What is Ayurvastra?
Ayurvastra has a long history developed by Siddha and promoted by kings of Thamizhagam Cheras, Cholas, and Pandiyas during the first century. Ayurvedic textiles were made by weavers and supplied to kings and royal families. It is an age-old dyeing concept which is a combination of Ayurveda science and fabric, where the dyed cloth works as a mediator in carrying the goodness of ayurvedic herbs and transferring it through the skin pores into the body, thus providing wellness. The herbal concussion does not contaminate the water. The residue left after dyeing can also be reused. Solid and liquid waste is separated through filtration and is returned as manure and water to the farming fields. Many clinical experiments have shown the effectiveness of Ayurvastra. It was found that it can help those suffering from skin diseases, arthritis, blood pressure, diabetes and in some cases even cancer.
Ayurvastra creates garments infused with prana (life force).
Does Ayurvastra really work/cure?
As the body’s largest organ, the skin functions as a protective barrier. The skin absorbs environmental toxins and chemicals from conventional clothing and hence, can also absorb the wellness value of herbs found in our dyes. These wellness qualities in the body strengthen the skin’s ability to block and resist harmful substances. It assists with wellness every day but can work as a cure only under complete ayurvedic-certified treatment subjected to the disease.
How is Ayurvastra different from Natural Dyeing?
Natural dyeing focuses on the natural source of colour only. The colours can be extracted from ores, minerals and botany without extracting the health benefits. Ayurvastra on other hand is completely herb-based, where colour is a secondary thought after deciding on the benefit of the herbal mix.
