Kusala Organics’ Viscose bamboo towel sets are a luxurious addition to your bathroom. There is nothing more luxurious than wrapping yourself in ultimate softness after a shower or bath.
Our range of towels includes washcloths, hand towels, bath towels and bath sheets that are composed of a blend of 70% viscose bamboo and 30% organic cotton. Organic cotton is produced from non-genetically modified seeds and grown without the use of synthetic pesticides, herbicides, or fertilizers. The cotton plantations are certified by organizations such as the National Organic Program within the United States Department of Agriculture.
The viscose bamboo is produced using a “closed loop” technique, which 90 to 95% of all chemicals are recycled through a close loop production process. This results in less environmental waste and makes the working environment safer for employees. This specific viscose bamboo is certified by Oeko-Tex, an internationally recognized standard for organic cloth and textiles. Oeko-Tex ensures that all criteria is met for organic certification and requires regular product evaluation to ensure the company is consistently compliant with organic methods.
Bamboo plants are naturally resilient to pests and do not require fertilizer due to rapid growth. Bamboo is considered the fastest growing woody plant in the world. It is a self-replenishing plant with new shots constantly replacing old shoots, growing approximately 1 meter a day. Bamboo can survive in extreme conditions such as droughts and floods; therefore much less resources and labor are needed to grow bamboo over other plants. Bamboo also releases large quantities of oxygen into the atmosphere, converting much more CO2 to O2 than trees.
The 70% percentage of viscose bamboo in the bamboo towel sets has several advantages over towels that are 100% cotton.
