Gandhian produces eco-friendly silk sarees

State of Tamil Nadu, India, has witnessed the production of two novel silk sarees. The extraction process of silk used to manufacture these sarees provides the exclusivity. The silk yarn for these sarees was extracted from cocoons, without killing the worm. Hence, it is named as 'Ahimsa Sari'.

These eco-friendly sarees have been produced by using 'eco-friendly method of manufacturing mulberry silk (Bombyx Mori) yarn', which is a very complex process. Kusuma Rajaiah of Secunderabad, a Gandhian, has received patent from the government for this process on May 10, 2006.

CEO of Arnibased SKP Silks Sarees, B Gopinath has signed a MoU with Kusuma Rajaiah on July 13, 2010, under which the company will manufacture these sarees for five years in the state, informed Gopinath, while displaying sarees to media professionals.

Gopinath is the only person enjoying such an agreement with country's patent holder of Ahimsa sarees. In tandem with this, a person from Mumbai also approached Rajaiah for such a pact. But, Rajaiah refused to get in to an agreement for reasons best known to him.

One cannot easily differentiate between conventional silk saree and Ahimsa Silk saree, which would cost more than the prior, because of the intricate process involved in it.
