Sustainable Production

Bamboo grows very fast (up to 1 meter a day) and reaches its maximum height (up to 35 m) in about eight to ten weeks. Generally, the cultivation of bamboo has no negative effects on the environment. Moreover, it continues to grow without  the need of new seeds. In comparison to other plants, Bamboo only needs a third of water and does not need an artificial irrigation system. Rain water suffices. Bamboo produces up to 35 percent more oxygen than other plantations and creates less carbon dioxide emissions. One hectare of Bamboo absorbs 62 tons of CO2 per year, while a forest only absorbs 15 tons in the same time span. Bamboo has a high production yield and a high density, which are both important facts as the cultivated soil becomes scarcer year after year due to constant increases in population growth. A hectare of Bamboo generates 60 tons of raw material, a forest only 20 tons. Traditional cotton only produces 2 tons of raw material. Moreover, Bamboo grows in regions that are not suitable for the cultivation of other crops. Which means that Bamboo does not stand in the way of food plantations. The main bamboo-producer countries are situated in Asia.

We have chosen this fibre because has many advantages for you and your baby. It is anti-irritating, anti-bacteria, with thermal properties and protects against UV rays.

Extraction of Bamboo

In the case of bamboo, the plant is broken down and the pulp is then processed through multiple steps. First, the viscose is obtained by leaving the pulp in a mixture of water, natriumhydroxid and coal disulfit. It is later pressed on paper thin nozzles and dipped into a basin, filled with a solution of water and sulfuric acid. This process hardens the viscose that is turned back into bamboo pulp. Due to the high consumption of water and chemicals, it may be harmful to the environment; that's why professionals are working hard in order to constantly improve it. To reduce any negative impact of bamboo extraction process on the environment, CORA Happywear mixes the bamboo fibre with 30% of organic cotton during the spinning phase.
