Tales of the Tea Trade : Niraamaya
Niraamaya started their journey searching for a forgotten craft called ayurvastra which was enjoyed by the royal families of Kerala for centuries. They met with ayurvedic physicians, weavers, artisans & a lot of text references who shone a light on this ancient technique.
"Ayurvastra – the magic and goodness of Ayurvedic herbs on your skin. It all began with our quest for organic fabric devoid of any chemicals. The journey ended in the most authentic concept of fabrication, equipped with the splendour to get your skin all the goodness and pampering that it deserves.
We just had one intention on our mind – to help you get entwined with nature in all its fullness and indulge in mindful moments. Our fabric, being mindfully handwoven and dyed in hues from herbs like neem, tulsi, turmeric, vetiver, red sandal etc, make it easy for your skin to breathe and soak in pure bliss. Bid adieu to the chemicals that can harm you and your roots, our mother nature. Embrace divinity, self-love and the richness that you deserve. Embrace Niraamaya"
Now, for the last 12 Niraamaya practice crafting ayurvastra which in their words means
'using fabrics/yarns embedded with ayurvedic herbal formulations through a unique dyeing process without denaturing its medicinal properties. We use preparations from herbs, berries, flowers & oils with properties like wellness, detox, skin conditioning, immunity etc to dye yarns & fabrics of cotton, silk, wool hemp & burlap – all natural & mostly certified organic'
The team make yoga towels, yoga wear, eye pillows, bath towels, bedsheets, stoles & even a natural laundry powder!
