A W A: E K - A Way Ahead: Ethical Khadi >>

  • Fashion and Textile Museum 83 Bermondsey Street London SE1 3XF United Kingdom (map)

Khadi, the unique hand-spun, hand-woven fabric of India, has a beautiful texture and feel. Join experts to explore the potential of khadi to become one of the most ethical and environmentally sustainable fabrics. Khadi is not just a fabric. It has a history and culture which includes Gandhi, the Indian freedom movement and today’s growing commitment to ethical fashion.

Khadi is a complete production cycle from farm to fabric. It has great potential for scaling up from small grassroots clusters, being based on organic farming and integrating solar energy use. The concept and technology for creating zero carbon, zero poverty fabrics could be adopted globally. Join us to discuss how we can work towards this.
