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 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.
