Khadi ~ Magic Fiber ~

“I See God In Every Thread That I Draw On The Spinning Wheel....” (Gandhi)

⋘⋙

Khadi means hand-spun and handwoven cloth. The cloth is usually woven from cotton but also silk or wool , which are all spun into yarn on a spinning wheel called a charkha .

⋘⋙ 

Khadi is not merely a piece of cloth but a way of life.

⋘⋙

Mahatma Gandhi began promoting the spinning of khadi for rural self-employment and self-reliance (instead of using cloth manufactured industrially in Britain) in the 1920s in India . every village has planted and harvest its own raw-materials for yarn, every woman and man shall engage in spinning and every village shall weave there for by wearing Khadi you actually taking part of a super important ideology that support the freedom of handmade creation and against exploitation of the weaker society sectors.

⋘⋙

“If we have the 'khadi spirit' in us, we would surround ourselves with simplicity in every walk of life. The 'khadi spirit' means illimitable patience. For those who know anything about the production of khadi know how patiently the spinners and the weavers have to toil at their trade, and even so must we have patience while we are spinning 'the thread of Swaraj'. The 'khadi spirit' means also an equally illimitable faith. Even as the spinner toiling away at the yarn he spins by itself small enough, put in the aggregate, would be enough to clothe every human being in India, so must we have illimitable faith in truth and non-violence ultimately conquering every obstacle in our way.

⋘⋙

The 'khadi spirit' means fellow-feeling with every human being on earth. It means a complete renunciation of everything that is likely to harm our fellow creatures, and if we but cultivate that spirit amongst the millions of our countrymen, what a land this India of ours would be! And the more I move about the country and the more I see the things for myself, the richer, the stronger is my faith growing in the capacity of the spinning wheel "

( Ghandi )
