Ayurvastra means healthy fabrics. The Ayurvastra project is initiated and launched by the Directorate of Handloom, in the Department of Industries and Commerce and the Department of Government at Ayurveda College, and is aimed at creating a niche for the eco-friendly wellness textiles ( Dying the textiles using ayurvedic herbs and plants and 100% free from toxic and artificial chemicals).

The Ayurvastra fabrics are infused in ayurvedic medicinal solution(kasayam). Its properties are permanently encapsulated in the fabrics and have health benefits.
