Apr '09
Herbal textiles are currently becoming increasingly popular. The herbs used in the dyeing process are cultivated in South East Asian countries like Pakistan, Bangladesh, and India. India has exported organic textiles worth Rs. 50 lakh to US, Europe, and Japan.

Herbal Textile is dyed entirely with herbal extractions, without using any sort of chemicals. This process is different from vegetable dyes.

They posses natural and medicinal value. Each and every herb used has their own unique medicinal value and are used for treating various ailments.

Some of the other herbal dyes are catechu, pomegranate rind, madder, castor oil, sweet basil, lime, wild turmeric, henna, curry leaf tree, aloe and certain herbal fruits, each having their own healing effects.
