The Khadi Saree Is A Worthy Application Of A Legacy To A National Fabric

Khadi is hand spun and hand woven cloth. Raw materials matka such as cotton, silk or wool, that are hand spun on a spinning wheel or ‘charaka’ are Khadi. Popular for their texture and weaving patterns, Khadi Cotton Sarees appeal for the fancy prints of block, batik and gold that adorn them.

Introduced by Mahatma Gandhi in 1920 as part of the Swadeshi Movement, Khadi has many qualities worthy of a good fabric.

Khadi Cotton offers resistance to shrinking, acquires colour easily, and combines with other fabric kinds like silk and cotton to make fine blends. A unique quality it possesses is that it keeps the body warm in winter and cool in summer. Khadi also has a distinctive attribute of acquiring shine after every wash.

Indian fashion designers have extolled the virtues of Khadi. They find it comparable to the qualities of Egyptian cotton and linen.

Khadi clothes well and follows contours of the body. After a few washes the fabric assumes a right fit. It also has breathing quality, a self-texture, and blended with denim, wool, polyester and silk has produced remarkable results.

The charm and appeal of the Khadi Saree lies in its ruffled and wavy look. Unlike cotton, the material is generally starched and hence, does not crumple as easily.

Khadi is available from different parts of the country. The Silk variety is available from the Eastern and North Eastern States, Cotton Khadi from West Bengal, Andhra Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh and Bihar. Poly Khadi is from Gujarat and Rajasthan, while Woolen Khadi is from the Northern States of Haryana, Himachal Pradesh and Jammu & Kashmir.

Established in 1956, the Khadi and Village Industries Commission (KVIC), controls the production and marketing of Khadi across the country. Today it has an estimated working strength across the country of more than 75 lakh people, who are associated with it in different ways.
