Khadi And Village Industries

Weaving stories with cotton

Khadi has long been an integral part of India’s social fabric. The hand spun and woven cloth was presented by Mahatma Gandhi as a symbol of nationalism, equality and self-reliance. He saw a way of providing relief to those who were poverty stricken and launched the movement for Khadi in 1918.

Carrying Gandhi’s vision forward, the Khadi and Village Industries Public Charitable Trust (KVIPCT) started producing Khadi in 1950. Since then, various families in the community are involved in manufacturing Khadi and village industries products in order to cater to the demands of various places across Tamil Nadu.

It provides direct and indirect employment to 2000 families and acts as a nucleus for rural industrialization.
