The Baggage of Khadi, Two Worlds Meet

“That the fabric of Khadi is symbolic and imbued with the very notion of “Indian-ness” is not something which any Indian is unaware of. Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi, the ultimate patron of Khadi, used it literally and symbolically to fight the British way back in the 1930s and the 1940s to foster a notion of swaraj and self reliance for the multitude of village economies which collectively constitute what we know as India even today. Given the quality of patronage this humble fabric received then, it is not surprising that, years after the freedom struggle, the very threads of this fabric continue to be weaved with the spirit of Gandhian values and principles.”
