The Limca Book of Records has registered a new record for producing saris from 25 different kinds of natural fibres like banana stem, cotton, bamboo, jute, pineapple, aloe vera, hemp, sea grass, recycled silk, flax, silk, lemon grass, wool and messa fibre.

The achievement has been registered in name of weavers of Anakaputhur, a town 20kms to the south of Chennai in India.

Not only are these saris ecological but even reasonably priced.

Anakaputhur weavers have been experimenting with several natural fibres like pineapple, silk, banana, jute and aloe vera. In 2009, they succeeded in producing fabrics from banana stem fibre, while in 2010; they came up with fabrics produced from bamboo fibre.
