Bamboo

At Tuesday Morning, we love our Bamboo bedding (not to mention our Bamboo towels and bath accessories). We spend up to a third of our lives sleeping, so the comfort and performance of your bed sheets should be just as important as (or greater than) that of the clothes you wear everyday.

Not only are they beautiful but they have many features you may not be aware of.

 

Sustainable and Environmentally Friendly Resource:

Bamboo is one of the fastest growing plants worldwide. It regenerates quickly without the need for replanting, grows densely and thus has higher yields per acre than cotton. Bamboo is cheaper to plant, grows faster, requires less arable land space, and can be harvested using less fossil fuel thereby lessening the harmful impact on the environment.

Comfort Qualities

When processed, the rayon derived from the bamboo or bamboo fibers is recognized for its softness. As soft as silk or cashmere. The fabric naturally resists mold, mildew and odors allowing for less frequent washing, not to mention the fiber is naturally hypoallergenic and anti-bacterial.

The bamboo stalk has a tough exterior but the inner fiber is of a porous nature. This enables the fabric to be breathable, have strong absorbing qualities, and provides excellent wicking and ventilation properties, all essential qualities of the fabric for keeping your body warm during cool weather and cool during warm weather.

Rayon of bamboo fabric is easily cared for, and is recognized, loved and chosen because of its durability. When compared to cotton, “Bamboo yarn shows better results in case of strength, elongation and hairiness.” Yarn & Fabric: Bamboo VS Cotton. (Indian Textile Journal: Oct. 30, 2010). These qualities make Organic Bamboo Sheets the most comfortable sleep sets you will ever experience.

History of Bamboo

The Bamboo plant symbolizes noble character and integrity. It stays green in winter, resisting wind and snow which represents uprightness and in-corruptibility. “Bamboo Rise Puts Tradition at Risk.” (All things Considered: July 26, 2006) From Literature Resource Center. Michael Norris.

Species. Bamboo is a giant grass that takes on the function of trees in a forest eco-system and with the ability to make wood. Bamboo grows larger than their herbaceous, non-woody family relatives. John Ardle: “Bamboo and Grasses.” Bamboo plant is grown in diverse climates ranging from cold mountains to hot tropical regions of the world, with the exception of Continental Europe. There are more than 70 Genera (group of plants closely connected by common characteristics) divided into about 1,450 species. Bamboo plants range in size from true dwarfs of approximately 1 -2 inches high to towering plants up to 80 feet in height. Some species grow 1.5 – 2 inches per hour. Miller McLune 2010: “Building with Bamboo.”

Harvesting Cycles. Bamboo has a short rotation period. While trees are harvested for lumber every 20 – 50 years, Bamboo reaches maturity and can be harvested 2-3 years to 5 – 7 years. Its roots or rhizomes can grow continuously to more than 100 years. When regular trees are harvested, generally the roots system dies thereby releasing the stored carbon in the atmosphere. When Bamboo is harvested, the roots continue to thrive and replenish themselves and can again be harvested in a few short years. This accounts for the sustainability of Bamboo and their products.

Uses. In China, Bamboo has been adopted to multiple purposes by various mountain communities. The uses to which Bamboo has been adopted include construction materials, fibers, food, material for agricultural tools, utensils, music instruments as well as ornamental plants.

Qualities. Dr. Avinash Kolhatkar in his research on Bamboo, cites that Bamboo fiber possesses unique properties such as Anti-UV radiation, that the fiber is anti-bacterial, breathable, naturally hypo allergenic and toxin free, drapable, anti-static, cool and soft handle. He notes that Bamboo has better moisture absorption, that it offers better ventilation because of the various micro gaps and micro holes in its cross section and that it wicks moisture away from the skin better than any other fabric.

Steinbach Nutcrackers

It is the quality, the design and the value that makes Steinbach Nutcrackers so special. There are a large number of collectors that wait for the newest models to come out every year.

Steinbach is the most recognized and collectible of all German hand crafted nutcrackers. For most of two centuries the Steinbach family has been producing fine wooden nutcrackers and ornaments. Today, Karla Steinbach is the sixth generation to head the company since 1947 carrying on her family tradition. She oversees product development and quality control at the Steinbach factory located in Hohenhameln, in the northern region of Germany. We, at Tuesday Morning, carry more Steinbach items than any of our direct competition, and have become a place collectors come to find this brand.

    I have loved and shopped at your stores for years but moved 25 miles
    out of the Portland area. by the time I can arrange shopping for items
    featured in your brochures, Items are gone. Is there any way I can go
    to one of your stores a couple of days before and pay for items or phone
    —-or should I just give up?

    I bought Waverly sheets at Tuesday morning on several occasions and am addicted to their softness. I have not been able to get any for a really long time and go into the store almost 1-2 times weekly to check for them. Do you know when they will be available again. Garland, Texas……I30/Beltline location.

      Hi Sondra, We haven’t carried Waverly bedding in a while but our buyer recommends Laura Hart sheets or bamboo bedding as comparable sheet sets. Thanks for shopping with us!
