    Himalayan Nettle Products

    Eco-textile made of Himalayan Nettle (Girardinia Diversifolia) from Uttarakhand Himalayas

    About Nettle:

    Himalayan nettle is a perennial plant found growing in temperate and sub-tropical Himalayas, between 1200 to 2900 meters above sea level. It is largely found growing wild in the broad leaf forests with high leaf litter and moisture as well as in the outskirts of villages of Uttarakhand. Clothing made from nettle is not a new idea, since the past thousands year people have worn fabrics made from the Himalayan nettle. But nettle lost their popularity when synthetic and other fibers arrived in the market. Considering the potential of this fiber, Uttarakhand Bamboo & Fiber Development Board is promoting eco-friendly natural fiber as livelihood option to the hill people specially Bhotia community of Uttarakhand who are crafting variety of products in nettle fiber.

    Special inherent characteristics of nettle fiber make it very different from other fibers and have unique prosperities like:

    • Reputedly antimicrobial, antibacterial and fire retardant
    • Great resistance to wrinkling
