Event description

Description

Khadi, the unique hand-spun, hand-woven fabric of India, has a beautiful texture and feel. Join experts to explore the potential of khadi to become one of the most ethical and environmentally sustainable fabrics.

Khadi is not just a fabric. It has a history and culture which includes Gandhi, the Indian freedom movement and today’s growing commitment to ethical fashion.

Khadi is a complete production cycle from farm to fabric. It has great potential for scaling up from small grassroots clusters, being based on organic farming and integrating solar energy use. The concept and technology for creating zero carbon, zero poverty fabrics could be adopted globally. Join us to discuss how we can work towards this.

This is an afternoon / evening event. It will explore:

  • Khadi production - ethically and sustainably managed and environment friendly
  • Community building - supporting small, localised community clusters globally and creating successful innovative business models
  • Ethical Fashion - Linking with current thinking on sustainability and ethics in the fashion industry
  • A Khadi Way: developing a movement for more socially and environmentally responsible lifestyles


The workshop will have presentations, group discussions and a concluding speech.

A free event with exhibition entry will be hosted by the Museum from 11.30 to 12.30 in the morning.

Please Note: Photographs, audio and video recordings will be made for documentation purposes.

The venue is on First Floor. Lift access is available.
