# Blouse piece attached with the saree About KHADI : Khadi or Khaddar is handmade, handspun and hand-woven cotton fabric made by thousands of skilled artisans living in rural areas. Cotton balls are hand-picked and separation of fibers from cotton seeds is done by hand using a sharp comb like object. Then by carding process the final traces of trash from fibers is removed completely and the carded material is then collected as 'Slivers'. These slivers are then spun into yarn on a spinning wheel where they are thinned out and twisted at the same time to strengthen it. The spun yarns are then wounded into reels of thousand meters each and then manufactured and hand woven into Khadi fabric. Khadi is cool, comfortable and truly environment friendly fabric suitable for all types of season. About HAND BLOCK PRINTING: Hand block printing is a centuries old Indian art form that utilizes a hand carved teak wood block that is dipped in dye and stamped by hand onto cotton or silk. The design for the block is usually a traditional Indian motif. The motif is traced onto a block by a master craftsman who then chips away at the block to create a stamp. Good printing requires skill and practice in order to create uniformity and clear block printing patterns. Small variations in the printing add to the unique charm of these handmade fabrics.
