This is a beautiful organic khadi cotton, from Gujarat in India. It’s made from two shades of blue for a gorgeous depth of colour - a dark blue weft and a lighter blue in the warp. That is, dark blue threads going horizontally across the fabric and light blue threads going vertically.
It’s a lightweight cotton that moves beautifully in the wind, and would work wonderfully for almost all my designs!
This gives the fabric a gorgeously deep colour, and both catch the light really well. As you move, the different tones shimmer through for a piece that looks like it’s come to life!
This is certified khadi organic cotton from India, so its provenance has been rigorously verified and its environmental contribution is minimal. You can read more about khadi cotton on the blog, and find out all about its certification process.
