Bamboo fabric is analogous to the softness of silk. Since the fibres are without chemical treatment, they're naturally smoother and rounder with no sharp spurs to irritate the skin, making bamboo fabric hypoallergenic and perfect for those that experience allergic reactions to other natural fibres like wool or hemp. Thereon same note, bamboo is additionally antibacterial and anti fungal. This is often because bamboo possesses an anti-bacteria and bacteriostatic bio-agent called "Bamboo Kun", allowing it to naturally flourish and grow within the wild without the utilization of pesticides or fertilizers. This beneficial quality of the plant remains in its textile form, killing all bacteria keeping the wearer feeling fresher and odour free for extended, making the garment healthier and more hygienic.
As bamboo fabric is gaining popularity in the fashion industry, there will naturally be an increase in growth and demand for more bamboo plants. This could ultimately lead to an increased amount of photosynthesis and result in another alternative to combating greenhouse gases. India’s textiles sector is one of the oldest industries in Indian economy dating back several centuries. India’s textile and apparel exports stood at US$ 38.70 billion in FY19 and is expected to increase to US$ 82.00 billion by 2021 from US$ 22.95 billion in FY20 (up to November 2019).
The Indian textiles industry is extremely varied, with the hand-spun and hand-woven textiles sectors at one end of the spectrum, while the capital-intensive sophisticated mills sector at the opposite end of the spectrum. The decentralized power looms/ hosiery and knitting sector form the most important component of the textiles sector. The close linkage of the textile industry to agriculture (for raw materials such as cotton) and therefore the ancient culture and traditions of the country in terms of textiles make the Indian textiles sector unique as compared to the industries of other countries. The Indian textile industry has the capacity to provide a wide type of products suitable to different market segments, both within India and across the world.
