WE USE KHADI a Sanskrit word meaning ‘hand-woven’ and ‘hand-spun’ and 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 cotton and may also include silk, or wool, which are all spun into yarn on a spinning wheel called a charkha.
The feeling and quality of our handmade items you will not find in mass production and Khadi continues to be the coolest most comfortable and timeless 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)
I love what Cotton Conscious do, I love how they do it – with care and sustainability – and I am now on season three’s dress and scarf shopping with them. What more can I say – I am a huge fan.
Beautiful dress. Perfect for holidays. Arrived next day. A gift of little handmade Indian earrings & a hand written note.
Will definitely be giving repeat custom.
I love organic materials and tribal clothing – this is the perfect urban mix ! Started chatting with Lisa&Blue and truly fascinated by their story and business venture out of the Himalayas . The clothing is very well made, designed and crafted .The owners fun to talk to, spreading love and dedication into London lifestyle . Fabulous.
