What is Khadi :-
‘Khadi’ (pronounced Khādī) is hand spun, hand woven fabric from India. It can be cotton, silk or mixed fabric. It is an eco-friendly fabric with a great socially positive impact.
Khadi is also one of the world’s most breathable materials. The fabric feels cold in warm weather and warm in cold weather. As it is handspun, it is not as smooth as a mill woven cloth, which gives it a very unique texture.
As Khadi is hand spun and hand woven, the fabric is never ‘flawless’. It has inherent irregularities in yarn, color and weaving such as knots, variation in yarn thickness etc. But these irregularities give Khadi its uniqueness and make it a special fabric as no two fabrics will be same.
