Khadi Cotton

Khadi cotton is used for tableware such as table cloths, napkins and table runners. The raw material for the khadi cotton has been collected at cotton spinning mills in northern Bangladesh. There, a lot of cotton waste is generated in the process of making the yarn.

Low impact sourcing & production process

1. 100% handmade

Khadi cotton is made from waste cotton which is collected by hand, sorted and hand spun into cotton threads. These can be used to make textiles and can be easily dyed if needed.

2. Electricity free production

The whole production process happens by hand on a traditional handloom and without electricity.

Khadi and Ghandi

Khadi (or khādī ) was promoted by Mahatma Gandhi in the India of the 1920s. The Khadi movement encouraged the spinning of textiles for rural self-employment and self-reliance instead of using cloth manufactured industrially in Britain.

Creating job opportunities

one craftsperson needs 1 day to make 1-2 table cloths or 3-4 table runners
From harvesting until the end product, the entire process is executed by hand and/or with the support of simple traditional tools. Multiple people have to be involved, which means more jobs and income for the rural communities.
