I like to wear Kaumudi material kurta because they allow my skin to breathe in hot weather and they keep out the cold to an extent in chilly weather. They drape well too and respond well to a steam press.Mr. Rabindranath, AOL
I love you Dr. Sharmila. I find Kaumudi a honest representation of the work you do. It is like seeing worship. It is like passion personified.Dr. Vani Padmaja,
First of all I would like to congratulate for the success going on with Kaumudi. I am really very happy to get associated with Kaumudi. Although its not a long journey till now but the bondage became very strong and for every occasion when we feel like to look different from others definitely I look towards KAUMUDI and I get a beautiful response. The products made are beautifully designed and in a way we start feeling as if we are different from the rest of the world. Hope the journey continues throughout for a long time... Thank you once again to one and all there who have put their soul for creating the unique patterns and designs. :)Mrs. Neelima,
Handloom and Khadi have been there for many ages in India.
Handloom is a fabric which is woven on a wooden loom (which could be a frame loom, pit loom, or a strap loom etc). It is operated by person who is skilled to follow the weaving process step by step. It uses machine spun cotton, silk, synthetic or a blend to make a fabric. It was a tradition that followed to create a particular weave for that region or culture.
Khadi is the most stunning fabric India invented and used as the most powerful tool in the non violence freedom movement of India by Gandhiji. Khadi is a handloom in all senses but has more consciousness attached to it as it uses hand spun yarn which is made by expert spinners. Khadi is therefore a precision fabric hand spun and hand woven.
Organic cotton is a natural, renewable, environmental, and biodegradable fiber. Cotton is grown without the use of toxic and carcinogenic chemicals. It benefits the cotton growers and the environment around the globe. As it doesn’t use chemicals what so ever the health risks to the farmers are nil and social benefits are high as it involves the whole community to raise a healthy farming community.
Organic cotton is used to turn raw material into clothes, towels, bedding and other items that we can put next to our skin every day without the fear of harsh chemicals.
Cotton is the good to be the second skin. As it is a natural plant product it is the most comfortable fabric next to skin to wear to use as garments, towels, bed sheets, and other home textiles.
Linen is made of cellulosic fibers derived from the stem of the flax plant. The flax plant gives long, strong and lustrous fiber which is used to make linen fabric. They are cool, absorbent fabrics that wrinkle easily.
Linen is comfortable, good strength, twice as strong as cotton, hand-washable or dry-cleanable, crisp to tailor, well absorbent to dyes and prints, no static or pilling problems, fair abrasion resistant available in light to heavy weights.
Linen as a fabric is a brand in itself and is seen as the most luxurious clothing items in today’s fashion. It has its tremendous benefits when woven on handlooms.
Handloom fabrics are all crafted piece by piece yard by yard by hand. All the processes involved are people oriented and done with pure consciousness. The pre-loom, loom, and post-loom are all done by skilled workers. They need to earn a fair wage for what they create.
If you keep the above information in mind, handloom is not expensive. It’s the value you pay for a hand woven product. Keeping the wage laws of the world handloom is the most inexpensive fabrics available.
If one compares fabric made by air jet loom, laser loom, and other power loom to handloom it seems expensive. But, let’s be fair and compare apples to apples !!!
