What is Khadi

‘Khadi’ (pronounced Khādī) is hand spun, hand woven fabric from India and could be cotton, silk or mixed fabric. It is an eco-friendly fabric with a great socially positive impact. It is extremely versatile. For instance, a rougher yarn can be used to make a shoulder bag, while a silken blend makes for classy evening-wear.

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. ‘Khadi’, was made popular by Mahatma Gandhi due to its focus on self-sustenance of village economy.

Khadi is spun and woven by weavers in villages and towns of India. The weaving is done on hand looms. Members of the family assist in the production process which includes preparing the yarn, spinning and weaving. Women of the house are also actively involved. At Earthen Colors, we work directly with the artisans for stoles, shirts, and jackets made from Khadi.

As Khadi is hand spun and hand woven, the fabric is never ‘flawless’ and 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.

KHADI – RAW/UNDYED KHADI

Grey Khadi is hand spun hand woven fabric which is un-dyed and hence it is free from all dying chemicals. This is directly woven from the undyed (grey) yarn. As it has no harmful chemicals used in the process of chemical dying, Raw Khadi is ideal for many different uses such as sheets and blankets/wraps for babies, baby apparel etc. Similarly, as it is available in different weights (GSM), these can be used in variety of apparel and accessories like kitchen napkins, aprons, place mats, table runners etc. It is also ideally suited as a background fabric for embroidery.
