Ayuvastra Healing Fabrics
Ayuvastra Healing Fabrics is a new Irish online company selling high quality men and women’s leisure wear/yoga wear, baby wear, fabric and bed linen, which is not only eco-friendly but also confers health benefits!
Ayuvastra Healing Fabrics is run by a husband and wife team: Ema Staunton, is an Irish graduate in textile design from NCAD and Aslam Noor, is from Kerala, South India, home of ayurveda.
The company takes its name (Ayuvastra) from the ancient Indian technique (Ayurvastra) of dyeing textiles using medicinal herbs which are absorbed through the skin. The technique was developed as a branch of Ayurveda, the 5,000-year-old Indian system of healthcare. Ema and Aslam are working in partnership with a Kerala Weaving Society using dye recipes handed down from a family of ayurvedic physicians to dye their fabrics.
The company’s products are designed in Ireland and made from certified organic cotton and dyed with natural, medicinal dyes from organically grown plants in Kerala, south India.
Their current range is based around the principle that the most effective time to benefit from healing fabric is when the body is most relaxed. This range is soft, comfortable and comes in beautiful earthy shades, additional ranges and organic silk will be added to the collection later in the year. Online store opening on the 22nd of June.
