The preamble of organic farming has been aimed at conservation and optimized utilization of all natural resources.
Takers of organic cotton are very few and the farmers have to bear the brunt of this. Direct purchase by Bhu:sattva will encourage farmers to cultivate organic cotton and also provide them a livelihood they deserve.
Organic cotton is grown without pesticides, herbicides, insecticides, chemical fertilizers or any other chemicals, unlike conventional cotton, which is one of the most chemically dependent crops.
Hemp As the premier plant fiber and dubbed the greenest textile, hemp requires very little resources for growth. Hemp is a strong fibre and grows minus herbicides and pesticides. Its qualities also include being soft, comfortable and lost lasting, hemp keeps you cool in hot weather.
Bamboo fabric is a natural textile made from the pulp of the bamboo grass. Bamboo fabric has been growing in popularity because it has many unique properties and is more sustainable than most textile fibers. Bamboo fabric is light and strong, has excellent wicking properties, and is to some extent antibacterial. The use of bamboo fiber for clothing was a 20th century development, pioneered by several Chinese corporations.
Cruelty free silk
Peace Silk also known as 'Ahimsa'silk comes from India and is usually made from Eri and Tassar moth cocoons. In ahimsa production, producers allow the moths to hatch. However, because the moths break the fibers as they emerge from their cocoons, the fibers are spun into "slubby threads" instead of reeled. The fabric has some amazing medical properties, is anti-inflammatory and bio-degradable. Ahimsa is not as strong as reeled, but it is warmer and softer. We also use other silks like ghichha , Eri and Matka, manufactured with the same cruelty free technique.
Soy Fiber is a unique, pleasant tasting, fiber product made from the cell wall fiber and protein of the soybean cotyledon. This combination of fiber and protein gives this product excellent water absorbing and moisture migration control properties. Made from Non-GMO soybeans using an organically approved process.
Modal and Bamberg have been described as "they look like silk chiffon, but are super-sophisticated." Modal is a biodegradable fabric, made with the bamberg process extracted from beech tree.
To create a textile that is soothing to the skin, fabric can now be infused with aloe vera "capsules." These capsules are microscopic, airtight and waterproof. They open to release the gel only when the fabric is touched or rubbed. Essentially, every time an infused garment is worn, the aloe is applied to the skin. In addition to the skin benefits, aloe also adds a few interesting features to the fabric itself. It is naturally anti-bacterial; and so not only does it keep clothing cleaner, it also combats body odor.Though aloe-infused fabrics are still a relatively new material within the industry, a few companies have begun to experiment with the idea.
Banana fibre is a new bio degradable natural fiber extracted from bark of banana tree. Banana fiber is made up of thick walled cell tissue and bonded by natural gums. The appearance of banana fiber is similar that of natural bamboo fiber but its fineness and spin ability is better than natural bamboo and remie fibers. Its biodegradable with high strength and good luster.
Piña is a fiber made from the leaves of a pineapple plant. Pineapple fibres are very lightweight, soft and easy to maintain and wash, and also it fuses well with other fabrics and provides an elegant look.
Milk protein fibre
Milk protein fiber is made of skimmed milk. Main component of this fiber are casein proteins, drawn from the milk. It is manufactured by spinning protein fluid by means of bio-engineering technique. Milk Protein fabric is the perfect combination of nature, science and technology that has added advantages of both natural and synthetic fiber. The fabric is nutritious to skin, its gloss is pleasant and feels soft and also has good moisture absorption.
Flax fiber is extracted from the bast or skin of the stem of the flax plant. Flax fiber is soft, lustrous and flexible; bundles of fiber have the appearance of blonde hair, hence the description "flaxen".
It is a long, soft, shiny fiber that can be spun into coarse, strong threads. It is one of the cheapest natural fibers, and is second only to cotton in amount produced and variety of uses. Jute fibers are composed primarily of the plant materials cellulose, lignin, and pectin. Both the fiber and the plant from which it comes are commonly called jute.
khādī is Indian handspun and hand-woven cloth, a fabric that conserves energy. The raw materials may be cotton, silk, or wool, which are spun into threads on a spinning wheel called a charkha. It is a versatile fabric, cool in the summer and warm in the winter.
