When you first experience bamboo clothing and bath towels, you immediately notice the difference in softness and quality compared to other non-bamboo towels you’ve used. With one touch, you can actually feel the difference, and you wonder how you ever used anything other than bamboo before. Trust us, you’re not alone in this discovery.

Day in and day out, thousands of Cariloha customers are getting their first feel of bamboo and making the switch immediately. Question is, will they ever go back? Or, better still, why would they want to? With so many unique benefits to bamboo, like its moisture-wicking and thermal-regulating properties, or its odor-resistant and eco-friendly benefits, most people see no point in returning to the bygone days of non-bamboo fabrics.

Don’t take our word for it, though. Read this unbiased media review of Cariloha’s bamboo clothing and bath goods and decide for yourself.

Cariloha Bamboo Clothing, Apparel and Accessories
By Shop With Me Mama

I’m addicted to the softness of bamboo clothing, apparel and accessories! I have many bamboo products and adore them. One of my most favorite blankets is bamboo, and I sleep with it every night on my bed, even in the summer!

Recently, I received some awesome, soft yoga pants from Cariloha. They are the softest pants I have ever put on my body. They fit me perfectly and they are so nice to lounge around the house in and sleep in! Totally enjoying my Bamboo Fitted Yoga Pant! I also received the most softest bath towels, hand towels and washcloths, EVER.

The bath towels are big and even cover my hubby when he gets out of the shower. My kids wrap themselves in these towels, after the bath, for a while, because they are SO soft and cozy! We love these bamboo towels, hand towels and wash cloths! We love our Bamboo Bath Towel Sets!

These bacteria-resistant towels are made from a blend of rayon from renewable bamboo and cotton, Cariloha towels are perfect for home, gym, car, pool or spa.

REVIEW OF LUXURIOUS CARILOHA RESORT BAMBOO BED SHEETS
By SparkleShinyLove

I feel like I’m always in the middle of redecorating! We moved into a new house four years ago, and all of our decorating projects have been ongoing. One of our latest projects has been the master bedroom. We painted it a great grey, and we recently picked out some new lamps, pillows and bedding set.

One thing we were lacking was a new set of sheets to match it all. Previously, we had a green color pallet, so we had to start fresh.

Our new sheets are from Cariloha – all of their products are made from bamboo! The sheets we now have are called Resort Bamboo Bed Sheets in Shoreline Gray.

The packaging was great – I felt like I was opening up a present with the big box the sheets came in!

Usually by the end of the night I am kicking off our duvet because it’s just too hot. I remember waking up in the morning the first time we used these new sheets thinking, wow – I still have the covers on!

Read SparkleShinyLove’s entire review here.

Regarding Cariloha’s new bamboo pillows and duvet inserts (coming soon to Cariloha stores and online: The bamboo pillow offers a medium firmness, and the bamboo duvet is an all-season, all-weather duvet. The nature of the bamboo fibers makes it possible for the inserts’ filling to stay put, not lumping up like down can, which means less fluffing and more comfort for a better night’s sleep.

Cariloha Bamboo Sheets & Blanket Review
By Powered by Mom

In my home, Cariloha bamboo products are an absolute favorite – whether it’s their clothes, towels or bedding. My daughter had been hinting that she’d like some bamboo sheets and a blanket like I had on my bed. Lucky for her, we received some just in time to enjoy for spring and they’re great for gifts any time of year. Instead of chocolate, give super soft bamboo clothes, blankets, sheets and more!

My daughter received Cariloha’s newest version of the awesome bamboo throw blanket. Now, at first, hers looks just like mine, but I soon discovered that they had actually improved this blanket. I didn’t think that was possible as I already thought it was a fabulous blanket! While mine has the super-soft, fluffy bamboo on the one side, the other side is a flat material. While still comfy and soft, they did improve upon it.

The new version has the soft and fluffy material on both sides. On one side, it’s a shorter pile but none the less it’s the same, so you can use either side of the blanket. My daughter was in heaven as she always tries to steal mine, and I didn’t like to give it up.

The Cariloha Bamboo Blanket is a perfect length to go on her twin size bed. She didn’t want to come out of the super soft coziness of the blanket, not to mention the bamboo sheets underneath.

I don’t blame her for not wanting to get out of the bed. Between her blanket and her bamboo sheets, which feel like silk, it’s simply divine to stay in bed. Now, the sheets do wrinkle quite easily, but for me that doesn’t matter. We don’t want anything but bamboo sheets, as they live up to the saying that they’re crazy-soft sheets, and they’re moisture wicking and have anti-odor properties, too! Not only that, bamboo is a sustainable and renewable resource as well!

