Eco friendly fibres
Author(s): Neeti Sirohi
Textile is the major part of the basic human needs. Environmental impacts occur at every stage of the life cycle of a product. Natural fibers are significantly elongated substances produced by plants and animals that can be spun into filaments, yarns and ropes. Like agriculture, textiles have been a fundamental part of human life since the dawn of civilization. In India, a growing shortage of natural fibre producers leads the researchers to develop new environmental friendly textile and its products. Natural fibres are at the heart of an eco-fashion movement that seeks to create garments that are sustainable at every stage of their life cycle, from production to disposal. Natural fibres have intrinsic properties such as mechanical strength, low weight and healthier to the wearer that has made them particularly attractive. Progressively, eco-textiles are being used for industrial purposes as well as in components of composite materials, in medical implants.
