If you are a big-time Khadi fan, this news will definitely make you smile. Have you ever thought that you could match your Khadi attire with the material of your footwear? What seemed hard in the past will now become a reality. In current developments, the Khadi and Village Industries Commission has actually introduced India’s first-ever Khadi material footwear on Wednesday.
Speaking at the launch event of the shoes via video conferencing, Union MSME Minister Nitin Gadkari stated each pair of shoes and sandals is priced between Rs 1,100 to Rs 3,300 At first, 15 designs for female shoes and 10 styles for male shoes have actually been presented.
The specialty of these footwears is that they will bear popular paintings from across India consisting of the famous Madhubani painting. This experiment has actually been done to promote the numerous art types in the nation together with the Khadi material.
The footwear will be sold on the Khadi and Village Industries Commission portal.
Highlighting the potential of the country’s shoes sector for work generation and exports, Gadkari said: ‘I believe that after China and the United States, India is the third-largest shoes producer internationally. It is a Rs 1.45 lakh crore industry with a domestic market of Rs 85,000 crore and exports of Rs 45,000 to Rs 55,000 crore’.
The minister said he will request actor-turned-politician Hema Malini to endorse the Khadi footwear on a pro bono basis and become its brand ambassador.
Let’s not forget that for Mahatma Gandhi Khadi was not just a homespun cloth however an innovative idea. Khadi, for him, was symbolic of Indian self-esteem and self-reliance. Contemporary writer Peter Gonsalves argues in his book Clothing for Freedom that Khadi was used by Gandhiji less as a garment however more as a message to both Indians and the British. According to Gonsalves, versus the British, khadi was used as a sign of homogeneity, absence of status, simplicity, and nakedness or consistent clothing.
