Grey / Teal Dip-Dye Bamboo T-shirt


Subtlety is the key with this premium bamboo T-shirt. I’ve added a dark turquoise dip-dye, by hand, to the top of the ultra-soft, dark grey naturally sustainable bamboo T-shirt. With subtle black 8Y8 logo screen printed by hand on front chest.

Bamboo fabric demands a whole new way of looking at T-shirt fabric. Bamboo apparel has a natural quality that feels softer than cotton, making it extremely comfortable. Bamboo T-shirts are also machine-washable, hypoallergenic, absorbent, fast drying, and naturally antibacterial, so won't hold odour.

Dip-dye bamboo T-shirt

These bamboo T-shirts completely redefine how comfortable a T-shirt can be. Using only the finest blend of organic cotton and sustainably sourced bamboo. It’s a first for 8Y8, but likely not the last. It’s a new take on the dip-dye design too, requiring each individual T-shirt to be meticulously dyed by hand in multiple stages to achieve a gradual fade from dark teal at the top, to the base grey bamboo T-shirt colour at the bottom. The subtle 8Y8 logo on the chest finishes it off, and with such attention to detail the end result is a perfectly fitting, timeless, eco-friendly bamboo T-shirt that’s fast becoming a favourite.

Why a bamboo T-shirt?

Bamboo is among the fastest growing plants on Earth, growing much more densely than cotton. Consequently the yield from a bamboo crop can often be much greater than that of a similar sized cotton field. Also, due to bamboo’s natural antibacterial agent it requires no pesticides, which together with flood and drought resistance makes for huge savings in resources and environmental impact.

Fabric woven from bamboo yarn is light and softer than the softest cotton. Other benefits include being naturally hypoallergenic, absorbent, fast drying, and naturally antibacterial, so will not hold odour. Bamboo’s thermo-regulating ability will also keep you warmer in the cold and cooler in the heat, out-performing cotton, hemp, wool, and synthetic materials.

As with cotton T-shirts, processing can negate the positive qualities of bamboo. That’s why 8Y8’s bamboo T-shirts carry Fair Wear Foundation and Oeko-Tex certification. That’s also why the dyes and inks used are water based. This ensures the most ethical, lowest environmental impact bamboo T-shirts possible. As with organic cotton, being a natural fibre means bamboo is also 100% biodegradable, so many years down the line when the T-shirts are eventually beyond repair, they can be returned to nourish the Earth.
