Khadi is a term for handspun and hand-woven cloth which are all spun into yarn on a spinning wheel called a charkha. It is a versatile fabric, cool in summer and warm in winter.
In India, Khadi is not just a cloth, it is a whole movement started by Gandi. The Khadi movement promoted an ideology, an idea that Indians could be self-reliant on cotton and be free from the high priced goods and clothes which the British were selling to them. The khadi movement aimed at boycotting foreign goods including cotton and promoting Indian goods, thereby improving India's economy.
