The reasons you are looking for a bamboo t-shirt
We know your motivation to buy a bamboo t-shirt like no other. The Undiemeister team brought the bamboo shirt to the Netherlands and introduced it to you and all other Dutch people. You want a wonderfully soft t-shirt that ventilates optimally, insulates well and absorbs and wicks away moisture quickly. A bamboo t-shirt does all that, so we get it. We practically invented the bamboo t-shirt. But aren’t you forgetting about something?
Mellowood® is the next step after bamboo
Of course we have been positive about the bamboo shirt for a very long time, need doubt about that. But we also saw a few drawbacks, drawbacks that started to annoy us more and more. For starters, bamboo shirts shrink quite a bit, much more than cotton does. And the quality of a bamboo shirt varies a lot, sometimes the fabric made out of the bamboo fiber is better than other times. Furthermore, bamboo does not hold its color as well, meaning that after washing it several times, the colors fade. And let’s talking about pilling, because this happens often with a bamboo t-shirt. Too often, and that doesn’t help to ensure that your bamboo t-shirt stays attractive for a long time. So we thought we could do better and took our knowledge and experience of the bamboo shirt and went looking for the next step: to find the same positive properties as a bamboo t-shirt, but without pilling, with much less shrinkage and a color that stays beautiful.
A Mellowood® shirt beats the bamboo shirt
And we did it. After more than a year of research and testing we came up with a fabric made that beats a bamboo shirt on all fronts. Instead of bamboo, we use the world-renowned TENCEL™, which we combined with organic cotton. The result is amazing, the best fabric for t-shirts there is.
In short: the people who discovered the bamboo shirt have found the next step: T-shirts made from Mellowood®. Of course these are exclusively for sale at your Undiemeister®.