Once you’ve felt the difference in softness, comfort and style from Cariloha’s eco-friendly bamboo fabrics, you may never feel like wearing anything else. You’ll simply long to embrace that naturally comfortable lifestyle that Cariloha provides every single day.

To help illustrate the point, here’s an honest, unbiased review from Westend Fashion describing her discovery and enjoyment of Cariloha Bamboo Clothing. We hope it gives you further insight into the world of bamboo before you make the plunge into natural luxury…

A recent trip to Antigua brought about a new and interesting find on the fashion market: Bamboo Clothing! This is something totally refreshing to me. The Caribbean guarantees lots of sunshine and the unique bamboo material guarantees features that adapt to that environment.

Still, these items of clothing are just as loveable at home because of their extensive comfort. Cariloha is the name behind my recent holiday purchases – it offers a broad range of clothing and accessories which can be found on their website. I am already desperate to make another Cariloha buy- a light and colourful bamboo scarf, an even newer fashion!

What to expect from BAMBOO in fabric:

Comfort
Moisture Wicking
Breathable
Anti-odour
UV protection
Lightweight

These two fun, vibrant tops are super practical and cute with the extra detail of a string tie at the bottom. They look simple but are so soft and light, ideal for a sunny holiday or cosy lounge around at home.

Wrapped up in Bamboo Fashion for Spring & Summer
By Diva Fabulosa

I got my first bamboo shirt from Cariloha Bamboo and it became my favorite workout shirt because of its soft silky feel and comfortable wear. It is twice as soft as cotton, 3 degrees cooler, and it wicks moisture away from the body. This summer season I got three new Cariloha pieces to add to my growing bamboo fashion collection.

First is a Bamboo Dolman Shirt in Charcoal shade that I can use for casual or sporty looks. It has a curved hem that falls like a deep scoop and it doesn’t have a set-in sleeves. What I like about the cut of this shirt is that you can wear it three ways. It can be worn with layers, off-shoulder, or simply as it is. It can also be worn with shorts, pants, or short skirts.

My second addition is a Bamboo Linen Pants with drawstring-tie waist, front patch pockets, and button-closure pockets in the back. Aside from the stylish design, I like the lightweight and airy feel that you get when wearing these linen pants. Take it with you to the beach and pair it up with flip flops or flat sandals for a casual afternoon stroll.

I decided to get a Geo Bamboo Infinity Scarf to complement my existing Cariloha shirts and other tees in my wardrobe. The scarf is made of 100% viscose from bamboo and printed with geometric shapes in bright and bold colors. You can wrap it on your head to protect you from the harmful rays of the sun or on your neck and shoulders during cool evenings.

Cariloha Bamboo Clothing Below the Belt
By Shawna Cumpston

While most people love to get flowers and chocolate for Valentine’s Day, I love to shop for myself, wrap my gift and put a cute little tag from the hubby, so he can take the credit for his awesome gift. This year, I found the perfect gift for both of us at Cariloha!

We decided once again to tackle the “get healthy” resolution. We have been hitting the gym, sweating to the Oldies with Richard Simmons and basically denying ourselves of anything remotely delicious.

To reward our hard work and dedication, I found the ideal gift to help us keep on track and look good while doing it! Cariloha’s Bamboo Fit line has a variety of athletic clothes, including Athletic Cropped Pants for me and Men’s Bamboo Training Pants for him.

The sleek look of the cropped pants helps me feel good about myself as I pound out another hour on the treadmill. My husband loves the comfortable feel of the pants and wears them to lounge around in after his run. The best part of Cariloha’s Bamboo Fit line is all their athletic clothing…

My feminine side was screaming that it needed some TLC, so I decided to check out Cariloha’s women’s line. I love the versatility of skirts, so as soon I saw the cuteness of Cariloha’s Sinclair Skirt, I knew I had to have one, or two. OK, OK I got THREE! I just couldn’t decide which color I liked best!

Cariloha Bamboo Sheets & Duvet Cover
By Crunchy Beach Mama

I am surrounded in softness. Laying on my Sleep Number Bed, nestled between Cariloha Bamboo Sheets and Duvet, my bed can not get any more perfect. “It feels soooo good,” says the kids all the time.

My room can easily become the playroom just because the comfort of the bed. To me it is a place to escape in the day and dream at night.

