Handwoven Cotton Top With Tie-Back Tassel String

Dama Dastakar

Popularised throughout history by Gandhi, Khadi formed the fabric for India’s stand on self-sufficiency and movement against imperialism. It still resonates with these ideals today, as women and men in rural India handweave this cloth with great skill and care to the rhythmic beats of a loom, earning themselves economic freedom. This fabric is hand-dyed at the yarn stage using natural dyes procured from the bark of trees, plants and leaves. The variations in dyeing lend this garment its own uniqueness and is a prized characteristic of natural dyeing. As kind to skin as it is to nature, natural dyeing is a craft form that has been handed down generations. Grassroot works with artisans in rural India to bring employment opportunities back, making every village a self-sustaining unit.
