How Cozy Earth Bamboo Sheets Are Made

Bamboo is known for being one of the toughest plants in existence. Bamboo fabric, on the other hand, is known for being one of the softest materials for clothing and bedding out there. So, the question is, how does it turn from a hard plant into soft fabric?

The first step is harvesting the bamboo. This used to not be a friendly process to the environment, but in recent years, it has been fine-tuned and adjusted to be a process beneficial to manufacturers and the earth. Bamboo can grow in locations that aren’t suitable for trees or other crops, and it grows quickly without having to be uprooted, meaning that it replaces itself!

Once the bamboo has been harvested, Cozy Earth uses a sodium-based process instead of a chemical one to shave down the bamboo into a soft fiber, which is then made into a pulp through enzymatic hydrolysis. This pulp is dried and converted into threads that will eventually make up the sheets.

Finally, the threads are woven into sheets. Bamboo threads are longer than the threads of cotton and other fabrics, so they have a much smoother finish and don’t have threads start or end in the middle of a sheet. This makes bamboo sheets incredibly soft without the roughness often associated with sheets like cotton.

This only scratches the surface of the bamboo bedding process. For more information about Cozy Earth and our process for making sheets, check out our About Page!
