about khadi village and industries emporium

First introduced by Mahatma Gandhi, Khadi symbolises the struggle for Indian independence. To the Indian rural communities it is more like a weapon to fight poverty and a means of self employment. The Khadi Industry started in Bassi with the aim to bring about development in the surrounding villages and over time, it spread to villages all over India as a means for achieving rural employment and other objectives like child education, drinking water availability and other social programs which along with serving as an earning source, also raised the social status of these rural communities.

Today, Khadi has become a household name and even the latest fashion statement, where old and rustic are the new 'in' thing. Khadi is mainly known for its hand-woven cotton clothings, bedsheets, durries, quilts, pillows, bolsters, woolen stoles, carpets, rugs and Nehru jackets. Apart from textiles, Khadi also sells ayurvedic and handmade bath accessories, skin and body care products, food items like pickles, dried fruits, snacks and chutnies, incense sticks, handmade papers and other wooden or metal handicrafts. A special mention goes to the impressive arrar of leather products avaible here.

Khadi claims that it uses only vegan leather, i.e leather made from the skins of already deceased animals and no live animals are harmed during the making of their products. So, if you love leather but avoid using it because of animal cruelty issues, this is the place to head to. All Khadi merchandise are of high quality and available at very reasonable prices. Lately, Khadi is quite a hit in the international market. Fashion designers are using the fabric to create everything from tote bags to bridal gowns.
