Small-scale textile production using natural dyes


The handloom weaving project of UBINIG (Policy Research for Development Alternatives) in Bangladesh, operates as part of an alternative approach  to the industrialisation process. Handloom weaving activity is not based on the use of fossil fuels. This ecological practice is being integrated with the practice of ecological agriculture in the rural areas where the project is in operation. The project is also designed to avoid the use of chemical dyes in cloth production, as this causes environmental and health hazards. The use of natural dyes is still very limited and is confined to very sophisticated process of cloth production, which is often very expensive. In this project, clothes are  being produced with the use of various forms of natural dyes.
