The people of India used the fabric as a civil protest. In which the people boycotted factory made clothing that was run by their British colonizers.
Colonial rule was running all the factories in India and using Indian cloth. So the people refused to support that, and started to make their own fabric which is now known as Khadi. It symbolized national spirit and showed the respect the people have for their culture and land.
Not only does Khadi resemble a time of strength and dignity for the people of India, but embodies much more. The fabric pays tribute to the Indian culture, times they went through, and the talents of the artisans in the village. As well as that, the process to make Khadi is friendly to the people and the Earth.

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.
