Institute of Fashion Designing and Khadi, Paithani Research and Training Centre

Vasundhara Sanman

It was founded by Mahatma Gandhi Mission in 2010 with a mandatory rule of not using chemicals in the processes used for making Khadi. The cloth or fabric is dyed by using organic colors extracted from vegetables, fruits, roots and seeds. The spinning charkhas operate on solar energy to ensure zero carbon emission. Since Khadi is a handspun, hand-woven, hand-dyed and hand-printed fabric, it is their motto to encourage people to THINK about NATURE and WEAR NATURE! On 2nd October 2014, they gave an oath to 3000 people (all wearing Khadi) that included a promise to wear Khadi on 2nd October every year hereafter. Students and the entire MGM staff wholeheartedly agreed to fulfill this promise.
