About Muslin Khadi

Its not just a piece of cloth, its the Fabric of our nation.

What is Muslin Khadi?

Muslin is a type of finely-woven cotton fabric, introduced to Europe from the Middle East in the 17th Century. 

It became very popular at the end of the 18th century in Francy. Muslin is most typically a closely-woven unblreached or white cloth, produced from corded cotton yarn. 

Wide muslin is called “sheeting”. It is often used to make dresses or curtains but may also be used to complement foam for bench padding. Muslin breathes well, and is a good choice of material for clothing meant for hot, dry climates.

Origin of Muslin Khadi

Muslin clothes were traded by ancient Greeks from the East Indian port town Masulipatnam (present Machilipatnam of Krishna District in Andhra Pradesh) known as Maisolos and Masalia in ancient times

The name ‘Muslin’ originated from the name Maisolos.

In 1298 CE, Marco Polo describes the cloth Muslin in his book ‘The Travels’. He said that it is made in Mosul, (Iraq) and sold by marchants who were called “Musolini”.

Whatever is the origin, Muslin is said to be a Khadi variety i.e. handspun and hand-woven and best known since ancient times.
