Khadi to get a makeover in Bihar

Nov '15
The Bihar government has tied up with the Patna unit of the National Institute of Fashion Technology (NIFT) to rebrand khadi with a global appeal and make it more appealing for the fashion conscious youth.

Under an agreement between the Bihar State Khadi Gramudyog Board and the NIFT to rejuvenate khadi for the new generation, the brand, now named 'Santiti' will be officially launched on November 22 at the Bihar Pavilion of the India International Trade Fair 2015, according to an agency report.

Over the past decade, the Patna unit of the NIFT has been working on several projects on Bihar, and the Santiti project seeks to take khadi to contemporary global standards. The idea is to "reboot" the khadi industry, and make the youth connect to their heritage , said Sanjay Shrivastava Director, NIFT-Patna.

He said the garments which are targeted at the youth, have been designed from the fabric produced by the weavers of Bihar, sourced through the Khadi Board. The garments incorporate the current trends of fashion, he said.

NIFT-Patna's role will be that of a consultant for the Board for a period of three years, the report said. (SH)
