Ayurvastra Fabrics – Natural, organic yarns are dyed by hand using plants that contain medicinal properties.

The dye bath infuses the fibers with the lovely natural colours of these plants, along with their healing components. The yarns are then woven into fabric, and made into clothing or bedding. 


See some of the fabrics we currently offer and contact us for the potential to develop  your own Ayurvastra  medicinal textiles.
