An increasing number of makers are turning to bamboo-derived fibers for its functional attributes.

Bamboo's abundance and renewability make it the top material for China's sustainable women's apparel line. With the country boasting the world's largest bamboo acreage, suppliers are provided easy access to the material. The plant is also renewable, achieving full height and girth in two or three years.

Available as either rayon or charcoal, fibers derived from bamboo are popular because of their functional properties. The former is anti-bacterial and retains this property despite repeated rinsing and prolonged exposure to the sun. It is also hypoallergenic, anti-static and UV-protective. Bamboo charcoal, meanwhile, is known for fighting odor buildup and having a soft hand. These fibers are often blended with other fabrics for increased density.

The adoption of recycled plastic bottles is likewise gaining ground. Several companies are partnering with recycling facilities, which convert PET bottles into yarns suitable for clothing.

The products below have been handpicked by our China-based market analyst to represent the current trends in women's sustainable clothing.
