India is extremely proud of its skill and heritage in this craft and of keeping it alive, and in turn it’s a fabric we’re also extremely proud to work with in order to help sustain its tradition. The neatness and precision in the hand work is a true labour of love. The patience of the spinners and weavers is extraordinary – fabrics can take months to weave.
Khadi is usually made from cotton fibre, though you can also find Khadi silks and woolen Khadi. The cotton is lightweight and precious but also very durable – it is machine-washable, and is prized throughout India for its ability to keep you cool during the hot summer, yet warm in the winter.
