KHADI SAREES ONLINE
The Prestigious Khadi
Also known as Khaddar, Khadi is one of the prominently used fabrics in India, Pakistan, and Bangladesh. It is a purely hand-spun cloth made of natural fibers. Generally cotton is used in Khadi manufacturing, but the weaving can also be performed using silk or wool. The yarn of Khadi is spun on a spinning wheel known as ‘Charkha’.
Origin of Khadi
The fabric was discovered during the ‘Swadeshi Movement’ led by the father of the nation Mahatma Gandhi in the 1920s. He encouraged Indians to boycott foreign goods and spin their own cloth. The eminent charkha became the symbol of this historic movement. Khadi came as a boon to make India self-reliant. With time, advanced weaving techniques were introduced and today Khadi is one of the most used fabrics in India and its neighbouring countries.
