Bamboo T-shirts? The better alternative is Mellowood®
We know your reasons for buying a bamboo shirt like no other. The Undiemeister team brought the bamboo shirt to the Netherlands and introduced it to the Dutch people. You want a wonderfully soft T-shirt with optimum ventilation, that insulates well and absorbs and wicks moisture quickly. A bamboo T-shirt does all that, so we get that. We practically invented the bamboo T-shirt. But aren't you forgetting something?
The step up from bamboo is Mellowood®️
We raved about the bamboo shirt for a long time, there's no doubt about that. But we also discovered a few drawbacks, which we were becoming increasingly disappointed with.
For example, bamboo shirts shrink a lot, much more than cotton does. And the quality of a bamboo shirt varies a lot, sometimes the fabric made from the bamboo fibre is better than the next lot.
In addition, bamboo does not retain its colour as well, so it fades after frequent washing. And it pills, this is especially true for bamboo T-shirts. And that doesn't help to ensure that your bamboo T-shirt stays beautiful for a long time.
So we felt that this could be improved on and with our knowledge and experience of the bamboo shirt we went in search of the next step: at least the same positive properties as a bamboo T-shirt, but without pilling, with much less shrinkage and a colour that stays beautiful.

A Mellowood®️ T-shirt beats the bamboo T-shirt
And we did it! After more than a year of research and testing, we created a fabric that beats bamboo T-shirts on all fronts. Instead of bamboo, we use the world-renowned TENCEL™ and combined it with organic cotton, instead of standard cotton. The result is astonishing, the best fabric for T-shirts out there.
In short, the discoverers of the bamboo shirt have found the next step up: T-shirts made of Mellowood®️. And exclusively for sale at Undiemeister®️.
