Union Minister of State (Independent Charge) for Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises, Giriraj Singh launched an exclusive western and ethnic designer wear line in New Delhi.
The launch ceremony was organised at Khadi Bhawan at Connaught Place in New Delhi on July 30.
He lauded Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s call to make Khadi the signature fabric of India and a means for the economic transformation of the country.
Singh was hopeful that Khadi would become a global fabric in coming days. He also appreciated Khadi and Village Industries Commission (KVIC) for its high growth in sales as well as annual turnover in the last four years.
“Khadi being a natural fibre, hand-spun, and hand-woven with zero-carbon footprint would soon become favourite among youth,” said KVIC Chairman Vinai Kumar Saxena.
