Khadi or khaddar is handspun and hand-woven cloth mainly made out of cotton. The cloth is usually woven from cotton and may also include silk, or wool, which are all spun into yarn on a spinning wheel called a charkha. It is a versatile fabric, cool in summer and warm in winter. In order to improve the look, Khadi is sometimes starched to give it a stiffer feel. It is widely accepted in fashion circles. Khadi is being promoted in Assam by Assam Khadi & Village Industries Board, Govt. of Assam.
