Herbalfab, all set to carve a niche in the Indian soil

The TexFusion, which held recently in Ahmedabad at Maskati Market Mahajan & New Cloth Market, has been able to bring together all the buyer and seller from the surrounding vicinity under one roof.

More than 40 companies took part in the two day event, which ended on March 26. Prominent participants were Chiripal Industries Ltd, Anjani Synthtics Ltd, Aarvee Denim, Nakoda Fashion.

What caught most peoples eye was the booth of Herbalfab. Prashant Ballar, an Engineering graduate in his early 20's, launched his herbal fabrics, Herbalfab, here at TexFusion.

Ballar, an environment conscious person, not only promotes organic cotton but also introduced herbs to the manufacturing process of environment-friendly fabric.

In an exclusive interview with Fibre2fashion, Mr Prashant Ballar told, “Organic cotton is produced with fertilizers made from animal and vegetable matter.”

Fabrics made from this are eco-friendly as one third of a pound of lethal chemicals that goes into making of a shirt through modern processing is being avoided in this process.

This fabric has got medicinal properties therefore allergies, septic, skin cancer and bad transpiration can also be avoided.”

Further, the young man divulged, “I use flowers, roots, and various other medicinally rich herbs like turmeric, indigo, onion skin, heena, sandal wood, apple, tea, neem, kesuda, aritha, anar skin for dyeing and printing of fabric.These are natural bleaching agents and have properties that are retained by the fabric.

I proudly say that my products can be utilized as medicinal textiles, yoga fabrics. I would like to introduce these as fashion and casual wear, baby garments, intimate wears, for home textiles like curtains, bed sheets, towels, pillow covers.

"And I am sure my organic fashion garments will be a hit in the Indian soil as well as in abroad as I plan to export them European and US markets.”
