From furniture to biodegradable wipes, the humble bamboo has been made into all kinds of household products. But did you know that it can also be made into clothing?
Bamboo lyocell in particular has been a popular option for clothing in recent years. Made from crushed bamboo pulp, bamboo lyocell has made a name for itself for being sustainable. Bamboo itself is a renewable resource as it grows quickly and requires little water for its growth (especially compared to cotton). Some might say, however, that where bamboo lyocell really sets itself apart is the manufacturing process--99% of chemicals used during the process are recycled.

Bambino x Little Lads & Lasses
As both Bambino and Little Lads & Lasses believe that it's important to take care of the environment for our future generations, we've decided to work together to provide your little ones with the most affordable, comfortable and sustainable baby clothing subscription we could come up with!
Have We Tried Their Clothing Ourselves? Of Course.
Bambino founder Suk Yee tried their clothing on her own children for a month and here are some highlights!
Material is Very Smooth and Cooling
"My babies heat up very easily. They'll sometimes perspire even with the air-conditioning on. I noticed that with the clothing from Little Lads & Lasses, they tend not to sweat so easily at night."
Pieces are Very Functional
"The pieces we tried were designed well and had very useful elements: zippers, in-built mittens, foot covers with non-slip beads etc. The reverse zippers go all the way down to the foot so you don't have to struggle to get your baby's foot out during diaper changes, which is very, very useful when you need to change their diaper at night!"
Colours are Gender-Neutral
"The clothing comes in gender-neutral colours like grey, burgundy and cream. This makes it even more sustainable because you don't have to worry about whether they're suitable for your baby."
Material Dries Super Fast
"Little Lads & Lasses recommends that the clothing doesn't go into the dryer. But honestly, they didn't need the dryer. It was quite rainy all of last month, but the bamboo lyocell always dried very quickly, even when just hung out to air dry."
So How Does it Work?
For our current subscribers, we'll be including 1-2 pieces of Little Lads & Lasses clothing into your subscription every month. If you like what you get, let us know, and we'll work on expanding the collaboration!
