Janapada x Narayani Khadi Towels

These khadi towels are a collaborative project between Ashtanga Narayani & the Janapada Seva Trust. Each towel is carefully crafted from locally-grown Indian cotton, hand-spun, dyed with natural dyes, and woven by a small community of dedicated artisans and farmers in the South Indian town of Melkote.

Janapada Seva Trust (JST) is a voluntary organisation established in 1960. Its activities are in and around Melkote, a small town in Mandya District of Karnataka, India. Inspired by the ideals of swaraj (self-rule) envisioned by Mahatma Gandhi and his associate economist J C Kumarappa, the Trust has been striving from the day of its inception towards creating a non-violent social order.

Thank you for supporting sustainable + grassroots initiatives.
