Anthony Abis, Managing Director
We call him Cedar Wood, after his resilient nature. This guy never stops!
Ever the entrepreneur, Anthony and his enthusiasm knows no bounds. His mission is to share Got Wood.
He says: “Get in the ring. It’s better to experience life for yourself rather than to sit on the fence and live your life through other people’s experiences.”
Anthony discovered the luxurious, silky bamboo fabric when he was sourcing towels for his existing company, UK Clobber Ltd.
He loved the feeling of the bamboo next to his skin. Researching the material further, he was impressed by its special properties: being antibacterial, sustainable, and dispersing moisture. It is also extremely comfortable (and let’s face it, when we’re talking about covering up the most important part of our body, this really matters).
It was then that he recognized that there was a gap in the market for a fashionable, brash underwear range. But what to call it? “Got Wood” of course! And so the unique brand was born.
Got Wood is all about fashion meeting nature – an innovative brand to inspire and love!
When spun into material, bamboo is incredibly luxurious in texture and weight. It is as soft as silk but with more of a cotton-like feel. Bamboo can absorb three times its weight in water and removes moisture from the skin so it can evaporate. For this reason, clothing made of bamboo fibre is ideal worn next to the skin, as sportswear, underwear, and clothing specifically for an active lifestyle.
Bamboo is a sustainable plant, which means that it replenishes itself rapidly and does not require special conditions to exist. In fact, bamboo is one of the fastest growing plants in the world. They are capable of growing over 100 cm (39 in) per day, due to its unique rhizome-dependent system.
Rhizomes are a horizontal stem and route system which makes plants such as bamboo almost impossible to destroy. Even in the event of a land fire, the underground system would remain unharmed and the bamboo would begin to grow again immediately. Similarly, if a rhizome is cut into pieces, each piece is potentially able to give rise to a new plant. Bamboo thrives in its natural habitat without the need for pesticides or herbicides. As a result, plantations can be kept organic and replanted yearly to replenish stocks.
