Kamal Haasan, the founder of Megastar and Makkal Needhi Maiam, says that khadi, the flag of India’s freedom struggle, not only represents the Native American character, but is also a fabric for all seasons. He claims it has the potential to reconnect with people and all it takes to make it happen is a good idea to cultivate this affinity.
The actor spoke on the sidelines of the launch of his clothing line called ‘KH House of Khaddar’, which went live on the occasion of the 73rd Republic Day. Breaking the stereotype around the fabric, he says: “Our first collection is not pompous. It answers questions like ‘What can khadi do for style and fashion?’ It can do everything that linen can, and much more.”
Recalling the label’s launch in Chicago in the fall of 2021, Kamal Haasan said, “It’s the Windy City and the temperature there can get frosty, but I could walk the streets in a three-piece khadi outfit, and the warmth held me up. I truly believe that khadi is a textile for all seasons.”
Commenting on the launch, Amritha Ram, designer and creative head of KH House of Khaddar said: “I want to make sure that in addition to presenting the designed element that would put KH House of Khaddar on the world map, we get the message that we Taking integral care of the three dimensions of sustainability: economic development, social development and environmental protection is my dream for Khadi.”
Talking about what separates khadi from others, said Ram; “The fluidity of matter! You can take care of the fabric however you want. It’s raw, beautiful and completely natural.”
The idea behind KH House of Khaddar is both to create a clothing line that showcases khadi as a textile, and to contribute to the upliftment of the handloom weavers in the country.
