Selvedge horizontal 190216+28~470x470Selvedge horizontal 190216+22~470x470 Aranya Naturals is one of the Srishti Welfare Centre's projects in Munmar, India. The centre was founded with the desire to provide support and ultimately employment to the differently-abled children of local tea plantation workers. Aranya Naturals is the last stage of a person's involvement with the Srishti Welfare centre and also plays an important role in saving the rich Indian craft of dyeing clothes naturally. Selvedge horizontal 190216+6~470x470 The art of making natural dyes is harmonious with local eco-sytems, whereas artificial dyes that are not azo-free or non toxic can be extremely harmful for the environment. And by providing a source of employment to those who otherwise may struggle, they significantly improve many lives. Selvedge horizontal 190216+23~470x470 Once the children have been educated and trained at Srishti's DARE school they are then able to work at the natural dye unit, producing Aranya Naturals. A silk scarf with a story – perfect for Mother's Day on 6 March. www.selvedge.org
