Manufacturing process mainstay of eco-friendly fabric

May '08
Textile industry is putting a lot of focus in use of organic fibre. But it also has to be understood that it is practically not possible to process all natural materials in eco-friendly manner.

As of now little attention is being given to manufacturing process, which can prove to be the mainstay towards maintaining ecological balance.

There is a dire need to innovate in the dyeing process which can help in reducing scarce water resources or using eco-friendly materials when processing fabrics.

A good example of the same is the initiative taken by Cotton Inc to recycle old worn out denim for a better purpose. The old jeans are recycled in to insulated material to keep out the heat from homes.

The core issue that again arises is that often denim contains harmful chemicals. This boils down to improving the process at the manufacturing stages for an eco-friendly garment.

Certificates are being provided by a few organizations like Control Union, IMO and JOCA, but again for the purposes of auditing and monitoring universal standards are yet to be set up. Consumers in the future may also expect to be provided relevant data on tags.

Central textiles has made a beginning by developing a fabric which has nearly 30-40 percent lower twist and saves on energy consumption at the same time. The absorption properties are better and during the processing stage lead to increase in colour yields by nearly 30 percent.
