Cariloha Bamboo Clothing
By Organic Reviewer

Cariloha is a clothing brand that fuses the laid back Caribbean culture with the welcoming Aloha of Hawaii. Their products are designed to give the comforts of beach clothing with the functionality and style of everyday wear. The signature of Cariloha clothing is that they are made from naturally renewable bamboo. This gives their clothing a unique feel that is airy, lightweight and oh so soft!

This was my first time wearing a bamboo product, and I’m wondering now why I waited so long! The material is incredibly soft and feels great against your skin. Bamboo is twice as soft as cotton and an extremely comfortable material.

In addition to being comfortable, the bamboo fibers are also very functional. The fibers breathe exceptionally well and wicks moisture away from your body. This amazing air flow through the fibers reduces the temperature against your body by 3 degrees. Bamboo is also anti-bacterial, hypoallergenic and naturally odor resistant.

When wearing Cariloha clothing, you can rest assured that you’re wearing a product that’s eco-friendly. Bamboo is one of the most renewable and sustainable products on the earth. It’s extremely fast growing and regenerates very quickly. Cariloha proves that it’s possible to care about the earth and look great while doing it!

I reviewed the women’s bamboo scoop tee and my husband tried out the men’s crew tee with a pocket. We were both amazed at how incredibly soft the bamboo fabric was!

BAMBOO SCHAFFER TANKS

Attractive, updated flower-and-petal print looks as stylish and soft as the fabric it’s made of. This new relaxed-fit tank features clean, smooth edging on armholes, neckline and waistline, giving it a classy look that’s still fun to wear around town. Tank has two different applications – heavier embroidery combined with screen printing on the stylish slub patterning.

Made from 60% organic cotton / 40% viscose from bamboo, the tank also features fashionable ruching around the neck and sewn-in Cariloha custom neck label with bamboo-soft tagging. Sporty, 2×1, ribbed neck and armhole.

BAMBOO SINCLAIR SKIRTS
Easily one of the most comfortable, playful skirts you’ll ever wear, and its bamboo-soft fabric and tailoring truly seal the deal. It features clean, finished edges that provide a classy look that’s perfect for an afternoon with the girls or for a swimsuit cover-up.

Made from 60% organic cotton / 40% viscose from bamboo, the A-line skirt has a fashionable sewn-in Cariloha custom waist label with a satin, wing vertical tag. The new skirt and tank can be matched together – but also look great to be worn separate, pairing with a racer tank or any style from the Bamboo Style Collection.

The tank is great to wear on warm summer days or to combine with a cardigan for spring and fall. The pattern and colors work well in any season. The bamboo tank also works well as a swimsuit cover-up.

You’ll love the feel of the bamboo/cotton blend against your skin – and you’ll probably just want to wear it right out of the Cariloha store and bag up your old clothes. The store staff won’t mind – trust us.

The tank is cute and casual and is great for any laid-back occasion. The skirt is fun, flirty, and playful and can be worn over a swimsuit or for a day out with the girls.

You’ll pray for warm days just so you can wear this tank and skirt combo!

Cariloha: 6 Reasons to go Bamboo
By Landon Faulkner

Bamboo apparel is still left of mainstream, but with the help of Cariloha it is making a strong move towards being the go-to fabric in almost any situation. I have been wearing Cariloha products for a few months now during my training runs and I have a few observations about running in bamboo. Or in other words, six reasons you should go bamboo.

1.) Bamboo is Tough Stuff

First off, Cariloha’s bamboo apparel is tough, durable and will last forever. I wear Cariloha bamboo socks on every run and most days I decide to wear shoes (I prefer being barefoot or wearing sandals) and they have help up to the abuse better than any other sock I’ve worn. I’ve also been clumsy enough to take a couple hard falls while running after tripping on technical trails. While my skin has been grated off from the rocky trail like cheese my Cariloha performance crew has always escaped with nothing more than some dirt and dust from my ill-advised tumbles.

2.) Bamboo is Soft

I know it seems somewhat counterintuitive to first say that bamboo is tough then follow with how soft it is and chances are if you’ve never tried bamboo you really don’t know how soft it is. It is one of those “see it to believe it” type things, except you actually have to feel it, not just see it. As part of the fit line, Cariloha has the most comfortable shorts and pants you could dream of. My favorite piece of clothing to put on during those cold mornings and days are Cariloha’s Bamboo Training Pants. Slip these guys on and you’ll never want to wear anything else. Like all of Cariloha’s products these pants are softer than anything else you’ve worn, especially anything you’ve worn to train in.

