Why We Use Bamboo Instead of Silk for Your Pyjamas

The quest for a perfect night's sleep often begins with what you wear. Whilst silk has historically been the epitome of luxury sleepwear, modern eco-conscious consumers, especially here in Australia, are seeking greener pastures. Enter bamboo—a versatile, sustainable alternative that's changing the way we think about cosy nightwear.

For our discerning customers—a mix of those who live green and value comfort, to the everyday Australian women seeking that luxurious feel without the luxurious price tag—bamboo pyjamas have become the gold standard of sustainable sleepwear. Here are the compelling reasons why bamboo trumps silk and why our bamboo PJs should be your first choice for slumber

Renewable and Eco-Friendly

Bamboo is an incredibly renewable resource. It grows at a rapid rate, some species able to shoot up almost a metre in just 24 hours! Unlike silk, which requires silkworms and a sizeable environmental investment for their feed and habitat, bamboo is a low-maintenance crop that requires no fertilizer and little water

Unbelievable Comfort

Bamboo fabric feels akin to silk—soft, breathable, and luxuriously comfortable—making it an excellent choice for sleepwear. It naturally provides ventilation, wicks away moisture, and can keep you warm in the winter and cool in the summer—an all-season companion

Hypoallergenic and Gentle on Skin

For those with sensitive skin, bamboo is hypoallergenic and non-irritating. The fibres in bamboo are smoother and rounder, making bamboo PJs gentle and soft, which can be beneficial for women with allergies or skin conditions

Antibacterial and Odor Resistant

Bamboo naturally possesses anti-bacterial and odor-resistant properties. Its fibres have been touted for their ability to repel odours and bacteria, ensuring that you're not just comfortable, but also clean and fresh throughout the night.

Easy Care and Durable

Bamboo sleepwear is not only incredibly durable but also easy to care for. Unlike the delicate nature of silk which often requires dry cleaning, bamboo fabric can be tossed into your regular wash, saving time and decreasing the impact on the environment.

Social Responsibility

Our commitment goes beyond providing cosy nightwear. By choosing bamboo, we're ensuring that our production processes align with principles of social responsibility. Bamboo’s sustainability ensures that what we wear aligns with impacts that are positive, not just for us, but globally.

Price Point

We understand the importance of affordability. While silk can be costly, bamboo offers a more cost-effective solution, providing similar benefits without breaking the bank. This allows for wider accessibility to quality sleepwear for more Australian women.

While silk might have set the standard for centuries, bamboo is clearly cutting-edge in the world of sleepwear. Its myriad of benefits – environmental, economical, and physiological – make it the obvious choice for women who are not only looking for comfort but who also care about their impact on the planet.

At Jade and May we proudly create pyjamas that we love to wear our but that we also love to create for our beautiful customer.  And to us - bamboo PJs are a no-brainer.  Not just because they're a sustainable choice, but because we believe the future of luxury sleepwear lies in textiles that do more good while making you feel great.
