This cotton khadi is produced in Ponduru, Andhra Pradesh. Ponduru is the only place in India where khadi is 100% handmade. A jaw of a local fish is used to align cotton fibers and thread is spun using a spinning wheel only. Ponduru khadi made from red cotton and hill cotton ( a locally grown cotton) is always in short supply and is mostly exported.
The warp is mill yarn while the weft is khadi, handspun yarn. The khadi thread for this saree is produced using Ambar Charkha a modern replacement of traditional spinning wheel. Sri Umachandra Weavers Society from Srikakulum district has been balancing the true spirit of khadi with modern needs.
