Hand spun Khadi undergoes transformation.
Endorsed by iconic freedom fighter Mahatma Gandhi, the hand spun fabric Khadi has undergone major transformation to lure the customers with its new trendy look.
Once considered a uniform for politicians dressed in white coloured kurta pyjama, the fabric has renovated itself to cater to the need of today’s fashion conscious generation.
The fabric has also been popularised by many fashion designers and has even gained international recognition. Coming of age, Khadi has now become in vogue.
“Khadi is in fashion these days. Earlier only politicians used to wear it that too, only white kurta payjama. But nowadays, many fashion designers have also developed Khadi a lot. Ladies kurti, jeans wear, everything is available in Khadi. Today people wear Khadi for fashion, earlier it was a need. Khadi also provides employment to so many people. Everybody should wear it, it is such a cheap fabric and there is a lot of variety available in it as well,” said Bhikha Bhai Desai, a Khadi trader.
The customers at the Khadi pavilion were surprised to see the age-old fabric in a completely new form.
“Trends have changed. After coming here, I brought a lot of Khadi clothes, sari, coat and kids can even wear Khadi to parties. I feel like using Khadi only after today and also tell other people to use Khadi only. Trend has completely changed and I got to see an entirely new collection,” said Munish Saini, a customer.
Khadi is a versatile fabric and can be worn in every season. Khadi provides employment to millions of people in the rural areas and is a thriving industry today.
