Indian Designer Rajesh Pratap Singh on Khadi
Khadi in its Death Throes?
16 th Jan 2012
Khadi was once the preferred dress code of politicians and had acquired a fashionable ethnic, but chic image. Designers redefined their commitment to the fabric - from the likes of Ritu Kumar, who has worked with khadi for over 30 years, or younger ones like Sabyasachi, who devoted a wedding collection to the simple fabric. Rajesh Pratap Singh’s khadi work: Designer Rajesh Pratap Singh weaves Ambar khadi at his Faridabad factory. He has worked extensively with the fabric. "To me, khadi is not spartan. It has great texture and is a very pure fabric, which is why I love working with it. There’s a huge khadi community out there and we need to breathe new life into this fabric."
