Khadi is a term used for ‘Hand-spun’ and ‘Handwoven Textile’ in India.
Hand spinning and hand weaving is a technique that has been around in India for thousands of years. India continues to lead Khadi as a sustainable future textile.
Today Khadi is branded by the government of India to promote hand spun and woven textiles. Every India flag has to be Khadi. Upasana works closely with Khadi institution in South and North India.
In the words of Mahatma Gandhi : ‘The spinning wheel represents to me the hope of the masses. The masses lost their freedom, such as it was, with the loss of the Charkha. The Charkha supplemented the agriculture of the villagers and gave it dignity.