3.) Bamboo Doesn’t Stink

One huge plus is that Cariloha bamboo products don’t stink. Bamboo is a natural fiber like cotton, which doesn’t easily harbor all that bacteria that makes your clothes stink like your synthetic options. For my to be able to enjoy a 2 or 3 hour run and not have Kyra pass out when I get home because I stink so bad is always a huge positive. That has been especially true with Cariloha’s Compression Shorts.

4.) Bamboo Wicks

I realize I just compared bamboo to cotton in my previous section, but only so far as they are both natural fibers and that’s where the similarities end. While cotton is absolutely rotten for almost any sport, bamboo easily and quickly wicks your sweat away helping keep you dry. I sweat like crazy when out on the trail and having a natural fiber shirt that wicks as well as Cariloha’s fit line is hard to beat.

Cariloha Introduces New Bamboo Throw Blankets

15 Aug

Cariloha Bamboo Blanket 2014
CUDDLE UP IN SOFTNESS WITH CARILOHA’S NEWEST PLUSH BAMBOO BLANKET!

Bamboo retailer, Cariloha, this week announced the newest iteration of its bamboo throw blankets made of viscose from bamboo. Designed by Cariloha’s product and R&D teams, the new blankets will be available exclusively at Cariloha stores and online by October.

Not only does the blanket’s reintroduction broaden Cariloha’s bamboo bedding line, but it also answers consumer demand for a bamboo blanket that was only available during the holiday season last year.

The Cariloha bamboo blanket comes in three color options (sandy, ocean blue, and harbor gray). The noticeably softer fabric content is 50% bamboo and 50% polyester. Dimensions: 50” x 70”. Retail pricing: $119.

“It’s the softest, most durable bamboo blanket we’ve released to date,” said Scott Brady, Cariloha VP of Communications. “We’ve added a reinforcing topstitch to give the blanket a cleaner, stronger finish, along with a fabric reinforcement strip around the seam area to provide more durability. The plush-pile fabric makes the Cariloha blanket ultra-comfy and ideal for year round use.”

“The hypoallergenic, odor-resistant properties of the bamboo blankets help prevent skin irritation and mildew smells, unlike non-bamboo throws,” said Brady. “Allergies, odors and moisture are repelled easier because of the naturally occurring bamboo properties, which make the blankets ideal for any household.”

Cariloha bamboo blankets come with a 90-day quality guarantee. If the blankets don’t live up to the customers’ expectations, Cariloha will replace them without reservation. The bamboo blankets are machine washable on delicate cycle and tumble dried low. To preserve fabric plushness, Cariloha does not recommend ringing, shaking or vacuuming them. The blankets are also eligible for Cariloha’s free drop-shipping program to any U.S. mailing address.

Cariloha Bamboo Fitness Wear

Cariloha Bamboo Performance Wear
By Style, Decor & More

What motivates you to be active? Well, for starters it helps to have stylish, comfortable, and breathable workout apparel. It sure works for me! I am absolutely loving my new workout wear from Cariloha!

Cariloha takes comfort to a whole new level with its bamboo performance wear! I had no idea how many benefits there were to using bamboo apparel. I have bamboo sheets that are amazingly soft, but I never really thought about clothing. Bamboo is the most “green” and sustainable, renewable resource on the planet. Aside from its super soft texture, bamboo requires significantly less pesticides than cotton, it’s breathable, naturally antimicrobial, blocks 99% of UV rays, moisture wicking, is lightweight, and hypo-allergenic. Isn’t that incredible?

I’m wearing Cariloha’s Bamboo X Cami and Bamboo Yoga Pant fitness wear, and couldn’t be happier! The super cute racer-back cami has 4-way stretch and a mid-impact, built-in shelf bra. The yoga pant also offers 4-way stretch and all the comfort of bamboo. Each Cariloha item features the Four P’s to thriving while being active: Athletic Performance. Odor Prevention. Skin Preservation. Sun Protection.

If bamboo is good for the environment, healthier, and softer than cotton, why would anyone want to use anything else?

Cariloha Bamboo Sheets WAY Softer than Egyptian Cotton

1 Aug

Cariloha Bamboo sheets continue to attract customers seeking the best in naturally luxurious linens. Not only are they softer than other natural and synthetic fabrics, but they also keep you warm in the winter and cool in the summer thanks to bamboo’s inherent thermal-regulating properties. They’re extremely helpful for people who suffer from night sweats, skin irritations or sensitivities. If that wasn’t enough, bamboo sheets and towels are odor resistant and good for the environment, too. But, don’t take our word for it…

Cariloha Bamboo Bed Sheets

Cariloha Bamboo
By Mommy Adventures

I have a set of expensive Egyptian cotton sheets that we got on sale once. They are silky and smooth, and pretty fantastic. Or so I thought, until Cariloha sent me some of their bamboo sheet sets. I was intrigued when they first contacted me to review them, as I’d never heard of bamboo sheets before.

