Oddly, bamboo clothing isn’t that popular in Singapore. I hardly ever see it! So I was pretty chuffed when I spotted Zhai, which had a little exhibition stall at Shaw House, right in the middle of the city.
Their bamboo clothing feels like liquid silk, and come in soft neutral colours. They are PERFECT for every day wear, as yoga clothing, and as maternity wear.
I bought the Mens polo shirt for Chris, in basic black. It’s the same polo shirt material as, say, Ralph Lauren.. just ridiculously soft. It’s thin and breathable, and sits really well the shoulders 🙂
Their Milk yogurt hand cream is doubling-up for me as a foot cream as well. It smells v yummy and is a rich mousse texture so it feels really moisturizing but isn’t oily on me.
Their Bamboo sun skirt is, by far, the best item IMHO. It’s so insanely soft and flowy! I love the swish when I wear it and it pairs well with my Alannah Hill tops since it’s a pretty ballet pink. It also comes in a dove grey, and black (which my girl friend bought).
I also ordered on their online website (for a mere $29 inclusive of free shipping!) the Bamboo halter dress. It’s just as insanely soft as the skirt, but a more formal look since it works well as a cocktail dress. I never ever wear full black, so I could barely recognise my own body in it 😉 I think I will accessorize it with brightly coloured jewellery. ‘Cos for the price, I couldn’t give it up!
I’m planning to go to their larger store at Haji Lane, because I heard they also stock Bamboo shorts, and I want to try out this Bamboo v-neck top that I’m eyeing.
Hey, I figure these clothes work well now, and will take me through my next pregnancy, right 😛
