Gandhigram Trust exports curative textiles for Japan

Our Correspondent

MADURAI: The Centre for Documentation, Research and Training on Natural Dyes, a unit of Gandhigram Trust at Gandhigram, near here, has successfully exported its first batch of curative textiles to Japan.

According to Mr Bharathan, a natural dyes expert and in-charge of the centre, curative textiles are used in Japan to cure lunacy, skin diseases, hypertension and respiratory ailments.

After successful tests and trials for two years, the Mistubishi group placed orders with the centre. A Japanese team camped and inspected various processing systems adopted in the centre.

He said the yarn manufactured in Rajapalayam had been eco-bleached and dyed using medicinal plants and natural dyes and forwarded to Tirupur for knitting and brought back to the centre for medical processing and again sent for making garments.
