The History of Khadi Cotton
The history of Khadi cotton dates back to ancient times when handspun, handwoven fabrics were an essential part of Indian culture. However, it gained particular prominence during India's struggle for independence in the early 20th century. Under the leadership of Mahatma Gandhi, Khadi became a symbol of self-sufficiency and resistance against British colonial rule. Gandhi promoted Khadi as a means to empower rural communities, alleviate poverty, and promote unity among Indians.
One of the most remarkable aspects of Khadi cotton is the meticulous process of its creation. It involves spinning the cotton fibers into yarn using a traditional spinning wheel known as a charkha. The artisans then weave the yarn on handlooms, employing ancient techniques passed down through generations. This labor-intensive process not only ensures the highest quality fabric but also preserves age-old craftsmanship and sustains local communities.
Khadi cotton holds a significant place in the philosophy of slow fashion. Slow fashion is a movement that promotes sustainable and ethical practices in the fashion industry. Aiming to counter the detrimental effects of fast fashion. It emphasizes the value of conscious consumption, longevity of garments, and fair treatment of workers.
In the context of slow fashion, Khadi cotton embodies several essential principles. Firstly, it is a sustainable alternative to mass-produced textiles that often contribute to environmental degradation and exploitation of resources. By choosing Khadi cotton, individuals support a production method that relies on renewable resources, reduces carbon footprint, and minimizes waste.
Secondly, Khadi cotton is a testament to the preservation of traditional craftsmanship and the promotion of fair trade. The handspinning and handweaving techniques involved in its creation provide employment opportunities to artisans, especially in rural areas. By investing in Khadi cotton, consumers directly contribute to the economic well-being of skilled artisans. And this in turn, helps to sustain their craft.
Additionally, Khadi cotton encourages conscious consumption and the creation of timeless pieces. Its durability and versatility make it suitable for various occasions. Ensuring that garments made from Khadi cotton have a longer lifespan compared to fast fashion items. This promotes a shift away from the culture of disposable fashion, reducing waste and fostering a more sustainable approach to clothing.

Plant-Dyed Organic Garment Care Instructions
How maintain your long lasting sustainable natural fiber garments — learn how to take care of your products, while extending their lifecycle and vibrant colors.
— When it comes to washing your garment, you will want to wash on the “delicate” setting in cold water. Once complete, hang or lay your garment in the shade to dry.
— With all organic plant-dyed pieces, there is a possibility of natural bleed from the garment. Wearing your garment multiple times in between washes can help to prevent over-washing. We highly recommend using chemical-free detergent to keep these precious non-toxic garment pristine — even add a splash of white vinegar to preserve the color.

BeachCandy Swimwear Care Instructions
BeachCandy swim is carefully handcrafted locally in Los Angeles, made to last season after season when cared for properly.
Start by filling a basin with enough water to cover your swimwear. Soak your swimsuit with a capful of swimwear cleanser and repeat this hand wash process after each use and only in cool water.
Work the suds into and through the suit to clean all areas. We recommend soaking the swimsuit for 20-30 minutes until it does not smell like chlorine or the beach any longer. Hang it to dry naturally in a shady cool place.
Do not wring, wrap in a towel, or put in a plastic bag when wet. Chlorine and chemical exposure may increase the chances of damaging your suit. Rough surfaces, and/or heat may also shorten the life of your swimsuit fabric and Swarovski candy. We also recommend that you don’t accidentally toss your BeachCandy in a washing machine, dryer, or spot clean with harsh chemicals.
