Nano Bamboo is created from bamboo that is heated at high temperatures into charcoal and then infused into the fabric. The use of bamboo charcoal goes as far back as the 1400’s during the Chinese Ming Dynasty. Fabrics infused with nano bamboo particles are quick drying and naturally resistant to mold and bacterial growth, which can cause odor and skin irritation. Arbor uses this fabrication in our boardshorts and Windward Jacket. Bamboo is today’s most renewable, sustainably grown raw material.
