We use Khadi
A Sanskrit word meaning ‘hand-woven’ and ‘hand-spun’. Khadi has been described as the fabric of Indian independence. Promoted by Mahatma Ghandi in 1918, nearly all of the fabric used in our products is Khadi. This Indian homespun Khadi cotton cloth is slowly woven from organic cotton and may also include silk, or wool, which are all spun into yarn on a wooden charkha spinning wheel.
You cannot find the feel, texture and quality of our handmade items in mass produced or factory made garments.
Khadi fabric continues to be the coolest most comfortable and timeless heritage fabric.
INSPIRATIONAL GANDHI QUOTE: Khadi is only seemingly expensive. I have pointed out that it is wrong to compare khadi with other cloth by comparing the prices of given lengths. The inexpensiveness of khadi consists in the revolution of one’s taste. The wearing of khadi replaces the conventional idea of wearing clothes for ornament by that of wearing them for use – (Gandhi)
