The Essence Of Khadi

​When nothing feels good in our hot summer country, only Khadi does. Our indigenous textile is truly made for India and it’s heat. Beat the heat with khadi. Here is an outfit from my closet absolutely made for summer.

My khadi kurta with some simple prints was an extremely light wear that helped me get through my whole working day with quite less of burning.

For khadi,  the best choice of colour is off-white. Nothing suits it better than this. It’s always best to keep other colours nominal on this material as to not ruin it’s rawness. Self coloured or neighbouring coloured works can make it look even better for the major part. For borders, deep shades are good as to highlight the confined body part.

For a colour combination I chose red leggings to actually highlight my kurta. As I said above, dark shades helps to highlight the light ones when they are in majority and priority of the outfit.

Hair left open with natural curls was the best option to carry this simple kurta. Make up kept nominal (specially for summer). I just used Kohl pencil to highlight my eyes and a light shade of brown as my lipstick.

For accessories, I just wore a small pair of jhumkas from Shantiniketan, the place of our old heritage and rich culture related to Rabindranath Tagore. It’s in Bolpur, West Bengal.       Now it’s mainly based on handmade art and craft, hand woven cloth and hand stitchef embroideries. This Kurta is also themed on Shantiniketan artistry.
