The Beautiful Khadi of India

Khadi is a kind of Indian fabric. It is also known as “Khaddar” and is created by spinning the threads on a machine called “Charkha”. Khadi manufacturing went through a huge boom during the pre-independence period through the aid of Mahatma Gandhiji. The wide use and manufacture of khadi encouraged Indians to patronize the fabric more compared to foreign-made materials.

Before Indian gained its independence, Khadi was known as the fabric used by political leaders and individuals living in the rural areas. Currently, it is known as a prestigious fabric, featured at fashion shows and big clothing stores. The demand for khadi has outgrown the available supply. Khadi cotton used to be khadi in its early stage, which was quite coarse. There are also other types of khadi like khadi wool and khadi silk. It is widely used by fashion designers because of the beauty and texture.

The design was created by Mahatma Gandhi. It used to be a symbol for political stages when the locals were aiming to free Indian from British rule. It was initially a method to give work to the unemployed rural residents in India. The Indian flag is also created using khadi. Khadi has a special role in the nation’s history, which is why many refer to it as the fabric of India.

Khadi has many uses and is effective in keeping the wearer cool during the summer and warm during winter. Starch can be added to keep the fabric firm and stable under various conditions.
