Khadi is a term used for the fabrics that are handwoven and handspun with cotton fiber being the commonly used raw material. However, contrary to popular belief, khadi manufacturing can also be done from wool and silk, known as woolen or silk khadi respectively. The khadi fabric is well known for having a rugged texture, comfortable feel, and possessing the ability to keep people warm in the winter months while also helping them to stay cool during summer. Khadi was revved during the Independence movement and became a symbol of indigenous produce. The Indian National Flag is mandated to be manufactured only from khadi cotton, failing which there can be severe penalties amounting to imprisonment.
