We’ve all heard about bamboo underwear being bandied around in the sustainable clothing world. However, did you know that the bamboo panties we think we’re buying might not be exactly what they claim to be? In actual fact, most of those ‘bamboo’ panties out there are actually rayon or viscose made from bamboo fiber.
Despite this, there are some brands out there who make good quality women’s bamboo knickers. Let’s take a look at some of our favorites!
