The leading textile manufacturer, Hayles Fabric PLC, has announced the launch of its new line of eco-friendly fabrics manufactured using environmentally sustainable processes. The enhancement into the sustainability initiative comes in line with the Sustainability Development Goals set out by the United Nations.
The brand has utilised natural tea dye produced from waste tea provided by Hayleys Plantations. They have also gone a step ahead and utilised anti-bacterial and anti-viral neem and thulasi (commonly known as Holy Basil or Ocimum tenuiflorum) treatment to ensure sustainable protection as well. Hayleys Fabric currently offers a range of fabrics that give the wearer a comfortable garment that is produced under ecologically friendly conditions and is safely biodegradable at the end of its life cycle.
Rohan Goonetilleke, Hayleys Fabric Managing Director/ CEO, stated that in the past the industry mainly focused on optimising the use of synthetic dyes in the manufacturing process, however, due to the current trend the demand for sustainably manufactured fabrics is on the rise. He added that they were proud to pioneer a safer and sustainable alternative to the synthetic dyes and treatments. Rohan explained that they hope to expand these techniques, and further exploring every opportunity to further minimise our environmental footprint.
The tea dye has been tested to ensure it is in par with internationally accepted standards, and is totally free of hazardous chemicals, making it safer for the wearer, environment and for those involved in the manufacturing process. The company also uses other natural dyes extracted from pomegranate (Punica granatum), mulberry (Morus alba), Mexican marigold (Tagetes erecta) and black cutch (Acacia catechu).
