Makeover Your Master Bedroom with Cariloha Bamboo Sheets

10 Jun

The cloud-like softness and comfortable composition of Cariloha pillowcases, pillow inserts, bed sheets, duvets, and duvet inserts are one of a kind, as they’re all made entirely of viscose from bamboo, one of the most sustainable, renewable resources on the planet. With these distinctive, eco-friendly qualities in mind, the Cariloha Bamboo Bedding Line is ultimately designed to let you create a lifestyle of natural luxury in your own home.

Natural bamboo fibers are woven into silky-soft fabric that’s twice as soft as cotton and 3 degrees cooler, giving you the most comfortable bedding on the planet. The bamboo sheets are softer than 1,000-thread-count Egyptian cotton. The sheet set features extra deep fitted sheets; fits mattresses up to 18” deep. Plus, each item from the bedding line naturally repels odors and allergens and contains natural moisture-wicking properties that keep you cooler in warmer temperatures.

Who wouldn’t want to surround themselves and their entire bedroom in these incredible bamboo comforts? Not you, of course. Don’t take our word for it, though. Read what this unbiased reviewer has to say about making over her bedroom with Cariloha Bamboo Sheets and decide if it’s worth it for yourself:

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. And, with clothing, bedding, fitness wear, and bath goods all made from bamboo, you can truly make that happen.

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.

Your best options for cool, comfortable fashion are lightweight and airy clothing made with cooling fabrics.

You don’t have to take our word for it, though. Read this unbiased media review about Cariloha’s bamboo clothing and decide for yourself.

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.

Still Trying to Keep Your New Year Resolutions?

23 Jan

cariloha-bamboo-fitness-wear

Now that we’re well into the New Year, you may or may not be going strong with your goals and resolutions. If your 2015 resolutions are long gone or if you’re looking to make some adjustments, here are six realistic New Year’s resolutions ideas to consider from one of our favorite product reviewers. Who knows, they may just carry you through an entire year…

6 Realistic New Year’s Resolution Ideas
By Having Fun Saving

Do you make New Year’s resolutions? I did for years, then one of two things would happen:
• I would forget all about them.
• I would break one by February 1 and get discouraged and stop trying.

I really don’t think that the idea of New Year’s Resolutions was made to make us mad, sad, unhappy, or discouraged. I think the idea was to make you a better YOU, to see where you may be able to change something or add in something that makes you HAPPIER.

That being said, I thought I would share some realistic New Year’s resolution ideas. Because, if you’re like me, you haven’t committed to yours yet, or you just haven’t made them at all.

Enjoy Today

We all worry about what tomorrow will bring, what will happen in 5 years, 10 years, etc. But, do you ever actually stop and enjoy THIS VERY MOMENT? It’s great to plan for the future, but if you are not careful, you are going to miss some of the most magical moments that are happening RIGHT NOW. How many times have you been playing on your phone or watching TV when your friend or child said “Did you see that?” or “Didn’t hear what I said?” And yes, sometimes they are just telling us that they burped, but other times they are telling you that they love you, or that they hit the ball at baseball for the 1st time, or that they weren’t scared when they rode the bus home that day, or that they really need you to listen right now. Don’t miss today worrying about tomorrow. Enjoy now, enjoy this moment, enjoy TODAY.

Smile More

Did you know that it takes more muscles to frown than smile? Not to mention, your smile is beautiful!

Make Some Time for You

I know, I know, this is definitely easier said than done. I am not telling you that you have to schedule an hour a day, or even a week for just YOU right now. It just may not be possible. But, you need some time…even if it’s just a moment…that is just for YOU. Years ago when I felt like I lost ME – after I quit my job to say home with our son, and I was adjusting to all the changes in my life, I went to see a counselor. I needed someone to talk to that was outside of my circle. I explained how I felt and I will NEVER forget this analogy he told me…in fact, if you ask any of my friends, they will tell you I have told them it on several occasions.

When you’re on an airplane, the flight attendants tell you that you have to put on your air mask first before helping others. The reason they tell you that is, if you stop breathing, you can’t help ANYONE. You can’t always help others without stopping to allow yourself to breathe. If you aren’t “breathing,” you aren’t helping anyone. Not your kids, not your spouse, not your friends, not your family…and most importantly…NOT YOU. Learn to breathe.

Commit to Eating Better

Are you rolling your eyes? Doesn’t everyone make this goal? Yes, probably. But, I am asking you to keep your goal realistic so that YOU CAN DO IT! I can’t give up chocolate, I just can’t, that’s me being honest. So, that won’t be on my “eating better” list. I am a snacker. I love to snack, it’s also something I can’t give up. So, that won’t be on my “eating better” list. BUT, snacking BETTER is. Instead of potato chips or nachos by my computer or on my plate or in the kids’ lunchboxes, you will find snacks like Pretzel Crisps or Simply7 Snacks. Just because something is better for you doesn’t mean that there is no taste!

Exercise

More? Less? Better? Longer? Well, that’s up to you. I strive to work out 4-5 times a week, so I don’t want to add in any additional days really. But, I do want to exercise more. Run a bit longer, go to Jazzercise then go for a walk or bike ride with the kids later in the day. Wear my Bamboo Fit Performance Apparel from Cariloha more – not only because I love the look and feel, but because it means I am making a better ME by exercising. Again, the key here is to be realistic with your goals. Don’t say that you want to run 5 miles a day 5 days a week when you have never done that before. Just strive for something that will make you a better you. Not a different you, just a better you.

Do Something for You That You Usually Don’t Do

This can be something really simple. For me, it’s simply putting on mascara a few times a week. I work at home, so I never really think about make-up, but I think it takes me less than 30 seconds to swipe on mascara, and I can definitely tell you that it makes me feel a bit better. Put on lip gloss for no particular reason. Wear your hair down. Wear your favorite boots on a Monday instead of a date night. Wear a dress to the bus stop. Shower before lunch. Go to bed early one night. Stay up late watching movies one night.

And one last suggestion, once you come up with your New Year’s resolutions, write them down or put them in your phone. That way you can glance at them from time to time.
