Kalamkhush handmade paper unit

Paper hand made and recycled from cotton rags. The unit is called Kalam Khush and it’s as old as the ashram itself. When you use handmade paper, remember that each sheet is made individually with a lot of love and skill. Below are some pictures from this unit at Gandhi Ashram, Ahmedabad.

KHADI
Khadi is an exclusive Indian textile, purely hand-spun and hand-woven from natural cotton using the traditional and manually operated spinning wheel called the ‘CHARKHA’. This process gives Khadi an extra ordinary texture and finish that cannot be found in any artificially made fibers. The small weaving errors give it the particular Khadi charm. In India, Khadi is not just a cloth, it is a whole movement started by Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi. The very reason that we have a range of products in Khadi that is growing with every passing day.
