Our cotton and silk robes are crafted from Khadi, the Indian name given for cloth that is handspun and handwoven. Khadi is incomparably soft and unrivalled for its beauty and delicate texture.
Immense skill and patience are required to produce Khadi which is achieved without the use of any electrically powered machinery.
￼Hand spinning creates yarn that is less stressed and damaged than machine processed cotton and is much softer to touch.
Unlike machine made cotton and silk, Khadi is full of life and small variations in the weave serve as lovely reminders that the cloth is handmade.
Robe de Voyage commissions its Khadi from a small cluster of spinners and weavers in West Bengal which remains the heart of
Khadi production in India.
