Bamboo vs Cotton Fabric

We at NOBI are committed to designing and making sustainable products. When it came time to choose a fabric for our underwear, we knew we wanted to find a material that was comfortable, perfect for the health of your cooch and environmentally friendly.

A huge number of brands out there make their underwear with cotton fabric, which is totally understandable, as cotton has many attractive features AND it's less expensive.

Bamboo and cotton are both popular natural fabrics for underwear, but there are some key advantages that made us choose bamboo for NOBI.

Here's a breakdown of the similarities and differences between bamboo and cotton fabric.


  • Both bamboo and cotton are soft and breathable fabrics that can help regulate body temperature.
  • Both bamboo and cotton are absorbent, but bamboo is generally considered to be better at wicking moisture away from the skin. This is because bamboo fibers are naturally hollow, which allows them to absorb and transport moisture more easily.
  • Bamboo is silkier and feels more comfortable on the skin than cotton fabric. This is because bamboo fibers are naturally smoother and have a more luxurious feel.
  • Bamboo is a more sustainable choice than cotton fabric. Bamboo requires less water and fewer pesticides to grow, making it a more environmentally friendly option.

P.S. If you're worried about the "coochie" thing, don't be. Bamboo fabric is naturally anti-bacterial and hypoallergenic, which means it's less likely to cause irritation or infection. So you can be sure that your NOBI bamboo underwear will keep you feeling fresh and comfortable all day long.
