Khadi is the fabric of freedom struggle and the Father of the nation. Mahatma Gandhi developed the concept of Khadi as a means to provide employment to the unemployed rural population and make them self-reliant. Our Hon’ble PM has given the mantra of ‘Khadi for Nation, Khadi for Fashion’, and Khadi is now seen as a fashion statement. It is now used in denim, jackets, shirts, dress material, stoles, home furnishings, and apparel accessories like handbags.
With an objective of promoting Khadi and Village Industries, Handloom and handicraft products, ODOP products, and products of various traditional and cottage industries manufactured locally or by SHGs and to further promote the idea of the “Vocal for Local” campaign and ‘AtmaNirbhar Bharat Abhiyan’ envisioned by the Hon’ble Prime Minister, Govt. of India has initiated a special campaign “Khadi Mahotsav”. The campaign is being organized across the country from 2nd October to 31st October every year.
The campaign is aimed at sensitizing the youth towards Khadi, ‘Vocal for Local’ and making them aware of their benefits to our economy, ecology & women's empowerment and to encourage the public at large & youth in particular to buy Khadi & other local products and inculcate in them pride for local products.