Bamboo is one of the fastest growing plants on the planet. I say plant because despite it’s tree-like appearance, bamboo is in the grass family. It sends new shoots up every year, reaching maturity in 3-5 years. Bamboo can be harvested continually without impacting the surrounding environment, making it a very sustainable alternative to cotton and also wood. Needless to say, the thought of using bamboo for sheets and clothes is pretty exciting to a Sustainable Agriculture student such as myself.

Aaron and I put our new bamboo sheets on our queen sized bed, admiring their softness as we went. When we were finished, we laid on them with the kids. Our puppy Rosie wanted to check them out as well. We had only had her for a week or so at the time and didn’t want her to miss out on our little family bed sheet snuggle. Unfortunately, Rosie liked the sheets so much she didn’t want to get off of them. Instead of going out to pee, she peed right there on the bed. Luckily for us, we have a mattress protector under the sheets, but it was still pretty annoying. I wanted to sleep on those sheets!!! Instead, we had to wash them and remake the bed with different, less soft and inviting sheets. Humph.

I kept the pillow cases on though, and slept on them until time to change the sheets again because they are so soft, silky, and nice feeling on my skin. I like them way better than my previous favourite Egyptian cotton sheets. I just wish the pillow cases had a little pocket for the end of the pillow to go in so they don’t come out, but I think that is just an American thing. I don’t recall seeing any pillow cases in the U.S. like the ones we have over here in Australia.

Cariloha Bamboo-Lined Handbag
By Diane Estrella

Adorbs!

Generally, I am not a blue person. I usually go with earth tones because they match everything I own, but in this case, something deep inside me drew me to this purse and it is gorgeous! The pictures do not do the color justice. It is so delicate and lovely. The purse is perfect to carry around all day, or take out for date night. It is so soft, inside and out. I don’t know how, and never would’ve thought, that something so hard and durable as bamboo could become so soft and pliable. It is truly remarkable what companies such as Cariloha are able to accomplish.

I love that in so many ways we can make strides towards more organic and natural lifestyles. No fashion is lost while going green with this purse. Lovely to keep or give as a gift. You will be amazed at how good you can look in bamboo!

This blue and white flowered handbag pops with color and personality. It features magnetic clasp, inside zipper pocket, two more side pockets on the inside, and our world-exclusive bamboo lining for added durability and ultra softness. Dimensions: 11” X 6” x 4” with 5.5” handles.

Cariloha Bamboo Bed Sheet Review – The Worlds Softest Bedding!
By Coffee for Mom

Now, I wish I could actually stick a piece of bamboo fabric from these sheets and add it to my blog post just so everyone can feel how amazingly soft and cool these sheets are! I’ve had them on my bed for three nights now, and it’s been around 80 degrees for the past week here in Spokane, and I definitely feel a lot cooler and a lot less sweaty at night.

The sheets I received are for a queen bed, and they’re a perfect fit. The sides are long enough to go over my mattress and a 3-inch memory foam mattress topper. One of the things I dislike about some bed sheets is that they don’t stretch far enough to cover your entire bed and these are perfect!

The sheet set includes one fitted sheet, two pillow cases and one flat sheet. I love the flash sheet especially in summer, it keeps me cool!

Here are some of the fantastic features of Cariloha Bamboo Bed Sheets

Softer than 1000 thread count Egyptian cotton. I agree, my other set of sheets are 1,000 thread count and nowhere as near as soft as these ones.

Extra deep fitted sheets, fits mattresses up to 18″. As I said before, I love how deep the bed sheets are especially with the thickness of my bed and mattress.

Temperature regulation – keep cool in summer and warm in winter. I can’t comment on winter as I haven’t tried these in winter yet, but they have definitely cooled me down at night in the summer weather.

Contains natural moisture-wicking properties. I’m not 100% sure what moisture wicking is, but if it means making you sweat less it’s definitely worked on my husband who loves the sheets, too!

Made from eco-friendly bamboo, the most sustainable, renewable source on the planet. I’m always happy when a product is made with less effects on the natural environment!
Hypo-allergenic, 100% Viscose from Bamboo.
