Kora, known for its expertise in crafting technical apparel with natural fibers, is expanding its bamboo apparel range with the introduction of an Activewear Capsule: comfortable everyday tops and leggings and pants for women and men.
Since its founding, kora has crafted all its own fabrics, a process of research, development and testing to provide comfort, performance and hand feel. Kora Bamboo was introduced in June with a range of technical fit base layers.
The Activewear Capsule expands the range with styles for active people who prize comfort and versatility, as each piece offers natural cooling, breathability and sweat-wicking properties of bamboo with exceptional stretch and unrestricted movement.
The Activewear Capsule offers more relaxed fit pieces that can be worn alone or layered, and standout pieces include tank tops, a midweight zip hoodie, a crewneck sweatshirt, track pants and leggings.
The eco-friendly fabric uses Forest Stewardship Council (FCS)-certified bamboo as the foundation, adding spandex for the right amount of stretch and comfort. Kora Bamboo Collection features two midweight fabrics (220 gsm and 270 gsm) that are soft, durable and breathable and wick away sweat to keep the body cooler as temperatures rise.
Kora Bamboo is a versatile choice for everyday use, transitioning between activities and climates, and the fabric provides a second skin feel that hugs the body and moves with the individual.
For people with sensitive skin, bamboo is an ideal non-itch, plant-based alternative to wool.
As with all kora garments and accessories, each purchase of the Bamboo Collection helps kora support Tibetan nomads adapt to the threats posed by climate change and rural-urban migration.
With FSC certification, kora ensures the bamboo used in the new collections comes from responsibly managed plantations, promoting forest conservation and the well-being of local communities.
The bamboo layers have undergone rigorous testing to confirm the UPF-50 properties, offering enhanced sun protection while enjoying outdoor activities.
