We are excited to finally launch our product. It took a long time from the first idea to have the actual product on hand.
Here is our story. The short version.
I was looking for a fabric that absorbs moisture better, than cotton. I started to order samples from fabric stores, visit local craft stores etc.
As I was searching I bumped into a store that carried fabrics made from bamboo. They claimed that bamboo is superior in moisture absorbency to many other types of fabric. After reading more about bamboo used in textiles, I decided I want to try it.
It was Christmas time and I ordered 20 yards of bamboo/cotton velour fabric from an online store. I dug out my old Singer sewing machine and by Christmas I had a King size set ready to test.
I loved it right away, although it was heavier and warmer than my cotton flannel set. But it was so much softer. Once I changed my pajamas for a lighter one, or skipped it, I was in heaven.
I had enough leftover material to make a set for my teenager son. I expected a "whatever" attitude from him. But he genuinely loved it.
That was the moment when I knew we were in business.
It took me over a year to find the perfect bamboo/cotton blend, and a factory to make it. We had to overcome many obstacles.
I was blessed finding good people to help me throughout the manufacturing process. I will give more credit to them in this blog later.
This product was created by love, not greed.
I hope it brings as much joy to your family as it does for ours.
