KHADI COTTON – INDIAN HERITAGE FABRIC
The Khadi cotton mill where our cotton is traditionally handwoven is a rehabilitation centre and home for men and women who have lost limbs and suffer from other disabilities. Sitting in the lap of nature, nestled in the foothills of the Himalaya’s, this truly is an idyllic and beautiful place to create this Indian heritage fabric.
All hand-spun, and hand-woven by manually powered looms, these natural yarns cannot be rushed and are made slowly with love. In 1918 Khadi was famously promoted by Mahatma Gandhi who considered Khadi a sacred cloth.
These beautiful textiles are used to create part of our Cotton Conscious collection of slow fashion, cotton clothing, cotton scarves, tote bags and pillow cases.
