  1. khadi, khaddar(noun)

    a coarse homespun cotton cloth made in India


  1. Khādī

    Khādī or Khaddar is a term for handspun and hand-woven cloth in India and Pakistan. The raw materials may be cotton, silk, or wool, which are spun into threads on a spinning wheel called a charkha. It is a versatile fabric, cool in summer and warm in winter. However, being a cruder form of material, it wrinkles much faster than other preparations of cotton. In order to improve the look, khādī/khaddar is often starched to give it a stiffer shape. It is widely accepted in fashion circles.
