What are wristbands?

Wearing jewellery that encircles the wrist is an ancient practice. Latin and Greek traditions have incorporated specific materials into their bracelet craftsmanship, such as ribbons and stones, to serve important purposes over hundreds of years. Fast-forwarding to present day finds a new twist to such pieces of apparel with a massive shift in their look and function.
Strips worn on the wrist or lower forearm are known as wristbands. Often worn like a bracelet-like-band, similar to that of a wristwatch, it has been a popular fashion statement in mid-teen culture since the 1980’s.

Why wear wristbands?

Ok so now we know the​ history of wristbands and what they are. Why should we wear them? Well,​ people are finding more and more of their own reasons​​ to wear them. As the wearing of wristbands has increased dramatically in recent times, but it is important to know that they are not just worn for fun and fashion. Their colours and text (if any) can support a cause, raise awareness, and show solidarity for an organisation or a sports team.
Another type of wristbands serves​ as sweatbands which are primarily used to wipe sweat from around the wrists or the forehead during long exchanges of a sports game. For a tennis player who ignores the importance of a wristband in a match, sweat can be a disastrous factor. It may result in mishandling of a racquet from sweaty hands causing them to lose a point to their opponent. To keep sweat from flowing along the arms to the palms of your hand, remember to pay a visit to PandaBare for the best kind of wristbands.

Why Bamboo?

From the evergreen perennial plants of the grass family, Poaceae comes bamboo which is said to be originated in Chinese plateaus. The bamboo fabric is the most exquisite: soft, natural and sustainable. It is one of the most breathable fabrics and is about 40 percent more absorbent than traditional cotton which allows it to get rid of moisture and dampness fast.

The most eco-friendly fabric on the planet also happens to be hypoallergenic. It is less likely to cause an allergic reaction to sensitive persons who suffer from year-round allergies. The antibacterial properties of bamboo make s your wristbands more odour-resistant , no matter how much you sweat. You can definitely get multiple wears out of it without over-washing and having to see your band lose its form and shape.
