So what is khadi cotton?
Our Khadi cotton wraps are made from cotton that is handspun on a spinning wheel know as a charkha and then woven on a handloom. Whilst cotton is generally machine woven and therefore a finer fabric, khadi cotton is hand spun, and therefore thicker. This versatile natural fibre is one of the purest forms of cotton fabric, and was famously worn by Mahatma Gandhi. Gandhi spun his own khadi cotton and encouraged others to do so too, in order to promote rural employment and self reliance. The manufacturing process is eco friendly as it requires no electricity to drive weaving machines.
Both warm in the winter and cool in the summer, the little irregularities in the weave make every wrap unique. These scarves are big enough to be draped as a shawl, after the summer sun dips, or wrapped around your neck on a chilly day.
