Novelty of eco-friendly bamboo garments lures consumers -- if the price is right, Baylor study shows
Date:9/13/2013

nt, bamboo is desirable because it dyes well, feels silkier than cotton and is less expensive than silk.

Producers of bamboo textiles maintain their products are antimicrobial, processed without chemicals, non-pollutant, biodegradable and recyclable.

Yoo noted that the majority nearly 84 percent of those participating in the study were female college students with an average age of 21. He said further research of a wider sample should be done.
