Can your dress reduce high blood pressure? Will your pants ease eczema or psoriasis? According to India’s Ayurvastra tradition—literally “life dress” in Sanskrit— fabric infused with medicinal plants and herbs can heal whatever ails you. Anjelika Krishna, originally from New Dehli, is one New Jersey-based designer who’s reviving the ancient craft. Her burgeoning label, A.D.O Clothing, marries 5,000-year-old Ayurvedic wisdom with eco-conscious production, resulting in simple yet chic organic-cotton pieces with supposed medicinal properties. (We want to believe.)

HERBAL RESCUE

Each strand of yarn is hand-dyed with all-natural ingredients, including pomegranate seeds, turmeric, sandalwood, and eucalyptus. Besides imbuing the fabric with their vibrant hues, the herbal dyes are said to boost immunity, reduce inflammation, and promote a general sense of well-being.

Whether you buy into Ayurvastra scientifically unproven claims or not, there’s more than one reason A.D.O.’s tunics, hoodies, and dresses, will inspire the warm fuzzies. Zero synthetic chemicals are used, for instance. Plus, A.D.O uses a fair-trade factories in India and in New York City’s Garment District to produce its wares.
