There is a crying need today to choose alternative natural fabric that is made from easily available materials or waste materials so as to reduce the pressure on natural resources. Opt for natural fabrics over harmful synthetics, for the sake of the environment as well as for your comfort.
The plethora of man-made fabrics such as polyester and nylon are extremely harmful to the environment. Their production process uses harmful chemicals and they are not bio-degradable. Plus their formaldehyde finishes and chemical dyes are harmful to the skin.
Fortunately there are options available that are healthy – both to us and to our environment! Choose alternative natural fabric that is made from easily available materials or waste materials. Organic clothing, from all-natural, non-synthetic materials, is a part of the organic agriculture movement which emphasizes farming and processing that work with nature to help minimize air, soil and water pollution. Organic clothing materials come from plants that have not been radiated genetically modified or treated with synthetic or chemical pesticides.
Regular cotton is a widely used fabric, but its production causes immense damage to the environment. It is estimated that 25% of global pesticide is used in traditional cotton farming. On the other hand. cotton grown without insecticides /pesticides not only means chemical free fabric but also means that we have avoided the chemical run-off that saturates the ground and ends up in our food, drinking water and the air we breathe. Organic materials are grown toxin-free, reducing the amount of toxic chemicals we ingest and release into the earth. Organic fibers are hypo-allergenic and free of chemicals or pollutants. Clothes from natural material also ensure that less pollution when dumped, they degenerate faster and produce less pollution on the way to degeneration process.
What are these naturally produced fashion materials? Soya fabric made from waste soya hull, banana fabric from banana leaf, organic wool, fabrics made from silk and hemp as well as renewable materials like bamboo, soy and Tencel, a wood pulp product. Sustainable clothing materials can also be produced from new synthetic options like “POP,” fabric made from recycled plastic soda bottles.
Organically grown cotton has great strength and durability and is good for people with allergies and chemical sensitivity. Its soft texture and breathable structure makes it an eternal fashion favorite too!
Bamboo, with its natural antibacterial and moisture-wicking properties, makes for excellent sportswear too. It is the softest, smoothest fabric to wear next to your skin and is most comfortable.
You too can contribute towards nature by making an eco-conscious choice when you shop the next time. Helping you make this right choice is Natural Mantra from where you can buy organic and natural fabric-made clothes! Do check out the website to make your eco-friendly fashion statement!

Why are Natural Fabrics special for you?
The inherent characteristic of natural fabrics that we have used, such as Organic cotton, Silk, Bamboo, Soya & Modal – offer advantages in terms of better breath-ability, temperature regulation, durability, water absorption, antimicrobial properties, and more! versus synthetic fabrics that pose a health risk by :
Stopping the normal function of your body due to their low breath-ability, low water absorption, and thermal regulation. This in turn can lead to either overheating (even heat stroke in a high-temperature climate), or getting too cold.
Stops the normal reaction of your skin to create a barrier and encourages a favorable condition for bacteria growth, thereby causing or worsening skin disorders and the course of allergic reactions.
