Bebe Bamboo™ was founded in October 2014 by Meiyen, a mother of 4. She started her business as an online retailer and quickly became a distributor of several baby brands in Singapore, Malaysia and Indonesia. Along the way, she was inspired by her brand principles who are moms themselves, to come out with her own branding. A branding with useful products but with an eco-friendly version.
How it all Started
After a few twists and turns and some highs and lows, Bebe Bamboo™ was officially launched in October 2014. The bed and bath range were inspired by the children in her lives and with softness and comfort as her mantra. The benefits of the temperature regulating, sustainably sourced bamboo fabric contributed to Bebe Bamboo’s launch success.
In early 2015, Bebe Bamboo™ was awarded its first Parents World award for the most natural and super absorbent baby hooded towel. The recently introduced range of products are even bigger and better and still delivers the same high quality and comfort set out to produce from the beginning. She continues to draw inspiration from children and their parents and hopefully, adults’ range will be available real soon.
Bamboo grows very quickly with minimal help or intervention. There is no need for irrigation, chemicals or pesticides and it reseeds itself so there is limited input from gas-guzzling, heavy farm machinery. It also grows very tall, so a farmer can yield more per square metre than many other crops.
Our manufacturer supplies only the highest quality products that are Oeko Tex 100 certified – an industry standard given at point of manufacture.
Below are some of the remarkable characteristics of bamboo:
•Softness – Softer than the softest cotton. Bamboo fabric has a natural sheen to the surface and feels similar to silk or cashmere.
•Comfortable – Bamboo fabric absorbs water 3-4 times better than cotton, keeping skin comfortable, rather than sticky, in hot weather. The fabrics stay 2-3 degrees cooler in hot temperatures and warmer in cold temperatures. Bamboo apparel is thermal regulating, anti-fungal, anti-static and will keep you cooler, drier, warmer and odor free.
•Appearance – Bamboo looks like expensive Pima or Egyptian cotton and drapes like silk. It has less shrinkage than cotton and does not pill. It has been described as feeling like pure cashmere.
•Protective and Hygienic – Unlike other anti-microbial fabrics, which require a chemical treatment, organic Bamboo fiber clothing is naturally anti-microbial requiring no added harmful chemicals. It contains an agent, “bamboo kun”, that prevents bacteria from cultivating on it.
•UV Protection – Bamboo fiber fabrics have natural UV protection. There have been tests where companies have sent out 100% bamboo clothing to research laboratories for UV protection testing. The UPF label rate is 15. The fabric scored 18.3 on the UPF scale with 94.15% UVA block and 93.17% UVB block. * The UPF system was created especially for sun protective fabrics. UPF measurements of fabrics are generally tested by spectrophotometer equipment and are not tested using human subjects. The UPF rate indicates how much of the sun’s UV radiation is absorbed by the fabric. The advantage of the UPF standard is that both UVB and UVA are measured.
•Natural and Chemical-Free – Bamboo is grown without using pesticides or chemical fertilizers. Bamboo fiber is 100% biodegradable. The many uses and benefits of bamboo continue to increase as individuals turn to organic, eco-friendly products. One area seeing tremendous growth is bamboo home textile. Parents are realizing the benefits of organic products to both their baby’s health and to the environment, and bamboo home textile are an ideal fit. Bamboo is perfect next to babies delicate skin because it is naturally hypoallergenic, and anti-bacterial, preventing odor, allergies and skin irritations. In addition, it is thermal regulating, which is important since babies have a hard time regulating body temperature when first born.
With all the positive benefits to your baby and the environment, why wouldn’t a parent be excited about this great new product line?
You guys know im always on the lookout for the best products for my babies and as you can see in the picture, Mikhail feels absolutely heavenly in his Bebe Bamboo Baby Hooded Towel after his bath. I like that the towel is super absorbent and really gentle on his baby delicate skin. All i need to do it dab the towel gently on him and he is dry (some lousy towels you have to rub/wipe to dry the skin). As highly absorbent of water as this towel is, it is also quick to dry! The towel also has anti-bacterial properties! 😀 (we all know how much i LOVE anything thats anti-bacterial, anti-germs etc) HAHA!
