Why Bamboo Fabric?

Why Bamboo Fabric?

When it comes to your baby, you want the best and safest to put on their delicate skin. At Quinn St, it begins with gentle, buttery, bamboo fabric. But why is bamboo fabric the best for your baby? 

For centuries, bamboo has been used as one of the most tried and true resources. Not only is it a leader in eco-friendly fabric solutions, but it has real benefits that go the distance for your baby. 

Bamboo fabric is buttery soft. 

There is a reason our knotted sleepers and stretchy swaddles are a must-have for moms packing a bag for the hospital and are the perfect baby shower gift. From day one, they are gentle enough to comfort your baby’s skin and help them smoothly transition to this new world. 

Bamboo has a texture that is similar to a combination of cashmere and silk and is softer than cotton. While it takes time to help your baby learn how to sleep through the night, bamboo fabric can comfort your baby and allow them to feel safe and secure. 

Bamboo fabric is also antistatic so it flows gently over your baby’s skin without clinging. Bamboo’s flowy material makes our baby gowns and swaddles the perfect accessory for your baby boy or girl. 

Bamboo fabric is naturally hypoallergenic. 

For a baby with sensitive and delicate skin, bamboo fabric is especially gentle and prevents allergic reactions often caused by other fabrics. Many babies experience dry skin or eczema in the first year and itchy or uncomfortable fabric can aggravate the skin and worsen symptoms. 

Bamboo absorbs 50% more moisture than cotton. This is important because it means the fabric will wick away excess moisture from your baby’s skin and keep them comfortable throughout the night. Many rashes and skin irritants stem from fabric that clings to the skin and doesn’t breathe. 

Bamboo fabric is thermal-regulating.  

One of the most challenging aspects of being a new mom is knowing how to dress your baby at night and the right temperature to keep him or her comfortable. 

As a thermal regulator, bamboo cloth will insulate heat when it is cold outside and keep your baby cool when it is hot. This will help your baby to stay a few degrees warmer in cold winter months and cooler in hot summer months. Bamboo fabric keeps your baby drier, cooler, and more comfortable

Bamboo fabric is antibacterial. 

Bamboo resists odor and fights against germs.  During those middle-of-the-night blowouts, an antibacterial fabric is crucial to help protect your baby’s delicate skin. 

Bamboo contains a naturally occurring bio-agent called “bamboo kun,” this allows the plant to grow in abundance without the use of pesticides. Even after breaking down the bamboo plant into fabric, bamboo still retains its antimicrobial qualities. 

Bacteria can grow quickly in cotton and other fabrics. This can cause bad smells and early fabric degeneration. Even after multiple washings, bamboo fabric has been found to kill 70% of bacteria after 24 hours of exposure. 

When it comes to your baby…. 

Buying everything you need for your baby can be overwhelming. Quinn St products are made with your baby in mind, with the softest combination of 95% bamboo fabric and 5% spandex. 

Our knotted gowns, two-piece sets, rompers, and swaddles were made to last. Bamboo’s resiliency makes our gowns the perfect asset for the inevitable spit-ups, blowouts, and constant washings of parenthood.
