Indian Organic Textiles Market

  • The majority of organic cotton produced in India is processed in the country and exported only as textile. The demand for the product within the country is negligible, mostly because of its high price

The promise of Organic Cotton…

  • 46% reduced global warming potential
  • 70% less acidification potential
  • 26% reduced eutrophication potential (soil erosion)
  • 91% reduced blue water consumption
  • 62% reduced primary energy demand

Practices followed in organic textiles and their benefits –

  • No genetically modified organisms (GMO) seeds are used.
  • Certain insects, biological and cultural practices are used to control pests.
  • Soil remain strong through crop rotations.
  • Retains water more efficiently
  • Since no pesticides or fertilizers are used, farmers are a lot healthier.
  • Controls weed through physical removal rather than chemical destruction.

Despite being a niche market, the market for organic textiles is witnessing significant growth in India. EAI has witnessed this growth trend in organic clothing (made from non-allergic, eco-friendly and durable organic cotton) segment for children. This trend can be attributed to the growing awareness of people towards environment and health issues.
