Love Khadi Love Cotton Rack- First giveaway from Jaipur

I received an email from Vinayak when he heard about my Jaipur trip from a common friend. Vinayak along with his partner Rameshwari founded Cotton Rack over a year ago . They both had worked with brands like Fab India, ColorPlus etc before they decided that they wanted to reinvent Khadi garments in a more modern way.

Vinayak is a lovely host and can talk for hours :) He enlightened me a bit about the state of Khadi in the country , the Pink City and the various designers and e-commerce portals and yes introduced me to a National award winner block printer in Sanganer .

Rameshwari is the quieter of the two , the pretty lady is mainly responsible for designing the brand’s outfits. I think she is not just extremely talented but also understands the pulse of the consumer really well and perfectly complements Vinayak .

What follows is some pictures I took in their Jaipur studio. All garments are made of 100% pure handspun Khadi.Cotton Rack has been selling through online stores as well as through five different stores across the country. They are still in their initial forming days and planning to add more products to the range. You can view their  earlier collections on their Pinterest page (https://www.pinterest.com/cottonrack/).

  1. I would like to wear a kurta in the cotton fabric. The colours are great, and the weave looks soft and comfortable. Love the muffler colours, especially the orange.
    Love the fact they are using natural fabric.

  2. Hello, I would love to wear a dress made of Khadi.
    I love Khadi for being skin friendly and its the best fabric to wear in the extremely hot weather of Delhi. I have my eyes on the purple/orange muffler :)

    Ant!

  3. After going through the two facebook pages, I like all the various areas khadi fabric is used currently by you’ll. Would definitely love to see Khadi being used/ made into fashion accessories and office stationeries.

  4. It’s a nice collection plus I have scrolled through your collection for view on fb. It’s pure and neat. Maybe adding on to a little more on prints may help. And also can be a bit more experimental with necklines and sleeve styles.

    Thanks a ton for promoting yourself or else would have never known about this!!

  5. I would love to wear a khadi dress and a khadi saree. My choices are for a reason that, both dress and saree, are very very rarely worn by me. I would like to explore the elegance of new attire in fresh fabric like Khadi, and celebrate the free spirit of woman and India.

  6. Khadi love because it’s the symbol of freedom. It’s synonymous to a simple rooted living in the urban jungle. Cotton rack love for their sheer dedication to a lost art. Without people like them, wardrobes would be a dull amalgamation of labels, same repeating names of global trends n styles without identity.
    Sarees are what I would love to see from them, a twist of fashion to the drape of cultures. Make a half saree, a saree that’s to be draped over denims. Fashion, crafts n minimalism woven together with lots of love.

  7. I got to know Khaadi fabrics in Pakistan. They are wonderful to wear and have the most beautiful structure. I would love to have a trouser from Khaadi fabric since this is something I don’t have …

  8. If given a chance I would definitely love to wear a Khadi Saree as it spells a magnetic charm. Looks elegant and royal, all set for meaningful purpose debarring nonsense talks ! Speaks class and its charm :)
    I love khadi because of following reasons –
    1. It incorporates a sense of patriotism. It actually recalls the history – Khadi movement and our very own *Bapu* who struggled a lot for our freedom!
    2. Its texture, origin and magic of being hand-woven makes me feel elite and fortunate one !
    3. The best part about khadi is …its a versatile fabric, cool in summer and warm in winter :)
    4. Fashion seems to be revived when you adore this, stiffer looks gives you a edgy look :)

  9. I love wearing khadi kurtis.I like khadi bags, sarees & dresses which are poly blend with khadi.I also love shirts and tops made from Khadi and the reason is because khadi is comfortable, airy and is the pride of India because it played a role in the India’s freedom struggle.:)
