In a small and beautiful gathering in Thenur village near Madurai, the Kapas brand of renewed Khadi was launched. The Madurai based CCD and Auroville based Upasana Studio came together to launch this brand in Madurai on Sept 22nd, the day Gandhiji gave up wearing elaborate clothing in the same town saying 'we should be able to make more Khadi for every Indian'.

Several local Panchayat Leaders, farming leaders and women's groups participated apart from organic farmers, spinners and weavers who attended with their families.
