संद ♣ Intrinsic Existence ♣ Khadi Block Printed Top ~ 10
What is it about wide green fields, the open starry skies, the ever extending oceans, the mysteriously deep forests.... that we crave for... What is it about a pinch of salt,a regular supply of water, an afternoon nap or a cup of warm tea on a winter morning that makes us miss them if absent... What is it being in a 'free' that being in a 'bond'does not have, What is it that makes 'common' dearer to us than 'special'.... Its the luxury of being yourself.... at any place, at any cost, that makes us want it more than anything else... And that's Khadi for all of us...
The East India Company imported raw cotton from India while they dumped the local Indian market with inferior machine-made cloth. This led to a great decline in the handloom industry. The khadi weavers were first affected with the subsequent establishment of the powerlooms in India. Imitations of the hand-woven saris and garments were dished out, making it much cheaper and severly affecting the rural scenario. During the Second World War (1939-1945) majority of the Indians turned to hand woven saris.
This was further supported by the Swadeshi Movement initiated by Gandhiji where women turned to hand woven khadi fabric in order to shun the English machine made fabric. The effect of the mill spun fabric continued to affect the handloom sector even post-independence.The extent was so large that the Government of India had to ban powerlooms producing certain textiles, one such being the sari. The Government took active interest in reviving traditional saris to prevent it from extinction and provide handloom weavers with a livelihood through the Janata Scheme.
