Significant Technologies Developed- Clothing and Textiles

1. Protective clothing (Apron and gloves)
Developed protective clothing(apron and gloves) for mitigating occupational health hazard of workers engaged in agriculture and allied sector.

2. Extraction and processing of hemp and nettle fibers and its value addition for income generation
Hemp fiber (Cannabis sativa)
Nettle fiber
Himalayan-nettle and cotton union fabric (Woven and non wovenfabrics)

3. Development of UV Protective scarf masks for farm women using Jamun (Syzygiumcumini) leaf extract
Jamun (Syzygiumcumini) leaf extract was prepared and finishing process was optimized for UV protective finish on cotton fabric based on the results of UPF (Ultra Violet Protection Factor). The UPF of this finished fabric was found to be very good (UPF: 36.7) which meant that fabric can provide protection against UV rays. Finished fabric was used for the development of UV Protective scarf masks for farm women.

4. Diversification of Aipanfloor art of Kumaon (Uttarakhand) using different textile surface enrichment techniques
The Aipanfolk art uses geometric and stylized designs which are made on gerupainted floor (red background) with rice paste (white). There are specific Aipan for different religious occasions and ceremonies The main symbols used in this are the lines, dots, triangles, circles, squares, swastika, lotus and their various combinations. These designs of KumaoniAipanwere chosen for adaptation on textile products through different surface enrichment techniques.

5. Herbal gulals
Herbal gulals of various shades were prepared using beetroot extract, tesu flower extract and marigold flower extract. Colours were extracted from natural sources and filtered. The filtrates were concentrated to some extent and mixed with the arrowroot starch powder in different proportions as per the required shade.

6. Delignification of Himalayan nettle
Extraction and processing of Himalayan nettle fibre was done with the minimal use of chemicals.
