Khadi wool knits/Conscious fashion. >Photo by 11.11

Khadi wool fabric developments, in Gujarat, for 11.11, in 2013.

A sustainable & conscious fashion project close to my heart

Circular and linear knit development done in Khadi wool at a Khadi Gram Udyog, a little outside of Ahmedabad, Gujarat. These were done on hand knitting machines, circular and linear. The knitting is mainly done by rural women, who work here for about 7 hours every day.

The energy here was so lovely, the women loved to joke around with me while we did our explorations. The exercise to model the pieces they were making also became a lot of fun.
