bamboo and organic cotton buff
Washable bamboo and organic cotton neck buff | Soft reusable neck gaiter | Sustainable face covering
Our bamboo and organic cotton neck buff (neck gaiter or tube scarf) is machine washable, double layered and fits closely to your face. We make each buff from sustainable fabric that is soft, lightweight and breathable. This fabric is ideal if you have sensitive skin. The bamboo element has some antimicrobial activity (against bacteria and fungi) and naturally wicks moisture away from the skin. Because of these properties, this fabric is really good if you have sensitive skin.
The fabric has 4-way stretch. Therefore, our buffs can also be used as head bands, hair bands, ear muffs and neck scarves. this means that, even if you buy them for the pandemic, they will also be useful afterwards too for other functions.
As with all our products, we hand-make these neck buffs ourselves in our workshop in Nottingham, England.
46% Bamboo, 46% Organic Cotton, 8% Elastane
Bamboo and organic cotton grow without artificial fertilisers and pesticides. Our fabric comes from a textile company, called Kadeks, based in Izmir, Turkey. This company produces sustainable textiles and they care about supporting sustainable textile projects.
Kadeks monitor every step of the supply chain. They are also certified by the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS), meaning that: they meet the standards to be classified as ‘organic’; they do not use toxic substances or dyes during manufacturing; and they produce the fabric in a mill that enforces strict social and environmental standards, treating their employees and the earth with respect.
Our bamboo and organic cotton neck buff is machine washable! Wash regularly to keep safe during the pandemic.
Neck buffs/neck gaiters have found a new popularity as face coverings during the pandemic. Because they are so convenient to wear and make, people may be more likely to wear them.
*NOTE* The World Health Organisation (WHO) states that masks are only effective when used in combination with frequent hand-cleaning. The CDC recommends cloth face masks for the general public as it might prevent people spreading the virus if they are carrying the virus but are asymptomatic (have no symptoms). So if you wear them, please WEAR THEM RESPONSIBLY.
The CDC states that cloth face coverings should:
“-fit snugly but comfortably against the side of the face
-include multiple layers of fabric
-allow for breathing without restriction
-be machine washed regularly and machine dried without damage or change to shape
-Individuals should be careful not to touch their eyes, nose, and mouth when removing their mask and wash hands immediately after removing.”
