Khadi, India

Arcana’s smart, graphic cotton is a traditional handwoven variety from India called khadi. Handspun and handwoven, this natural textile experienced a revival when Mahatma Ghandi encouraged Indians to embrace their heritage and rejuvenate national industry by making fabric at home.

Arcana’s khadi is produced by the charitable organization Women Weave, which employs vulnerable women, particularly widows and the handicapped, in impoverished rural areas of India. Women Weave trains these women in sustainable farming, handspinning, and the handloom, and further educates them in business entrepreneurship. When the women graduate from the program as financially independent skilled artisans, they earn a leadership role that empowers them to make business decisions with their collective, and to spread the social outreach and technical training to other impoverished communities.

Women Weave is dedicated to serving as a mentor for these textile entrepreneurs, providing guidance and access to both the larger community of Indian weavers and selling opportunities abroad. Moreover, the environment and sustainable agriculture remain central concerns to the organization, which favors organic cotton and natural, non-toxic dyes.
