Author(s) Neelam Patel
Country India
Abstract Mahatma Gandhi always comes to mind when we hear the name Khadi. Though the fabric known as khadi has long been associated with Indian history, it was Mahatma Gandhi who bestowed the name on it.There are numerous instances of hand-spun and hand-woven textiles made of natural fibers throughout Indian history. Ghandi revived Khadi as a means of obtaining freedom prior to India's independence from the British through the Swadeshi movement, which rejected foreign goods and promoted the idea of an independent, self-sustaining India. Ghandi revived Khadi as a means of obtaining freedom prior to India's independence from the British through the Swadeshi movement, which rejected foreign goods and promoted the idea of an independent, self-sustaining India.
Even with government measures to support this industry, Khadi's popularity fell following Independence. Designers first began utilising Khadi in the 1990s, and ever since then, a lot of designers have updated, used, and pushed Khadi.
This essay aims to determine the level of khadi consciousness among learners in college. Students who wear khadi clothes were requested to participate in a quick survey in the college, and their thoughts on the style, quality, cost, and even the garment's status symbol were noted.
Mumbai was chosen as the location for data collection. To ascertain the level of awareness regarding Khadi products and brand, interviews with youth and senior members of the industry have been conducted.
Keywords Khadi, Awareness, web space, youth, handmade.
