Mobboa, headquartered in Belgium, has started to sell bamboo-fiber clothing in Europe. They list tee shirts, towels, wash clothes, socks, women's underwear and a shawl amongst the things they offer.

The second two businesses are in California.

Pure Fiber sells bamboo fiber towels in several colors. They offer their products both for retail and wholesale. It looks like they may have plans to sell things like bamboo fiber robes in the future.
