We start with 100% organic cotton yarn. The yarn is dyed using our proprietary dyeing process that is mostly manual (except for grinding some of the herbs/plants used). The dye is prepared as a concoction used in Ayurveda using predominantly plants/herbs like Turmeric and Tulsi(Holy Basil) along with many others. The dyed yarn is then woven using a design that is meant to provide grip on the surface as well as on the floor.Finally, the woven mat is hand-brushed with a natural rubber solution on the back to enhance floor grip even further. Before getting into packs the yarn used in Ayur Yoga goes through some very strict Ayurvedic procedures i. After cleaning, the yarn is coated with a natural gum, and it is then soaked, prepared with pomegranate, turmeric, neem, Indigo, ramacham, sandalwood as per application (different dyes for different diseases). By regular use of Ayur Vastra the immunity levels are raised and the body and mind reaching a state of natural harmony and balance, leading to wellness and health. We use only natural fibers like cotton/linien/silk/wool/coir etc..
