Made for the comfortable, earth-friendly consumer or the businessperson who wants branded clothing and masks that shout sustainability, Kasi Bamboo is a dream come true.
The Canadian clothing company based in Vancouver, BC, was founded by Kasia Fryklund who took a sharp turn off the road to law school to follow her passion for clothing and product design.
“Kasi Bamboo is based on the belief that clothing should be sustainable, comfortable, and long lasting,” Fryklund says. “A large reason why I chose bamboo, besides its silky feel and that it is easy to care for, is because it is a self-regenerating grass that requires little to no fertilizer, tilling, or pesticides.”
Bamboo is also naturally hypoallergenic, thermal regulating, moisture wicking, and odour and bacteria resistant.
“Before launching my line, I went through dozens of bamboo fabric samples from all over the world until I found the most comfortable and eco-friendly option, ”Fryklund says. “Our fabric is OEKO-TEX 100 Standard certified and sourced from 100% wild, organic bamboo.”
Kasi Bamboo was set to launch early 2020, but when the pandemic hit, the team shifted production to face masks to meet the growing demand.
“We were shocked when in a week we sold out of 300 masks, built up a large waitlist, and were in high demand in high-end retail stores,” Fryklund says. “It all happened very quickly!”
That year, Kasi Bamboo sold and donated over 20,000 bamboo face masks locally and internationally, and the product has become a bestseller on Etsy and in retail stores and galleries across North America. Its clothing has reached all over the world and has been spotted in places like Australia, France, and Nigeria.
“We plan to branch out the brand even further to include all ways we can care for our bodies and the planet, such as lotions, candles, soaps, and other natural/earth-friendly products,” Fryklund says.
“The goal is to leave the world a little better than how I found it and, ultimately, to be a good role model for my three-year-old son.”
On May 1, Kasi Bamboo is launching new additions to the line (tees, hoodies, tank tops, and pants) that were put on hold when the pandemic hit. This May also marks one year in business for Kasi Bamboo.
