India’s First Ever Khadi Fabric Footwear Launched

The Khadi and Village Industries Commission (KVIC) on Wednesday launched India’s first-ever khadi fabric footwear in presence of Union Minister Nitin Gadkari.

Speaking at the launch event of the footwear via video conferencing, Union MSME Minister Gadkari congratulated Khadi artisans for designing such attractive footwear and said: “Their (artisans) efforts will definitely give a boost to the khadi industry and will also help in increasing local employment. For the first time in the country, khadi fabric shoes were launched through video conferencing. Our appeal to Prime Minister Narendra Modi is that khadi usage should increase.”

The Union Minister informed that each pair of khadi shoes is priced between Rs 1,100 to Rs 3,300. Initially, 15 designs for female footwear and 10 designs for male footwear have been introduced.

These footwears will bear paintings from across the country including the famous Madhubani painting. This unique initiative has been taken to promote the various art forms of India along with the khadi fabric.

Gadkari also launched the online sale of khadi footwear through KVIC’s e-portal www.khadiindia.gov.in. (ANI)
