Cariloha Bamboo Review
By Mommy’s Craft Obsession
Cariloha Bamboo is an earth-friendly versatile resource that’s as strong as steel, yet soft as silk. It’s sustainable, breathable, and naturally hypoallergenic. Apparel made from their Cariloha bamboo even keeps you 3 degrees cooler than cotton, as it actually wicks moisture away from your body. It also acts as a natural insulator, keeping you cool in the summer and warm in the winter.
Cariloha is a combination of the Caribbean style and Hawaiian aloha, which is what inspired the company. The islands are always hot and humid, and everyone wants to wear something cool and refreshing, they began developing fabrics that would best fit their needs, hitting it off with a proprietary blend of bamboo, a unique alternative that would quench Cariloha’s thirst for the islands. Cariloha is the only multi-store retailer in the world to provide an entire store experience that’s completely merchandised with products made of bamboo.
I couldn’t wait to try out Cariloha’s bamboo products, they looked so soft and luxurious I knew I would love them. They sent me the Bamboo Bath Robe and a set of Bath Towels to review.
The set of bath towels comes with a Bath Towel (76 x 142 cm / 30 x 56 in), Hand Towel (41 x 76 cm / 16 x 30 in), and a Washcloth (33 x 33 cm / 13 x 13 in). They are made with 50% Viscose from Bamboo/ 50% Turkish-combed cotton. I would have to say the bath towels are the softest towels I have ever felt. When I used it for the first time I was amazed how it actually seemed to just suck up the water leaving me drier then the cotton towels I am used to. The towels are nice and thick, they feel very well made, and seem like they will last a very long time, making them well worth the price.
The Bamboo Bath Robe is made of 70% Viscose from Bamboo / 30% Organic Cotton. It has a front tie closure, side-seam pockets, a cozy-shawl collar, and turn-back cuffs. Bamboo fibers naturally wick away moisture from your skin, making it a hypoallergenic, and fast-drying fabric. It’s made from Cariloha’s absorbent, biodegradable, sustainable and silky soft bamboo. I love this robe it is very luxurious and very comfortable. While it’s not quite as soft as the towels are, and is slightly heavier than I expected it to be, it still feels very nice on. Since bamboo is 3 degrees cooler then cotton I noticed I don’t get overly warm in it, it seems to keep me just warm enough to stay comfortable.
I couldn’t be happier with the products I received from Cariloha. I would recommend for you to give them a try. Bamboo is soft, cool, hypoallergenic, antibacterial, and is one of the most eco-friendly resources on the planet. They have an entire line of bamboo products, including apparel, bedding, bath goods, accessories, fitness wear, handbags and more.
