Article Abstract: When considering a healthy lifestyle fabric is the first thing that comes to mind. Synthetic fabrics with teeming chemicals and dyes pose severe health threats. From towels to bed linen , 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. 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. Organic Fibre 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. 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.
