Khadi, the heritage fabric of India, is all set to catch eyeballs during Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s two-day visit to Bangladesh on March 26 and 27.

Khadi and Village Industries Commission (KVIC) has supplied 100 custom-designed “Mujib coats” that will be the attire of dignitaries during the visit of the prime minister of India.

“Mujib coat” is famed as the signature garment worn by Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.

As Bangladesh celebrates “Mujib Borsho”, the birth centenary of Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, Indira Gandhi Cultural Centre of the Indian High Commission in Dhaka, had placed an order for 100 Mujib coats, ahead of Modi’s visit.

The specially designed Mujib coats have been made of high quality handcrafted Poly Khadi fabric.

The black Mujib coats have been designed with 6 buttons, two pockets on the lower half and a front pocket on the left, as worn by Bangabandhu.

In keeping with the eco-friendly nature of the Khadi fabric, the covers for these jackets too have been made of black Khadi cotton fabric with Khadi India’s logo embroidered over it.

These coats will be carried in specially designed plastic-mixed handmade paper carry bags made at KVIC’s Kumarappa National Handmade Paper Institute (KNHPI) in Jaipur, according to the Press Information Bureau of India.

KVIC Chairman Vinai Kumar Saxena said: “Mujib coat is historically significant in Bangladesh and it is a matter of great pride that Mujib coats made of Khadi will be adorned during the Bangladesh visit of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who is the biggest brand ambassador of Khadi.”

Saxena continued: “Mujib coat is an immensely popular outfit in Bangladesh. For the older generation, Mujib coat is symbolic of the ideology of great leader Sheikh Mujibur Rahman while it has increasingly become a fashion statement for the youths of Bangladesh.”

"Likewise, Khadi, the heritage fabric of India, is a unique blend of tradition and fashion. Mujib coats made of Khadi will add significantly to the historical and cultural values of the celebrations," he said.

This will also promote Khadi on the global and diplomatic platform in a big way, he added.

The diplomatic consignment has already been dispatched to Dhaka. Since the jackets were meant for diplomatic purposes, KVIC accorded top priority to it and delivered the consignment before time.
