Khadi Cotton

In India, Khadi refers to handwoven and hand spun cloth.

Mahatma Gandhi collected large sums of money to create a grass-roots organization to encourage handloom weaving. This was called Khadi cloth – a natural fiber that is hand spun and hand woven. A craft that Mahatma Gandhi rekindled over one hundred years ago in India.

This is my first attempt at weaving “Khadi” cloth, using imported hand spun Kala Cotton from India.
