Introducing sustainable clothing that’s a little different... ideal for yoga lovers, fitness enthusiasts and comfort-seekers alike.
Based in Plymouth, BAM Clothing have been pioneering the way for sustainable and contemporary fashion since 2006 and are now the go-to brand for oh-so-soft clothing... made from Bamboo!
David Gordon - founder and CEO of BAM Clothing - describes himself as an adventurer; he has successfully completed a man-haul expedition across Greenland with a team of Gurkahs and recently held the titles of World Masters Games Pole Vault Champion and European masters pole vault champion!
This experience, combined with his long held interest in the future of the planet, brought about a year long search for a viable and environmentally sustainable business idea. Something that might actually make a difference.
As a P.E student at Loughborough University in 1988, David started selling T-Shirts to finance his ‘world tour’. It was his natural entrepreneurship, alongside his dedicated passion for the environment, that inspired David to start BAM Clothing in 2006.
BAM Clothing was the first bamboo clothing company in Europe
What began as a collection of base-layers and undergarments for active individuals with a passion for 'living life to the max', has grown organically to satisfy customer demand. With the lines blurring between fitness and leisure-wear, the designs are more relevant and popular than ever.
Ideal for both men and women, BAM produces two seasonal collections a year: spring & summer and autumn & winter. Aside from the comfort and performance criteria of using bamboo, it is also the most sustainable crop on the planet. Did you know that it's three times more absorbent than cotton?
BAM Clothing are leading the way in contemporary, sustainable style
Ultimately, David has a very clear ambition for the company - for it to be impact positive. He wants the business to leave a positive footprint on the world, even working closely with select experts in the field who are supporting BAM to shape their impact positive strategy.
David created a label that he himself would buy, wearing his brand day in and day out. He was – and still is – motivated to show the world that you can build a successful business whilst taking a totally environmentally friendly and ethical approach.
With such a huge - yet highly refined - range of super soft, flattering and stylish garments, it's no wonder that customers buy from BAM time and time again.
'We want to be the favourite brand of active people with enquiring, discerning minds and a global conscience.'
But it's not just about the clothing. As customers, we like to enjoy the experience of shopping with an independent business. David and his team pride themselves on their award-winning customer service, having receieved a Feefo Gold Service Award; it’s an independent seal of excellence that “recognises businesses for delivering exceptional experiences, rated by real customers”.
From the outset, the BAM team are consistently striving to build something truly special whilst growing organically in the process, without compromising on values.
With the immediate agenda of addressing concerns of sustainability within the clothing industry, BAM want to ensure they are making real changes whilst inspiring individuals to shop more consciously.
'Everyone gets treated fairly and responsibly, from the garment factory workers to the customer. Not forgetting ourselves!'
BAM believe in the pursuit of active health and want to encourage and support others, regardless of age or ability. Their breathable, modern and high-quality pieces are perfect for adventurous, fun and discerning customers... who prioritise their comfort and the wellbeing of our planet.
