No one would like to eat a bowl of pesticides drenched food. Then why wear clothing doused in chemicals?


Centuries before people use to live in harmony with nature and believed in giving even better environment for their coming generations. Now, people have crossed all limits dominated by the voracity of luxuries, benefits and money. This is taking a serious toll on the environment, and on the lives of all living beings in the planet.


The 'Chemical Cocktail' of Clothing:


When considering a healthy lifestyle, fabric is the first thing that comes to mind. Synthetic fabrics' teeming with chemicals and dyes pose severe health threats. Synthetic fibers makes the skin uncomfortable due to the presence of toxins in them. From towels to bed linens, and clothes they are all-pervading in our everyday life. Apart from the potential health hazards to humans, these synthetic fibers also leach into the environment causing serious damages to soil, air, ground water, and other living beings around us.


The Environment Shield Organization of US has declared that seven out of the top fifteen pesticides are used for growing conventional cotton, and are regarded as the most environment polluting pesticides. On the contrary, organic cotton is cultivated using untreated GMO seeds, and by adopting biological based growing practices. A beneficial habitat planting method is adopted which prevents pests, thereby eliminating the usage of toxic chemicals.


Natural Dyes Vs Synthetic Dyes:


Synthetic dyes involve many carcinogenic chemicals and effluents that are discharged into the river or atmosphere causing pollution. Chemicals used on fabrics can contain allergens, carcinogens and mutagens. Dyes that are used for special effects on textiles such as flame retardant, stain resistant etc., are likely to create health problems. Natural dyes are obtained from renewable sources, and are good to skin. They are bio-degradable and eco-friendly. Natural dyes are enriched with medicinal and curative properties, and impart healing qualities to the wearer of the fabric dyed with them. They save energy as they are not made from petroleum products. Furthermore, they provide rural employment, and also preserve traditional craftsmanship.

Life with natural fibers':

Acrylic, polyester, nylon, rayon, triacetate, acetate and other fabrics labeled as stain & wrinkle resistant, and moth repellent will have ample amount of chemicals in their making. These fabrics can be avoided, and replaced with natural fabrics like wool, silk, cotton, linen, cashmere, and hemp. Organic and herbal clothing is more preferable for people who are very sensitive to chemicals. Researches on people with multiple chemical sensitivities reveal that organic clothing is essential in reducing their exposure to toxic chemicals.

C:\Documents and Settings\megha\Desktop\article\Organic clothing.JPG'Herbalfab' one stop for Eco-friendly & Sustainable fabrics:


Herbalfab is the brain child of Mr. Prashant Balar, who started his career in the electronics, and IT industry. His aspiration to accomplish something satisfactory in life made him to quit the industry and take up his family business of conventional cotton shirting. Here, Prashant happened to come across the destruction caused by harmful chemicals during various stages of conventional textile industries. This motivated him to initiate Herbalfab.


Herbalfab has developed a unique technique to dye with flowers, fruits, roots etc. Turmeric, myraballams, onion, kesu and dhavadi flowers, and natural indigo are used for preparing the natural dyes. This not only prevents water pollution due to replacement of petrochemical dyes with vegetable dyes/natural dyes, but also imparts medicinal value to cloth as many herbs used for dyeing are having high medicinal value.

The company has developed an expertise in vegetable dyeing the woven. Herbalfab also have a range of other Eco friendly fabrics like khadi that is both handspun and hand-woven, non violent silk, Organic denim etc.


When talking about the market demand for the fabric, Mr. Prashant Balar expresses his intention to focus more on the US, and European markets. He states, "Those are established markets for organic garments and that is where I intend to supply my fabrics". He believes that the demand for organic clothing in India is limited to spas, ayurveda centres, skin clinics, and fitness clubs. Herbalfab aspires to makes its presence across the user categories. "I would gauge the domestic market and accordingly pump in money to establish a full-fledged unit" he plans.
