In the age we live in, courage seems a slightly old-fashioned virtue. Courage requires you to acknowledge the risks and perils, your own weakness or inability, yet to persevere despite everything against you. 

Raising a child, being a father, requires large dollops of courage, blind faith and nerves of steel. It was Barack Obama who said “Any fool can have a child. That doesn’t make you a father. It’s the courage to raise a child that makes you a father”. As a second-hand observer of fatherhood, that seems absolutely true!

Why we are mad about Bamboo Towels...

Posted in Bathroom

In addition to being made from our eco-efficient friend bamboo,
soft and silky bamboo towels carry several benefits that make them more superior
(in our humble opinion) to cotton towels. In addition to being a green raw material,
bamboo makes soft and luxurious bath and kitchen towels.
If you’re even considering making the swap to bamboo towels,
just glance at the list below and you’ll be completely convinced.

Soft & Silky:

Bamboo fabric is an incredibly soft and silky material, often compared to cashmere or silk.
Towels made from bamboo viscose have an incredibly soft texture,
making them ideal for drying off after a bath or shower!
Protect your sensitive skin with a plush bamboo towel instead of using one made of scratchy cotton.


It is relatively well known that bamboo is a hypoallergenic material that is able to resist mold,
mildew, and even pests. Chemicals and pesticides are not needed to help it grow,
so the resulting fabric doesn’t contain the harsh toxins that often irritate the skin.
As a plant-based material, it does not carry lanolin, which is one of the main reasons individuals have allergic reactions to towels,
sheets, and clothing. These qualities make bamboo towels a great choice for babies, as well as those with allergies or sensitive skin.

Anti - Bacterial:

These claims go back and forth, and studies are still in the works,
but reports have shown that 100% bamboo sheets and towels retain the anti-bacterial qualities of the live bamboo plant.
Towels are known to be a hothouse for bacteria, mold, and mildew,
so an ideal solution would be to create a material that rejects those very pathogens and allergens,
which is precisely what you get with bamboo towels!

Highly Absorbent:

This may be the best feature of bamboo towels to date.
In addition to being plush and comfortable, the soft material is highly absorbent!
It’s frustrating to pick up a towel to find it still damp from yesterday’s shower,
but with bamboo towels, that is no longer a problem. The high absorbency means it takes a whole lotta water to make it feel damp.
Additionally, bamboo fiber retains the moisture-wicking properties of the plant in nature,
meaning your towel is always dry and ready for you.

Thermo - Regulating:

Bamboo is known for its ability to grow in a wide variety of climates,
partially due to its temperature adaptability. Fortunately, this quality is retained in the fabric,
making the bamboo towels and robes capable of adapting to the temperature of your bathroom,
keeping you comfortably warm or cool any time of the year.


Most naturally renewable textile materials are biodegradable,
but towels and linens are often blended with synthetic fabrics,
which sit in a landfill. Bamboo towels are great for the environment
because they are completely biodegradable at the end of their domestic lives.
The cellulose fibers will naturally decompose when exposed to sunlight,
and 100% bamboo towels can actually be composted to disintegrate completely into the earth.

Resistant to Pilling:

There’s nothing like pulling out your favorite soft and plush towel to instead find a shadow of its former glory.
Fortunately, bamboo towels are more resistant to pilling than their cotton counterparts, and retain their plush comfort longer.
Bamboo towels are great for the bathroom, but are just as good for the kitchen.
With their highly absorbent, yet quick-drying capabilities, you can dry dishes or clean up a spill lickity split!
Additionally, the anti-microbial qualities are great to have in the kitchen.
You can replace your disposable paper towels with reusable bamboo dish towels to reduce your carbon footprint on this planet we all call home.

History of Bamboo Bath Towels

Posted in Bathroom

How bath towels originated and more recently bamboo bath towels?

Towels that we all use were actually first woven in modern day Bursa, Turkey in the 18th century.
These towels were hand woven, making a minimum of only 3-4 towels per day.
After the Industrial Revolution towels became a lot less expensive to produce and today
Turkey has an annual production of about 100 000 tons.

In more recent years hand loomed Real Bamboo and Organic Cotton Towels are being produced and they are the ultimate in luxury.
Bamboo fabric is highly absorbent, naturally antibacterial and luxuriously soft, dries faster than cotton.

Keeping Towels White and Clean

Posted in Bathroom

Who of us haven’t at one stage thought that we would go mad because our towels weren’t getting clean or in case of white towels weren’t staying white. This is a common challenge not only in the hospitality industry, but also in most households. Here at Linen Drawer we have fast experience in these areas yet we still learn every day and this was something that we recently revisited and learnt more about.