The new Cariloha Bamboo Duvet Cover was something I wanted as soon as I saw it! While I love my warm down comforter underneath, it wasn’t silky soft like the Sateen Finish of this duvet against my skin.

It features hidden wooden button closures which is a nice added touch with my sandalwood color. I’m a brown and blue girl and underneath you’d find my blue lagoon colored sheets.

The set also contains 2 shams with mitered flanges and french-flap closure.

Five Ways to Fall in Love with Bamboo this Valentine’s

30 Jan

cariloha-bamboo-bed-Ivory-Sheets

Cariloha is driven by a comfort, eco-conscious lifestyle. Everything we do is inspired by the essence and energy of the islands. We blend style, comfort and self-expression into every fabrication we makes. As the only retailer selling exclusively apparel, bedding and bath goods made from bamboo, we’re ultimately seeking to provide you with the very best in natural luxury.

With this upcoming Valentine’s Day holiday, keep in mind the following five simple ways that you and your loved ones can fall in love with bamboo softness…

1. Wear Your Heart on Your ‘Bamboo’ Sleeve

Have you felt the difference between the softness of a Cariloha Bamboo shirt and a commonplace shirt in today’s market? Cariloha’s crazy-soft bamboo clothing is as soft as silk, moisture wicking, and 3 degrees cooler than cotton. Bamboo is also naturally hypoallergenic and odor resistant. It’s considered the most renewable resource on the planet, too. All Cariloha bamboo clothing is guaranteed satisfaction for quality, durability and supreme softness. Now that’s something we can all fall in love with.

2. Love Deeply, Live Luxuriously, and Rest Comfortably in Bamboo Sheets

Take it from our friend Ruth over at Viva Veltoro, and cuddle up with your loved one in Cariloha’s luxuriously soft bamboo sheets. “These sheets are luxurious in every sense of the word! Bamboo is remarkably soft and smooth and, in my opinion, completely ideal as a bed sheet because of its natural qualities. Bamboo is 3 degrees cooler than cotton, so they feel quite cool when you first slip into them. Don’t they sound great year round? I love cool sheets and warm blankets in the winter, and staying cool in warmer weather is going to be easier in this bamboo. This material also wicks away moisture from your body, and I can completely attest to this after sleeping on these for a few weeks. Being pregnant, I’ve woken up in the middle of the night quite sweaty and warm, but since we’ve switched to these Cariloha Bamboo sheets, I haven’t woken up uncomfortably once. We’re sleeping so well and really enjoying the smooth and unique feel of these sheets on our bed!”

3. Heart Something Soft, Simple & Sustainable

Cariloha looks at bamboo as something we can all live with. Everyone who wears and uses Cariloha Bamboo goods is intrinsically giving back to a more eco-friendly world. Because bamboo is the fastest-growing plant in the world, its environmental benefits are remarkable. Bamboo can replace or indirectly decrease consumption of three critically scarce resources: wood, metal, and oil.

In a time when global warming, depletion of resources and deforestation threatens the balance of the delicate natural world and its divers eco-systems, Cariloha Bamboo is making a name for itself as a viable solution and resource that’s both remarkably useful and environmentally friendly. Bamboo horticulturists from all over the world consider bamboo to be one of the most sustainable, renewable resources known on the planet. This is evidenced in some species of bamboo that have been known to grow up to four feet a day and reach maturity within two years – a mere fraction of the 50-60 years it takes for traditional timber to grow to maturity and become ready for harvesting. After harvesting bamboo, it rapidly self-propagates and new bamboo forests quickly spring up, preventing deforestation and soil erosion that is common with other types of timber and plant harvests.

4. Spoil Your Sweetheart & Treat Her Feet to Bamboo Socks

Indulge in bamboo softness this Valentine’s. Rock ‘em, Sock ‘em, Get out and Walk ‘em! Cariloha bamboo socks were made to be soft, cool, clean and green – that’s what you’re gonna get. So, don’t sweat it. When it comes to odor-free, moisture-wicking socks, Cariloha socks walk the talk. Their unique bamboo fiber blend wicks moisture away from the skin for cool, dry wear. They’re so sockin’ soft!

5. Show Some Bamboo Love with Odor-Resistant, Ultra-Soft Bamboo Towels

Cariloha’s earth-friendly bath towel combines luxury softness and bacterial resistance into one amazing towel at an affordable price. They’re ultra soft, naturally antibacterial and highly absorbent, too. Made from a blend of rayon from renewable bamboo and cotton, Cariloha’s bamboo towels are perfect for home, gym, car, pool or spa.
