The Bamboo Clothing Company’s story began with two middle-aged fathers and their young daughters trying to stay entertained during a blizzard in a California mountain cabin.
While playing games to pass the time, they hatched a plan to raise money for San Francisco’s homeless population by selling tie-dyed socks. A few years later, the same friends teamed up again to create a lasting business retailing tie-dyed socks, hats, boxers, themal long sleeve shirts, sleep shirts and custom items.
Paul McGovern produced the first pair of socks using environmentally-friendly bamboo fabric and the team quickly realized they had a winning product. Bamboo fabric naturally pulls in moisture, keeping skin dry. The material is also anti-bacterial and unusually comfortable, even for people who are sensitive to other natural fibers.
As the company originated from a desire to show kindness and compassion to homeless people, they extend the same philosophy of kindness and respect to their customers, employees, vendors and to the earth.
