Productions Gets Us Hooked on Bamboo
was a relatively good kid, and never complained about much.
I played in the dirt, sang at the top of my lungs,
and had a generally carefree kid-a-riffic experience. However,
stands out in the brain-database of bad memories. Ranked right
next to the embarrassing 'peed in my pants' episode in Kindergarten,
is the pair of pants that I was forced to wear (and subsequently
probably peed in.)
mother was a lazy, yet practical shopper. Every year the thick
JC Penney catalog would arrive, and she would systematically
pick out every scratchy, itchy, hot and dark colored 100% polyester
item made. "Durable, easy to wash, and the dark won't
show the stains!",
proclaim. I still break out into a panicked sweat when I think
about those dark blue stretchy polyster pants that would always
appear in my closet before every school year.
the day I was given access to wheels, I have never worn polyester
fabric again. And, 20+ years later, I still won't wear anything
other than natural fabrics. Cotton has been my preferred choice,
until I was
introduced to quality bamboo fabrics. Although bamboo is still
controversial to some 'greenies', I have decided to right
here, right now, say by the powers of all that is soft
and natural, bamboo fabrics are a good thing. I would like
to add for the record, that bamboo is grown without pesticides,
and can be recycled, incinerated or digested in sewage.
from Hooked Productions sent
us some shirts to try out made from 70% bamboo and 30% organic
cotton. I've tried clothing
made from bamboo fabrics before,
and although the fabric was soft and almost 'slippery' to the
touch, bamboo can be a bit sheer. However, Hooked Productions
is soft beyond belief, but is not sheer and 'ridgey' like other
fabrics can be. The shirts hang well, and feels incredible.
Once you try the bamboo/cotton combo, you will soon become

Productions also has the look, and the motto down pat. Not
only do they offer up some amazingly creative
designs and prints, but their trademarked slogan is 'live the
life you love love the life you live'. What other advice do you
need, or should one give to others in life?
designs and colors are strong and balanced, and have prices
that are very fair.
