Aloe-vera Fibre Saris

Weavers of Anakaputhur

KEYWORDS

The use of aloe vera fibre had proved successful as the weavers were able to weave sarees and shirt material. The Anakaputhur branch of Indian Bank had come forward to fund the weavers. The Department of Industries and Commerce of the State government had evinced keen interest in the project, the weavers told reporters.

“With the price of yarn increasing, we thought of finding a natural fibre to make sarees. First, we used banana fibre, and now we have used fibre from the Aloe Vera plant. Sarees made from Aloe Vera fibre are in demand. Weavers today are earning well,” claimed Sekar, President of the Anakaputhur Jute Weavers Association.
