Who is Evamoso?

Eva is our founder's middle name and Moso is the type of bamboo used to make fabric. Although bamboo was where we started our initial journey; our ethos is to incorporate all varieties of sustainably sourced fabrics into our range, whether recycled, natural or man made. We want to make sustainably sourced clothing the new norm. 

Why bamboo?

Bamboo happens to be the fasting growing grass on the planet, growing about a metre each day and spreading rapidly over large areas. The bamboo used for our fabric is planted and grown as a crop – in addition to the naturally growing bamboo that pandas live amongst and eat.

Are chemicals used in the growing of bamboo?

No – bamboo thrives naturally without using any pesticides or fertilisers. In fact, as the bamboo grows it absorbs greenhouse gases.

How does bamboo become a fabric?

Making the bamboo fabric does currently involve a chemical process – multi-phase bleaching, which uses caustic soda. However, research is ongoing to try and find other ways of carrying out this process with less harmful chemicals, and ideally without using any chemicals at all. We are transparent in stating that we use viscose derived from bamboo.

What is recycled polyamide and why do you use it? 

We use a type of fabric that is derived from ECONYL®; which is sourced from our factory in Italy. This fabric is made up of 78% recycled polyamide and 22% elastane. Nylon waste from oceans and landfills around the world is transformed into ECONYLl® regenerated nylon. This can then be recycled, regenerated and remoulded again and again.

Alongside the benefits of using regenerated nylon for environmental reasons, we have also chosen this specific fabric composition for the benefits it gives our consumers:

  • Exceptional recovery power
  • Soft, non see-through and breathable
  • Pilling and abrasions resistant
  • UV protective (UPF 50+)
  • Ensures the best muscular compression to help reducing lactic acid and promoting a faster recovery after sport activity
