Bamboo boxers are splinter free hit

Eco-friendly Got Wood underpants are made from more than 90% bamboo

Bamboo boxers are splinter free hit
13 February 2012

Pandas eat its leaves and the Chinese weave it into furniture, but are underpants made from bamboo really the next big thing in eco-friendly clothing?

With its range of colorful designs made from more than 90% bamboo wood, Wild Horse Clothing's Got Wood undies definitely look the part.

Now we know what you’re thinking, bamboo fabric must feel a bit, er, hard.

But surprisingly they are silky smooth to touch, look great on and, after a day's test drive, my crown jewels were mercifully splinter free.

Not only that, they have anti-bacterial properties and even act to disperse moisture from the skin.

That's why the GSN team gives them our panda-friendly seal of approval.
