KaskomのSwaminathan Vがタミルナド州の農民らと手がけている、在来種コットンのカルンガニコットン。








Kalungani Cotton is indigenous cotton in Tamil Nadu.
which Kaskom’s Swaminathan V works closely with farmer to produce.
Since 2020 Calico has been introduced as part of Gaam no Otlo.

The difference between Kalungani Cotton and other cotton is the oil content.
Kalungani fabric does not absorb water easily, but gradually people are attracted to its texture and how the fabric ages after using and its robust characteristic which is unique to pure cotton.

India, the country of cotton origin, 96% of it has already been replaced by genetically modified American-derived cotton. Swaminathan researched on the lost origin cotton of Tamil Nadu and see its potential to help farmers.

Kalungani Cotton roots are as long as 6 feet (approximately 180 cm), it can be grown using only rainfall and ground water. It does not require special irrigation equipment, pesticides, fertilizers, or other investments, so even small-scale farmers can start production. It has also been found that mixed cropping with coriander and kalonji can lower production risks, and can be harvested about three times a year. The farmers, who were skeptical at first, are finding joy in being able to grow the cotton that was native to their land, as well as earn extra income. Continuation very much dependent on the demand.

Kalungani color is unbleached Kinari. Little blackish grains (cotton seeds and dregs) are mixed and can be seen on the surface of the fabric. Because it has two warps, it is a little thicker and more solid than the one with one warp.
One of the charms of raw cotton is the slightly rough weave that is handspun from short fibers.

*There is also "Tamil Nadu Native Kalungani Cotton (1×1)".
