Silk – the queen of all fabrics is historically one of India’s most important industries. India producesa variety of silks called Mulberry, Tasar, Muga and Eri, based on the feeding habit of the cocoons.The sericulture industry today employs over 700,000 farm families and is mostly concentrated in Karnataka, Tamilnadu and Andhra Pradesh and to some extent Assam and West Bengal. Karnataka accounts for more than 70 percent of the country’s total silk production.Khadi, or Khaddar, is a traditional fabric from India that was popularized by Mahatma Ghandiji before the independence.

Before, it was only worn by rural people and political leaders, and its manufacture was quite limited. Khadi was encouraged by Ghandiji as an alternative and a statement against wearing British clothes. The Indian flag is also made of  Khadi, adding to its significance as a national symbol.Today, the population demands more khadi than the manufacturers can supply due to its increasing popularity as a worthy addition to one’s wardrobe. Early forms of khadi had coarse textures, but recently, khadi has been made with cotton, silk, and wool, making it more comfortable, and hence, more popular.
