We care about our planet and all its inhabitants. The Boody Bamboo eco wear concept was born when we discovered how much more sustainable organic bamboo yarn is than organic cotton.
Bamboo is the fastest growing plant on the planet and does not require any fertilizers or pesticides. Importantly, bamboo requires virtually no irrigation, while cotton requires 20,000 litres of water to produce just 1 kilogram.
Our love for bamboo grew and grew... we learned that bamboo is harvested like grass, regrowing vigorously every season from it''s offshoots. And bamboo yields up to 30 times more per hectare than cotton! Our Production process is just as eco-friendly. Our suppliers use only closed loop systems, meaning all water is filtered and re-used.
For many generations, women in northern Ghana have been using traditional weaving methods and completely natural materials to create these robust and highly decorative baskets. And now, with Baraka's help and the craftwork of community-based women's groups around Bolgatanga, Northern Ghana, you too can own one!
Boody Bamboo Eco Wear – our game-changing Australian brand of fashion underwear and outerwear meets the needs of the 21st Century woman or man who wants a fashionable garment that fits perfectly, looks and feels fabulous, is healthy to wear and doesn’t ‘cost the earth’.
Boody fabric has been exclusively sourced and developed from organic bamboo yarn and our garments are therefore seam free and silky soft on the skin.
Boody does not creep or show panty lines, and washes and wears beautifully, lasting much longer than your cotton undies.
Bamboo thrives naturally without pesticides because it contains a super antifungal and antibacterial bioagent named Bamboo Kun. This substance is tightly bound to the cellulose molecules and therefore is maintained in our finished Boody bamboo products. Recent studies by the Japanese Textile Inspection Association found these properties were maintained even after 50 washings of Bamboo fabric. The most noticeable benefit is that Bamboo cloth is odour free – odour being an unpleasant by-product of bacteria proliferation. Boody will keep you fresh all day every day.
One of the wonders of bamboo is that its fibre is hypoallergenic. Bamboo fibre naturally contains many micro-gaps, which provide substantial ventilation and moisture absorption. Bamboo fibre is hydroscopic – moisture is shunted away from the body and evaporated rapidly allowing your skin to breathe more easily.
Bamboo fibre is much finer than cotton and therefore the fabric is lighter, softer and has a more luxurious drape. The millions of micro-gaps in the yarn make it highly breathable, helping you keep cooler in summer and warmer in winter.
The carbon in bamboo is known to have a balanced charge. This means that you won’t get that horrible static feel when you wear Boody.
Static free, perfect temperature... what more could you want?
Boody Eco Wear is your every day garment. Boody encapsulates exactly how you feel about life ...
We came from two different worlds. One of us was a fashion designer, the other a pharmacist. We were both passionate about good health – of both individuals and the environment.
Together we had an idea: to create a game-changing range of stylish and comfortable, eco-friendly garments – for all who love life.
Boody Eco Wear For Down Under was born.
The story begins with the fabric. First we sourced the finest quality yarn spun from bamboo, which is one of the fastest growing, renewable and sustainable plants on earth. We then blended our yarn with a touch of nylon and elastane to create a fabric that’s superbly soft, stretchy and wrinkle-free.
Boody bamboo fabric is renowned for its moisture absorbency, breathability and antibacterial qualities. Boody is seam free: the perfect fit for you – and the planet.
Born in Australia, now loved worldwide.
Boody is a brand that supports the global trend for all things green and ethical. This is our passion.
Made from organic chemical free bamboo yarn, Boody bamboo is plantation grown and requires much less water than cotton-based fabrics. Even our box is recycled and printed with vegetable-based ink!
