Khadi or Khaddar is a term for handspun and hand-woven cloth from India, Bangladesh and Pakistan primarily made out of cotton.
The raw materials may sometimes also include silk, or wool, which are all spun into yarn on a spinning wheel called a charkha. It is an amazingly versatile fabric that keeps you cool in summer and warm in winter. Khaddar is often starched and is fabulous to use for textile printing.
There is a great heritage in the woven fabric and has recently seen a revival. There is a beautiful history of it being part of a freedom and self reliance movement spearheaded by the late Mahatma Ghandi.
We love the fabric and used it to make our tote bags and dining sets. See our table runners, mats and coasters
It takes print really well so expect to see more khaddar in our future collections
