Bamboo Bathrobe

That's right, a bamboo bathrobe!

Since it is crazy-cold when we get up in the morning, a bathrobe for me has been on the "list" for awhile. So for my birthday/Valentine's present, Jason and I went on the search for the perfect bathrobe. Our #1 criteria that was that it be made from natural fibers. (There is nothing worse than a polyester/velour robe that gets slimy when wet.) After checking a few stores, we got very lucky and found a fluffy pinkish pale purple Eco-Spa Bamboo robe at Macy's that was perfect for the following reasons:

1. It was on sale -- whoo hoo!

2. It was not just made of natural fibers, but to our surprise, it was made from 70% bamboo and 30% Turkish cotton!

In case you're wondering, "What the heck good is a bamboo robe?" Well, here's the skinny:

The Eco-Spa Bamboo robe is a favored alternative to traditional terry robes because it is four times more absorbent and it has natural antibacterial properties from the bamboo.

70% naturally grown Bamboo fibers blended with 30% super absorbent Turkish Cotton.

Bamboo grows naturally without the use of pesticides. It is a natural cellulose fiber which is converted into yarns without the addition of chemicals, and is 100% biodegradable in soil by micro-organism and sunshine, causing no pollution to the environment.

Bamboo is incredibly soft, long wearing bamboo adapts to your body's temperature and wicks away moisture. The fast drying, antibacterial nature of bamboo greatly reduces natural allergens.

Perfect! I love it!

In case you're wondering, "What about Jason, doesn't he need a robe too?" Don't worry, we're going to share it, he looks great in pink! ;-)
