Cariloha Bamboo Bath Towels

Cariloha Plush Bath Towels and Sheets
By Pawsitive Living

Bathrooms are considered a high traffic room. We tend to our physical needs, put on makeup, fuss with our hair, and of course bathe and shower. If we reflect a little deeper, towels would be by far the hardest working item in our home. Just think about what the towel has to cope with, drying, patting, buffing, absorbing, cleaning, blotting, wiping…and so on. The last thing we want is a rough fabric that’s abrasive and harsh on our tender bodies. We want soft and cozy!

Cariloha is the creator of a fabulous selection of gorgeous eco-friendly bamboo products. Bamboo has antimicrobial, anti-fungal and antibacterial qualities. It’s absorbent, highly breathable, anti-static, and great for sensitive skin. It’s also incredibly soft to the touch and gentle to the body.

Cariloha Bath Sheets are ginormous and the epitome of all that is lavish and plush. The Bath Towels are equally as abundant, but slightly smaller. All their towels are made from a blend of rayon from renewable bamboo and cotton to create an extra smooth texture. They’re plump and deliciously smooth and supple on the weary body. They absorb moisture quickly and feel so warm and snugly. I’m so happy they’re snag resistant; I don’t know how many towels I’ve caught my ring on, leaving it frayed. Considering the various sizes, the towels are fairly lightweight so even little kids can enjoy the pure joy of its welcoming wrap. They come in several solid colors as well as white with decorative colored strips.

The Towel Sets offer the same high standards as the bath sheets. The set includes a bath towel, a hand towel, and a wash cloth. I personally love towel pieces to have color and pattern harmony, it just feels better when everything is congruent. If you have several members of your family using the same bathroom, having the different color sets is ideal, they each have their own personal towels. They are also great for students and perfect for taking to the gym or pool. Using Cariloha towels is a glorious experience.

Cariloha Bamboo Sheets
By Shortcut Saver

I kind of have a thing for soft sheets on my bed. They have to be comfortable and made out of lightweight fabric. I came across Cariloha Bamboo Sheets that are luxurious and made out of viscose from Bamboo. They have a nice sheen look to them and come in 5 colors such as Ivory, Tan, Sage, White, and Blue. Inside the set is a fitted sheet, flat sheet, and 2 pillow cases. You can get the sets in Standard and King.

I received a Cariloha Bamboo Sheet set in the color tan and was so excited to put them on my bed. When I laid on the sheets, I noticed how soft and comfortable they were. They were also lightweight and contain natural moisture-wicking properties so I didn’t sweat at night. It is actually softer than silk or cashmere, and you only pay a fraction of the cost for it.

Another great feature of the Cariloha Bamboo Sheets is that it is machine washable, which is a plus for me. The sheets are extra deep so it will fit mattresses up to 18″ deep and will keep it from coming undone in the middle of the night. If you are living green, Cariloha Bamboo Sheets are for you since they are made from eco-friendly bamboo.

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!

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.

Clothes made from bamboo also naturally provide added protection against the sun’s harmful UV rays.

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 Bed Sheets

Cariloha Bamboo

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.
