  1. NATURAL AND ECO-FRIENDLY APPAREL MADE FROM HANDLOOM FABRICS

    NATURAL AND ECO-FRIENDLY APPAREL MADE FROM HANDLOOM FABRICS Roy Maulik, Sankar Handloom is the traditional device of manufacturing simple and decorative fabrics meant mostly for apparel and home fumishing in our country and has boen playing a major rolo for the oconomic development of rural sectors by the way of gonerating employment potential. Handloom tself is an eco friendly process of manufacturing fabrics and hence use of natural dyes in presence or absence of diterent innocuous inorganic salts really completes sustainable textiles. The strength of handloom lies in introducing designs which cannot be replicated by the power loom sector. Handloom weavers with their skillful blending of myths, faiths, symbols and imagination provide the fabric an appoaling dynamism. Eco-friendly collection of apparels/gaments is made trom natural dyed yarms. It is also the fundamental requirement that coloured toxtiles should withstand the conditions encountered during processing and subsequent usage and hence assessment of different colourfastness properties viz. washing, light and rubbing, are also assessed and reported in this study. In viow of the use of various salts at concentrations much below their respectivo maximum permissible limits, such apparols/garments ocan also be considered as eco-friendly product and 1s worth labeled as eco-textile.
  2. Batik on handloom cotton fabric with natural dye

    Batik on handloom cotton fabric with natural dye Roy Maulik, Sankar Handloom forms a precious part of the generational legacy and exemplifies the richness and diversity of culture and artistry of the weavers. Tradition of weaving by hand is a part of the country’s cultural ethos. However, in the present context of globalization and rapid technological changes, handloom sector is beset with many challenges and the handloom products are being continuously replicated on power looms at much lower price. Hence, there is a need to strengthen this sector given the employment potential and market demand for handloom products. On the other hand environmental considerations are now becoming additional important factors during the selection of consumer goods including textiles all over the world. Affairs related to environmental preservation and control of pollution have renewed interest for use of natural dyes for the colouration of textile materials all over the world, particularly in the developed countries. In the past few decades, batik work on textile materials has gained popularity among the young generations who quickly adapted the easy-to-do method for individualizing their shirts, trousers, jeans and casual clothing. Therefore, product diversification through batik work with natural dyes is one of the ways to create fancy effect on the handloom products for the ever changing fashion market. A greater emphasis on using natural dye in the textile industry could make a valuable contribution to environmental sustainability in the 21st century.
  3. Painting on handloom cotton fabric with colourants extracted from natural sources

    Painting on handloom cotton fabric with colourants extracted from natural sources Roy Maulik, Sankar Cotton fabric was painted with Rubia cordifolia, Laccifer lacca, Acacia catechu, Punica granatum, Terminalia chebula, Curcuma longa and Camellia sinensis in presence of aluminum sulphate, ferrous sulphate and copper sulphate as mordants employing a simultaneous mordanting technique followed by steaming of the painted fabric at 1020C for 30 min, whereas Indigofera tinctoria was applied in absence of any such salts. Such painting technique appears to be superior as compared to traditional process in respect to ease of application, storage stability of paste, colour fastness to light, rubbing and wash. It appears that such hand painted fabric has the potential for giving a crafty look to various handloom fabrics used for apparel and home furnishing purpose. In fact, it can also be used for embellishing finished garments such as t-shirt, jackets, etc. as also many other products like bags, pillows, cushion cover or anything made up of fabrics just by adding designs and colors to them. In view of use of various salts at concentrations much below their respective maximum permissible limits, such painted cotton fabrics can also be considered as eco-friendly product and is worth as labeled eco-textile.
