOO™ breathable & moisture wicking?
Because of our nanocellulose manufacturing process, the cross-section of our NanoBAMBOO™ fiber is filled with various micro-gaps and micro-holes, it has much better moisture absorption and ventilation than regular cotton.
NanoBAMBOO™ moisture absorbency is twice that of cotton with extraordinary soil release.
What's so special about NanoBAMBOO™?
A unique characteristic of our NanoBAMBOO™ fibre is that it absorbs moisture due to micro-gaps and thus makes static electricity difficult to generate.
Our NanoBAMBOO™ does not contain free electrons and therefore it is antistatic, making it an excellent choice for diverse applications such as bed sheets, pillowcases, towels, and kitchen paper rolls.
Why is NanoBAMBOO™ so cooling?
And because of our unique micro-gap properties, it permits superior airflow thus making our fabric at least 3° cooler than cotton.
Is NanoBAMBOO™ hypoallergenic & anti-bacterial?
Regular cotton, in fact, is one of the dirtiest crop because they use a lot of pesticides in growing the plant. Some of these substances have been marked as hazardous to human health.
Additionally, bacteria will grow rapidly in cotton and in other wood pulp fibers, giving off an unpleasant smell.
NanoBAMBOO™ bamboo products are chemical-free, naturally hypoallergenic, deodorizing, and certified to be up to 99.9% antimicrobial.
Is NanoBAMBOO™ suitable for people with sensitive skin?
Bamboo sheets are considered a good option for those with sensitive skin as they are both breathable and absorbent, says board-certified dermatologist at MDCS Dermatology Dr Marisa Garshick. “Since they help to absorb excess moisture, they can help reduce any irritation that can be related to sweating,” she says. “Bamboo sheets often feel soft and smooth on the skin, which can be important for those with eczema or sensitive skin to prevent further irritation of the skin.
What about the chemicals used in making bamboo viscose?
Our closed-loop system captured & reuses the chemicals used in the manufacturing of NanoBAMBOO™ instead of releasing it into the environment. It can be reused over & over again, forming a closed-loop system.
While we may not be 100% waste reclaimable but steps by steps, we are doing our best effort towards a more sustainable textile future.
Are all bamboo fabrics made in the same?
Unfortunately, not all bamboo fabrics are made in the same way. Although, the technology for cleaner bamboo already exists. However, not all bamboo producers are willing to make the investment to upgrade their facilities.
Is NanoBAMBOO™ Panda-Friendly?
Our organic certified raw bamboo is of a different plant species eaten by pandas.
All sound good! But what are the limitations?
Our NanoBAMBOO™has moderate, dry strength and abrasion resistance. Like other cellulosic fibers, it will wrinkle. Also, it withstands ironing temperature slightly less than cotton. So, if you must have perfectly flat and straight bed sheets, then our NanoBAMBOO™ might not be the best option.
