House of Khadi are looking to raise £10,000 to cover production costs of all five shirt designs (delivered to the UK.) We have a superb relationship with a Fairtrade-registered factory in Southern India where they have 'state of the art' Japanese equipment and two in-house quality control experts overseeing productions. It is imperative to us that the production process is precise and that all our House of Khadi shirts are made to the very highest standard. Our fabric is so luxurious and special that the finish has to be perfect.
All the money raised will be used as 'working capital' We both receive our own income generated from other sources... So will not be drawing a wage whilst our brand is growing.
We've both reached a juncture in our fashion journeys whereby we only wanted to produce products of the highest standard both ethically and in terms of quality.
Our aim is to sell and market our 'slow fashion' shirts from high calibre outlets/shops to the best beach resorts of the world (our cotton really lends itself beautifully to the hotter climates and is the ultimate 'lightweight' holiday shirt...) and ONLINE. This is a luxury product and the outlets we sell in will be chosen with the utmost care.
Khadi is a Sanskrit translation of cotton and means 'hand-spun' and 'hand-woven'
HOUSE OF KHADI cloth is woven from cotton grown locally in rural India. The cotton is spun into yarn on a spinning wheel called a charkha. It is an extremely versatile fabric that keeps you cool in the summer and warm in the winter.
In India, khadi is not just a cloth it is a whole movement initiated by Gandhi.

Risks and challenges
We have done extensive groundwork in securing a good supply of Khadi in India . Our Khadi suppliers ( 3rd generation) have assured us that they will be able to keep up with demand as we grow. There are currently many other nearby villages waiting and ready to get on board to provide us with fabric when our orders increase. Our Khadi suppliers have a good and established relationship with the cotton growers and Khadi producing villagers in West Bengal.
The Fairtrade factory that stitch our shirts are well-established and are currently making shirts for other well known brands in the UK, Europe and the US.
We've thought through and imagined all worse case scenarios and outcomes and feel pretty confident that we have covered all possibilities... That said, our community of supporters will be the first to know if anything unexpected happens.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
