Ayurveda is a traditional and the most influential form of medicine native to India originating from its Vedic traditions. It is popularly practiced in many parts of South Asia. Ayurvastra is a fabric that is dyed as prescribed in the Ayurvedic texts, using various natural herbs like neem, tulsi, sida, turmeric, and sandalwood. These fabrics are permeated with therapeutic herbs, and aromatic oils. They possess medicinal properties, and are good for skin.

Roots, seeds, flowers, leaves and barks of trees of many rare herbs and plants are used to make the dyes. The color of the fabrics is obtained only by the ayurvedic dyeing and no other artificial or chemical colorants are used. This fabric is sourced from Kerala.
