Here you can find the most common question we get on boody.se. If you didn't find the answer to your question, please don't hesitate to contact ud using the contact form.
How should I care for my Boody items?
We recommend that you follow our washing and drying instructions as indicated on the product label or directly printed inside our garments.
How do I wash bamboo clothes?
We recommend a warm machine wash with similar colours, using gentle bio-degradable detergent, followed by drying in the shade. If you need to tumble dry, please use the lowest setting, or set to 'delicates'. Iron on a low setting, do not dry clean.
Helpful tips: Washing Padded Bras
While hand washing is ideal, a gentle machine wash and spin is best to preserve the original aspect of our Padded Shaper Crop Bra. We recommend that you ditch the clothes dryer as the heat will break down any elastics and can simply cause dimpling in your padding. For these reasons, we also recommend that you simply take out removable padding before washing.
Is Boody and bamboo fabric environmentally friendly?We are passionate about having the lowest possible environmental footprint for both our garments and supply chain and are tirelessly re-assessing our processes. While we agree that nothing is perfect and we are always innovating in our approach to sustainability, we absolutely believe that our garments are one of the best options around as they meet the comfort, quality and price that Boody is known and loved for, while still providing the sustainability and health benefits that the 'considered' shopper is looking for.
We are committed to producing high-quality products, with a focus on sustainable materials and practices. Our bamboo is EcoCert certified, which means that Boody's bamboo is grown organically using no fertilisers or pesticides, and without any irrigation – just rainwater.
When it comes to the production process, our yarn is man-made and therefore the fabric is termed a "viscose" and we label all our garments and packaging accordingly. A chemical solution is used in the manufacturing process, however, there are no residual chemicals remaining in the fabric after this process. Our yarn is Oeko-Tex 100 certified and carries the "Confidence in Textiles" accreditation which verifies that the finished fibre has been tested for any chemicals or toxins that may be harmful.
This process ensures that the finished garment contains no trace of chemicals that pose any health threat. This global standard is issued Oeko-Tex (International Association for Research and Testing in the Field of Textile Ecology), with headquarters in Zurich, Switzerland. Oeko-Tex is a globally recognised program for testing textile raw materials at all stages of production.
We ensure that each of our manufacturing facilities has WRAP certification which accredits our factories as offering safe and legal working conditions. Our production facilities do not use child labour, do not discriminate, comply with all environmental regulations, pay fair wages and respect workers rights and most importantly do not tolerate exploitation or discrimination. Learn about WRAP's 12 principles for more information about our accreditation.
Our factories also have ISO 14000 Certification which means they are environmentally aware and recycle all waste and use closed-loop systems when dyeing fabric so that no polluted water is released into the environment. In addition, our dyes are low salt and eco-friendly.
Our packaging uses recycled paper and our inks are vegetable-based. At Boody, we believe that the vast array of environmental benefits of the bamboo crop as well as the unique properties of the fabric itself are beneficial to both the environment and all of us who inhabit it.
Another important aspect is that the Boody philosophy is around "slow fashion", where our customers are encouraged not to buy the latest colour or fad, but rather invest in Boody essentials that will last them a long time and not become landfill after one season.
Boody garments will decompose quickly (only the bamboo viscose – not the nylon and elastane, which is a small proportion).
Bamboo viscose is made using caustic soda, however, the water is certified recycled and does not get dumped into the environment.
Being seamfree, our garments use less yarn and therefore save wasted fabric.
We constantly attempt to improve our environmental performance and are passionate and committed to making our world a better, healthier place.

How much contact do you have with your factories?
We personally visit our factories at least twice each year to ensure that our high requirements for quality, environmental sustainability and social welfare are met. Your satisfaction is at the core of what we do. That's why our quality assurance team maintains daily contact with our manufacturing partners to ensure we deliver garments that meet your expectations.
Where are Boody products manufactured?
We spent many months searching for factories globally with the rights skills and equipment required to create Boody products, but also meet our strong requirements for sustainable production and ethical manufacturing. We now work closely with a number of manufacturers in China, close to the plantations of the organic bamboo crops we use to make our viscose yarn.
