Made with azo-free dyes as well as using natural dyes, this is a design-led range for people who seek to introduce socially beneficial and ecologically sensible products into their lives.

The yarn used has been spun on ambar charkha and woven by hand the traditional way. The sarees feature traditional border detailing and motifs.

The product range is as follows:

• Muslin khadi sarees
• Idaikkal khadi sarees
• T. Subbulapuram khadi sarees

• Khadi dhotis, towels, kerchiefs

Mr. D. Jegannathan, CEO of Gandhigram says, "We have worked for the past two years to change the design sensibility of our products. With this objective, we worked with a textile designer trained at National Institute of Design, Ahmedabad. The present range is an outcome of that effort. The feedback we have received so far has been very positive and encouraging. Our khadi sarees have been recently exhibited at an exhibition in Dubai and were well-received.

About Khadi

The fabric of the freedom movement, is truly indian in spirit. In producing khadi, a large number of people in the rural sectors are given employment in processes like, spinning, weaving, dyeing etc. Khadi is a fabric that is spun by hand and woven on the handlooms. The hand-involved processes lend a unique texture to the cloth and is sought after by many.
