Introducing: The World's Softest Sheets! August 05 2016, 0 Comments
Announcing bamboo sheets, made from 100% viscose from bamboo! You spend nearly eight hours a day sleeping. You might as well sleep in the world’s softest sheets.
Sourcing high quality, durable bamboo products is challenging. On our search for quality bamboo sheets, we encountered a barrage of manufacturers promising “better quality” sheets than the next guy. The reality we discovered was: quality bamboo sheets are hard to find. Many companies boast “high quality” bamboo sheets that are a blend of microfibers and bamboo instead of 100% viscose from bamboo.These blended sheets sell for less than those made entirely from viscose bamboo but are noticeably rougher to the touch, and lack the defining properties that make bamboo sheets so desirable. Blended sheets didn’t pass our comfort tests.
Here’s what makes bamboo sheets made from 100% viscose from bamboo so special:
- Moisture wicking: a not-so-fun fact is that humans can release up to a pound of sweat a night. Many people find that viscose from bamboo fibers actually whisk moisture from your skin, ensuring that you stay calm, comfortable, and clean while you rest.
- Ultimate Softness: viscose bamboo fibers are naturally long, unlike cotton, and don’t have to be “bunched” together when sewn to create sheets. The result is that even the lowest thread count bamboo sheets are far softer than the highest thread count cotton sheets. Having thoroughly examined numerous types of sheets, we can confidently say, sheets made from 100% viscose from bamboo are the world’s softest sheets (this isn't a marketing joke, they really are the softest sheets we've ever encountered).
Once we got our hands on 100% viscose from bamboo sheets and put these features to the test, we decided these were the only sheets worth offering our customers. Our sheet sets come in five elegant colors, fit double, queen, king, and california king beds, and include 1 fitted sheet, 1 flat sheet, and 2 pillowcases. We hope you’ll find them worth the price, and so fantastic that they change the way you think about bedding. Shop Bamboo Supply Co. sheets →

Keeping it local in Chicago May 23 2016, 0 Comments
Bamboo Supply Co. was born and bred in Chicago, and we like to keep our business as local as possible. So when moving our product warehouse and shipping partnership home to the Windy City became an option, we didn’t hesitate.
We’re excited to announce our newest partnership with fellow Chicago startup, ShipBob. As of May 17, 2016, Bamboo Supply Co. now leverages ShipBob’s warehouse and shipping capabilities. The switch has been seamless so far, and we anticipate a continued smooth transition. As always, we’re proud to support the local startup community, and our partnership with ShipBob is just the beginning of bigger and better things to come for Bamboo Supply Co.

Did Someone Say "Gift Box"? November 12 2015, 0 Comments
Give bamboo to yourself, your loved ones, or that neighbor you never know what to get. Boxes feature curated items eloquently packaged in a branded gift box within your shipment, making it perfectly giftable.
We're very excited to launch our first set of gift boxes (yes, more are on the way). We think this is a great, fun way to purchase bamboo products. We've taken the liberty of organizing what goes in the box for you. Simply choose the box that suits your the person to whom your gifting and enjoy.
Freedom Sock Box:
a collection of our not-so-traditional socks. This box is for those who dare to stand up the mundane, outdated footwear traditions that have plagued society for too long. Click here for more details.
Chairman of the Board Sock Box:
featuring only those socks a true boss can wear. The only thing missing from this box is a $10,000 rolex, and the only reason we don’t include is because we’re not an authorized dealer. Click here for more details.
Fitness Sock Box:
if you’re a fitness freak, you need this box. This box provides 8-pairs of our bamboo ankle socks. These socks are high performing, sweat absorbing machines that feel like cashmere. You’ll never want to work out without them. Click here for more details.
Just the basics for those willing to venture down the bamboo path. This box features one bamboo t-shirt, boxer briefs, and a 2-pack of socks. If you were to wear all three items at the same time, you’d officially be the softest person on the planet. That’s how soft bamboo is. Click here for more details.
We’re looking to add more gift boxes. Reach out us email@example.com with your suggestions for our next box.
