Khadi cotton is a handspun, handwoven natural fibre cloth made on a charka spinning wheel, exclusive to South Asia. Khadi cotton was made famous by India's freedom struggle, and the spinning wheel became the symbol of the resistance. The Khadi movement was started by Gandi and remains a symbol of self reliance, and a source of great pride for India.
We recommend that your piece should be washed sparingly. Although it survives a gentle cycle in the machine, the best results come from a cool water handwash with a non-toxic wool wash. We have received occasional feedback of running dye. Although this is unusual, we recommend washing separately for the first time. Khadi can be ironed on a low heat, or with a cloth guard.
