At ColieCo Lingerie we've been working with bamboo fabrics for several years.
And we're in love with this material! Not only is it lightweight, super soft, breathable and hypoallergenic, but it's also certifiably sustainable.
Bamboo fabrics have many environmental benefits over cotton, with bamboo producing a high-density, high-yield crop, capturing much higher amounts of CO2 than even young forests, minimising soil erosion, and requiring no irrigation, pesticides or fertilisers.
And these inherent eco-credentials of bamboo are part of the reason why we're so excited to be introducing our new ARAYA mini collection, featuring a brand new bamboo fabric!
Organic bamboo silk
Bamboo silk enjoys the same inherent environmental benefits as bamboo jersey. The two fabrics also share many of the same physical attributes: bamboo silk is lightweight, soft, kind to the skin, and highly breathable.
The big difference between the two is in the finish of the fabric, with bamboo silk presenting a super smooth and luxurious satin feel, and the characteristic lustrous sheen of traditional silk.
Like our organic bamboo jersey fabric, our bamboo silk is OEKO-TEX certified, leaving ColieCo customers comfortable in the knowledge that the material used to make their lingerie has been produced in accordance with the highest environmental standards.
Unlike some bamboo fabrics, our bamboo silk is manufactured in a closed-loop system, meaning that the strong chemicals used to prepare the bamboo fibre for spinning is retained and reused, rather than being released into the outside environment.
Not only does our organic bamboo silk tick the sustainability box, but it is also 100% vegan!
Introducing the ARAYA collection
The ARAYA demi-cup bra is wire-free to provide you with maximum comfort. It features full wings and light boning for added support, and eye-catching panels of sheer, stretchy black power mesh sustainably-sourced from fast fashion industry line ends.
The ARAYA mid-rise panties also sport sheer power mesh panels, and feature ColieCo's trademark adjustable rear satin strap for a perfectly snug fit!
Both pieces are available to purchase separately, or together in one of our beautifully packaged, gift-ready lingerie sets, available with or without the accompanying ARAYA leg harness.
As always, our ARAYA set is available in standard and custom sizes.
If you're unsure which size to order or you need a custom fit, drop us a message with your measurements and we'll set up a custom order for you.
We hope you're as excited about the new collection as we are! Let us know what you think - connect us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter to join the discussion!
