Now saris from Aloe Vera fibre!

Nov '09
Aloe Vera, a plant having good medicinal values, which also has been extensively used in cosmetics and medicines, is now being experimented by the weavers in Tamil Nadu to manufacture colourful saris.

Weavers in Anakaputhur in Chennai in the state of Tamil Nadu are manufacturing saris by using Aloe Vera fibre, which are in large demand.

Since yarn prices started soaring up, the jute weavers started looking for natural fibres to manufacture saris. After using banana fibre, the Anakaputhur weavers are now using fibre from Aloe Vera plant.

Weavers are generating good income by using Aloe Vera fibre. They are at present receiving Rs. 150 per day compared to Rs. 100 they used to get earlier.

Now, the traditional handloom weavers are also attracted towards this fibre and the saris made of this fibre which costs around Rs 700 are available in all the markets across the state.
