The fabric is one of the most important things when choosing children’s bedding and clothing. In fact, get this spot on, and the rest is easy. Kid’s skin can be susceptible, so you need to know what to look for. Natural fabrics like bamboo are ideal, providing abundant benefits to keep them irritation-free and comfortable. Read on to discover why bamboo fabric is the best choice for caring for your little ones’ skin.

What are the benefits of bamboo fabric for little ones?

Softness and Comfort

First things first, let’s talk texture. Children (and parents) love bamboo for its superior softness and comfort. The silky, smooth fabric glides over the skin, feeling breathable and gentle on sensitive skin. From bamboo pyjamas to bamboo bedding, the products are a great lifestyle choice for your little ones’ everyday essentials. Do you want to know the best bit? It is easy to keep clean and softer with every wash!

Kids Bamboo Bedding Grey


A keyword to look out for when choosing bedding, bath products, and clothing for kid’s skin is hypoallergenic. This ensures the fabric will gently protect against allergies and irritation. Choosing hypoallergenic bamboo fabric is excellent for kids, who often experience allergies throughout the year. The soft and gentle bamboo textile is ideal for children from Summer to Winter and all the months in between. Bamboo bedding is perfect for snuggling, keeping skin comfortable and sleeping soundly from light out until morning.

Thermoregulation and breathability

Another fantastic benefit of bamboo fabric for children is that it is naturally thermoregulating and breathable. Little ones often experience overheating, particularly at night during the warmer months. Breathable bamboo bedding and clothing regulate their body temperature, keeping them at just the right degrees so they stay comfortable. This makes bamboo products ideal for seasonal use, keeping them warm and cosy in the winter and cool and comfy throughout the summer.

Moisture-wicking and odour-resistant

Breathable bamboo fabrics are also moisture-wicking and odour-resistant, another reason they are perfect for little ones’ skin. Bamboo bedding and clothing will draw sweat away from the body, preventing the build-up of odours that can come with daily wear and use. When it comes to bedtime, this helps keep sleep beautifully fresh and hygienic – so choose bamboo bedding and pyjamas for the freshest night’s sleep.


When it comes to bedtime and playtime, kids can come into contact with many different bacteria. Bamboo fabric is naturally antibacterial, and this helps to protect their skin from dust mites and harmful bacteria. Optimising hygiene is vital for little ones, and choosing bamboo fabrics will help protect their skin from any irritation. This is particularly important for bedding, where bacteria and dustimes can build up between washes. Bamboo bedding will keep bedtime ultra-fresh, night after night.

A natural and eco-friendly choice

Looking for sustainable textiles for children is becoming more of a priority for parents. The more we can choose eco-friendly products and make them part of our everyday lifestyles, the better it is for our environment. Bamboo is one of the world’s most sustainable resources, making it a wonderful natural and eco-friendly choice. The natural fabric is far kinder on kid’s skin and the kindest choice for our planet. Bamboo grows up to four feet daily and is naturally biodegradable, nourishing and sustaining the Earth. Choosing brands that are OEKO-TEX 100 certified will ensure your fabric is free from harmful chemicals. To make sure your bamboo bedding and clothing products are the most sustainable choice, choose brands like Panda. We provide an eco-friendly production process from the forest to the front door, making every purchase something to smile about.
