Organic Clothing is the new ‘in-thing’. The world is witnessing the rise of organic clothing. But organic clothing is not a new concept. Human beings have always been doing that. Especially in a Country like India, where farming had always been organic before someone tweaked it by introducing chemical substances for commercial interests.
Organic clothing is prepared from the raw materials grown under organic agricultural standards. The organic cotton and organic silk are the most common and relevant examples of organic clothing. Conventionally-grown cotton occupies only 3% of the world’s farmland, but uses 25% of the world’s chemical pesticides.
These chemical pesticides are not only harmful for the environment, but have adverse effects on sensitive skin. On a personal level, even if one doesn’t suffer from chemical allergies or sensitivities, they will most definitely feel better wearing pure, organic fabrics against their skin.
A baby’s skin is more porous and thinner than an adult’s, which means their skin absorbs things much easily. Their skin is less resistant to bacteria and harmful substances in the environment. Babies also don’t perspire as much as adults, making it harder for them to maintain their inner temperature. Thus, children are at a greater risk for pesticide related health problems than adults. Choosing organic clothing for your child will cut down their exposure to toxins.
Organic clothing is not only beneficial for babies but also for adults. The body works differently when you wear organic clothes as compared to wearing synthetic clothes. You will see a drastic difference in the level of comfort and ease at which your body functions because there is a certain aspect to what encases the body.
Organic clothing can serve as a catalyst for all the environment lovers. Organic clothes are good for your skin as well as your conscience. Many Fashion Designers are embracing organic textiles- which has led to the birth of Eco-Fashion.
