To promote more and more Khadi, 375 new institutions were established after 2015 to the till date. While, previously between the years 2004-2014, only 110 new institutions were established. Khadi is slowly taking over the clothing market, and continuing the thoughts of Mahatma Gandhi. We believe that Khadi is not just the material. It is thought, it is the lifestyle, and it is the ideology of our beloved “Bapu”. With Khadi products, we can still support the ideology of Mahatma Gandhi.
