The early clothing used by mankind consisted of fur, leather, leaves, or grass. They are products of nature and purely eco friendly. But in the process of evolution, the concept of clothing and its texture underwent many changes. Instead of natural sources the material for clothing are obtained from artificial sources. This became a trend and fashion. But of late we realized about the severe damage caused to the environment by the use of unsustainable process of garment production. Further, as a result of intensive studies, we could realize that organic clothing is more healthy and comfortable. Nature friendly materials made a come back to serve the multi purposes of environmental protection and a healthy life style.


The research has yielded us with precious information that the impact of environmental pollution is more among children, than adults. This realization is the reason for the remarkable shift in the preference of the people who opted more and more for organic clothing for the younger generation. The fact that it is children who are more prone to allergies and other afflictions on their sensitive skin, made the parents resolve in favour of organic clothing. Nappies, under wears, night wears, play clothes, socks and tights, etc made of organic materials are now preferred by parents. They are cozy and durable. No harmful dyes or chemicals are used in their production.


Organic clothing made from lambs wool, hemp, ramie, tensel, organic cotton and bamboo are very popular now a days. Vintage buttons, cocoanut shell buttons, shell buttons, silver clasp are accessories that makes the dress beautiful and attractive. Nature provides materials which are suitable for keeping the children comfortable and with a sense of wellbeing by allowing their skins to breathe. The organically grown cotton saves the tender skin from allergies caused by the chemicals used in the process of cultivation of the plants and the production of clothes. The beautiful clothing made from natural organic textiles and recycled fabrics are therefore eco friendly and healthy.


When the child receives organic clothing, it reflects the current cultural shift towards an environment friendly attitude of the humanity. The hazards caused by the pollution from landfills of non-biogradable wastes throughout the country have awakened the conscience of the society. Organic fibres are from sustainable sources and are durable and bio degradable. For example knit wear made from high quality East Asian bamboo is naturally anti bacterial, and having minimum environmental impact because bamboo can be grown without pesticides. Similarly pure silk, jute, lambs wool etc are also eco friendly. Natural colours are used in the manufacture of such fabrics. So they are free from chemical treatments and are more attractive.
