The production of natural fibers is not sufficient to accommodate the textile needs of the growing world population, hence the demand for natural fibres is rising in fashion world. Fibres extracted from banana, jute bark, palm, cotton, even from cocoons of insects, are well-liked.
Though typically known for its nutritional use, the sugarcane can also be used for textile production because of its high fiber content.
Its linear density, fineness, tensile properties, and bending rigidity makes it suitable for fabric generation.
Sugarcane is grown to extract sugar from its stalk. After the juice is extracted, the remaining sugarcane fibre pulp is called bagasse.
Sugarcane bagasse, which is an abundant waste fibrous residue of sugarcane, is used in apparel industry
where the bagasse is utilised for production of textile rayon fibers such as viscose, modal and lyocell. The bagasse is shredded, broken down with eco-friendly chemicals or other chemicals and this long strand of fibre is then solidified and spun into yarn. Rayon fibres are thus produced. Sugarcane rayon is glossier and has a delightful lustre and more silk-like than wood pulp rayon.
Keeping in flavour of various seasons and constant eco-friendly fashion needs, weavers are now turning to sugarcane pulp and bamboo fibres to provide customers fabrics that are attractive and has minimum impact on the environment.
