Aranya Natural promotes natural textile dyes at sustainability conference in Kerala
Natural-dyed textile producer Aranya Natural celebrated its 25th anniversary at the charitable body Shrishti Trust’s premises in Kerala over the weekend, and held a conference on sustainability and natural textile dyes.
From February 22 to 23, Aranya Natural hosted international textile dyeing experts for an interactive conference, the textile business announced on Facebook. The event featured workshops and demonstrations on different dying techniques and promoted the sector as having great potential for growth in the international market.
Natural dye expert Michel Garcia held a workshop on how to best use common materials such as flowers to dye fabric. Linda Labelle showcased how to dye textiles with Indigo and Jagada Rajappa and the Buisou Team also shared their skills.
“The most important change needed is the recognition by the consumers of the privileged societies of the ethical dimension and compassionate understanding of where the materials come from and the environment and communities in which the products are made,” said Japanese textile artist, curator, and author Yoshiko Wada in her speech at the event, ET Bureau reported.
The Shrishti Trust, an independent body supported by Tata Consumer Products Ltd and Tata Trusts, promotes Aranya Natural textiles. Aranya Natural now retails around 60% of its products overseas and aims to promote natural-dyed textiles internationally and create further employment opportunities in India.
