Khadi Gramodyog Bhavan in Porbandar, Gujarat

The video is on Khadi Gramodyog Bhavan in Porbandar, State of Gujarat in India. Located amidst the bustle of the city it is a place where one can buy the handspun and hand woven khadi clothes. The raw materials used for making Khadi cloth are cotton, silk, or wool, which are spun into threads on a spinning wheel called a charkha.

Besides Khadi dress materials, Khadi Gramodyog Bhavan offers a collection of various Gujarati handicrafts made of brassware, decorative, lampshades and other ethnic artifacts.

Khadi Gramodyog Bhavan is not a mere marketing outlet for Khadi and Village Industries products but also its focuses on spreading the messages of Mahatma Gandhi. Khadi is a whole movement started by the Father of India, with the aim of boycotting foreign goods and there by promoting Indian handmade goods.
