Ayurvastra – Fabrics with a healing touch
Aug '10
Kerala, the state on the southern most tip of India has a rich culture for rejuvenation therapies for which people from India as well as foreign lands flock to the state. However, one of the therapies not so well-known to the outside world and being practiced since a long time is the use of clothing for curing and preventing health related problems, which is called Ayurvastra.

The fabric is made from natural fibres and then it is blended with special herbs and oils. When the clothing made from the fabric comes in contact with the body, the body loses toxins and the metabolism is enhanced and helps reinstate the balance in the body and reinforce the immune system.

The clothing made from these fabrics is supposed to help cure and prevent a wide range of ailments like, rheumatism, skin infections, hypertension, asthma, diabetes, psoriasis, hypertension, asthma and arthritis. It is more appealing to foreigners, mainly because of the eco-friendliness of the fabric.

Giving details to fibre2fashion, Mr.Sujeev, CEO of Kairali Exports said, “Ayurvastra Means Ayurvedic + Vastra and a fabric on which ayurveda is applied is called Ayurvastra, which is also 100 percent organic. In Ayurvastra, the shades are made using natural ayurvedic herbs and plants which are 100 percent free from toxic chemicals”.

He added by saying, “Only organic cotton, silk, wool, linen, coir and hemp are used to make ayurvastra so there will be no pesticide or chemicals present in the fabric or clothing. Fabrics are infused with ayurvedic medicine to blend its properties into the fabrics and to ensure that the fabric retains those properties for a long time, we follow a natural gumming technology”.

He continued by saying, “Ayurvastra has ability to prevent various diseases. The continuous use of ayurvastra along with ayurvedic medicines can prevent various diseases, which has been tested in Trivandrum Government Ayurvedic College and it was found that ayurvastra was very effective for skin and other diseases”.

When asked as to what happens when the body comes in contact with the Ayurvastra, he said, “Whenever anyone wears an ayurvastra, an ayurvedic environment is created around the body and when the fabric touches the skin, the ayurvedic properties enters in to the blood stream through the skin and the metabolism is enhanced and the patient is relieved from the diseases, if he uses the ayurvastra continuously along with other ayurvedic medicines.
