Bamboo clothing reinvented.
We are Nooboo. We started our adventure while exploring opportunities for high quality bamboo clothing vs regular cotton.
We established partnerships with producers of the highest quality bamboo fiber who are also focusing on a environmental friendly production process.
Our products are designed in Amsterdam, locally harvested near bamboo forests and assembled and produced in Portugal and Indonesia. Keeping quality as our highest goal, whilst keeping a close eye out for the environment and design, we managed to create a product that stands for more comfort, heat regulation, breathability and sustainability.
We choose our suppliers carefully to make sure that the production process is in a closed loop and ethically sourced. Our suppliers are paid a life supporting salary and we focus on going green throughout the entire supply chain including packaging.
Our sweaters, socks and boxer shorts are made from 100% organic bamboo fiber, making the products soft and durable. Our t-shirts and longsleeves are made from 60% organic bamboo fiber and 40% organic cotton. We’ve created the perfect balance between bamboo fiber and organic cotton, with as main goal to produce products with the qualities of bamboo and the firmness of cotton. With this combination we’ve managed to create products that are not only sustainable and good for the environment, but are also the perfect mix of fabric for soft yet strong products made to last.
Welcome to Nooboo!
Breathing and humidity regulating
Our products do not wring the skin or have an uncomfortable fit, on the contrary they let the skin breathe freely. The products also absorb humidity better than cotton or other fabrics. This combination results in optimized comfort and durability! Whether you are wearing our products on a daily basis or breaking a sweat in the gym, you will be amazed with the comfort you’re experiencing.
Antibacterial and odor resistant
Bamboo is one of the plants that is naturally resistant to bacteria’s, making it easy to keep and environmentally friendly to grow. Derived from the plant, bamboo fiber is also naturally resistant to bacteria. As a result of this the fabric is no ground for bacteria to grow on and produce their side effects, such as a nasty smell. No, with bamboo products you will hand first experience an odor repellent fabric.
Hypoallergenic and protective
Bamboo is naturally hypoallergenic, which makes it perfect to wear for people with a sensitive skin or allergies. No more itching and scratching and no more rashes or red spots from wearing a piece of clothing. Next to that bamboo clothing actually protects your skin! It prevents 95% of harmful UV radiation to reach your skin, opposite to 75% prevention that cotton provides. This makes bamboo especially good to wear when you’re out in the sun a lot, or when the sun shines its brightest.
Mixing bamboo fiber and cotton can best be described as the difference between Kashmir to regular wool. It is one of the softest, yet sturdiest, fabrics known to man!
Thermodynamic body regulation
The structure of bamboo fiber is using the principle of thermodynamics, making it cool to wear in the summer and warm to wear in the winter. This makes the products perfect the wear for any type of weather and any type of activity, including athletic activities. You no longer need a winter and summer wardrobe with our products, they are wearable all year round!
Opposed to synthetics with similar qualities of bamboo fiber, bamboo fiber is 100% biodegradable.
Bamboo is a plant that gets all its nutrients and energy from the soil. This means that no (artificial) fertilizers are needed for its optimal growth.
Bamboo only needs sun and natural rainwater to grow. Irrigation is not needed, which makes bamboo one of the few fabrics that is self-supportive. Because of the sustainable nature of bamboo, you save 3500 liters of water per bamboo shirt! 3500 liters of water = 100 showers.
Bamboo is naturally resistant against insects and fungus and can be grown without the use of pesticides.
Bamboo is the fastest growing plant on the planet and grows up to a meter per day. The production harvest of bamboo is 10 times larger than the production harvest of cotton, in the same amount of space. Bamboo stems are cut and harvested, allowing the plant to grow further without replanting. The roots of bamboo stems are holding firmly in the soil. This has a huge impact on soil stability and water drainage.
Bamboo forests produce 30% more oxygen and absorb more carbon dioxide than regular forests. This makes bamboo one of the best plants for the climate.
It is all about change. Changing the fashion industry. Changing the way clothes are produced. Changing the way we feel, while wearing high quality clothes with an sustainable stamp. This is where YOU come in. NOOBOO is a young brand pushing the boundaries. Proving that bamboo is not boring, it is sexy!

Risks and challenges
NOOBOO is fashion, not sportswear. Our T-shirts and longsleeves are also great performance wear for your workout, but they are designed as comfort wear for at home, in the office or your next holiday.
Production delays and unforeseen obstacles are always a risk. However, we have had several test batches and we know our factory and suppliers well. We are very happy with the quality from the samples and test runs and are confident they will be punctual.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
