The moment you think of Khadi, the image of Mahatma Gandhi spinning this fabric on his charkha pops-up in one’s mind. Khadi has long been associated with the freedom movement and the strong will of a nation to set itself free from the clutches of a century-long foreign rule.
On the whole, Khadi is a versatile and light fabric which makes it comfortable to wear and carry. It also lasts long and is used to make a large variety of items, one of which is obviously the saree. One important thing to note is that Khadi is generally woven using only cotton. But the demand for different varieties has resulted in the use of other materials like silk and wool. Nonetheless, any silk or wool Khadi clothing will have some percentage of cotton in it.
Khadi silk is 50% cotton and 50% silk. This fabric is characterised by its sheen and luxurious appearance. It is more expensive than cotton Khadi and must only be dry-cleaned as opposed to cotton Khadi that needs to be starched so that it maintains its firm and crisp texture.
