Abstract:
India has a kind of fabric known by Indian people as khadi. This fabric was introduced by Gandhiji in 1920. It is considered that khadi is one of the most beautiful Indian fabric because the khadi wearer gets a distinguishable look due to its style and way of production. Besides this, khadi has the unique property of keeping the wearer warm in winter and cool in the summer season and eco friendly. Due to these reasons, it is preferred by most Indians. But still, in the present time, most youths have an outdated reputation about the khadi, as it is an uneven, coarse and old fashioned fabric. Thus, this study was planned to gather information from youth about their awareness regarding khadi and khadi products. The study was conducted in two universities i.e., Govind Ballabh Pant University of Agriculture and Technology, Pantnagar and Thakur Dev Singh Bisht (DSB), Nainital campus located in Udham Singh Nagar and Nainital districts respectively from Kumaon region of Uttarakhand state of India. In the present study, a survey method was used for data collection and a self-structured questionnaire cum interview schedule was used as a tool. A stratified random sampling method was used for sample selection. A total of one hundred females between 21-31 years of age were selected as the sample size for the study. Collected data analyzed by using frequency and percentage. It is also observed that all age groups from both the district have awareness regarding the Khadi products i.e., type of yarn used, fabric parameters such as thickness, type of products which were available at Shri Gandhi Aashram.
