Fashionista has brought together many unique fashion and lifestyle products under its umbrella, of which one is Khadi fabric by Artisans Gallery
Artisans Gallery (AG) is an ISO 9001:2008 certified entity involved in manufacturing of women apparels and accessories. The creations of AG are retailed through its own outlets and e-platforms under the brand name ‘AG’. ‘AG’ is promoting traditional pit-loom weaving by using Silk, Linen, Linen Cotton and fine Cotton for its creations.
As we know Khadi and non-violence were two powerful weapons with which Mahatma Gandhi equipped Indians to throw out British colonial rulers. Khadi continued to grow into prominence and a place of pride for Indians.
Fashion designers have found Khadi their canvas as imaginative creations. It is a ripe for re-incarnation as a livery of young surging India. A rising number of young fashion designers are seeking out local fabrics, craft and technique to give expression to this trend.
Khadi as defined by Gandhiji as a cloth hand woven from yarn handspun in India has been taken as legal definition of Khadi. These products are unique in the sense that they are one of a kind besides being truly “cottage” or “hand-spun” and “hand woven”. They are “flawed” and are not mindless creation of machines.
`Thus Artisans Gallery feel responsible in reviving the age old heritage of handicraft and make it a ‘Style Statement’ for woman of substance. They feel proud in informing you that the industry comprises of 100 % women employees. The brand ‘AG’ is also being headed by a woman herself, Ms. Neha Singh, Director of M/s Artisans Gallery.
Khadi as a fabric provides employment to the poor, gives earning to small cotton farmers, is eco-friendly, airy and has simplicity which gives it elegance and connects it to the freedom movement and Gandhian values.
Progressive Khadi activists and Khadi-lovers have realized its true value and are most vocal today for reforms and are voluntarily using the fabric.The basic approach being adopted is making Khadi activities artisan-centric without compromising the growth of this sector.
From a customer’s point of view, Khadi should be more accessible, well-priced, stylish enough to cater to the taste of urban India and to catch the imagination of the younger generation with a cultural resonance in the form of a pride just as the world has now recognized our economic resilience mainly due to a strong domestic market and in the past had found their way in the Gandhian values.
Their motto is to provide a limited edition of handcrafted women apparels and accessories to make women feel pampered. Prior to being part of Team AG, where every woman involved in the industry undergoes stringent refresher training on Industrial work, despite past experience and competence. Once trained at required level, they are involved in awesome creations with a class for ‘Women with Class’. The part of the revenue generated from the sale will be used for betterment of women and un-privileged through SSROH, a NGO working in the field.
Be a part of this unique Khadi movement by gifting Khadi products this Diwali and revisit the era of Gandhian Fabric with Fashionista Exhibitions at Raipur from 6th, 7th & 8th October 17 at Hotel Grand Imperial, Raipur.
