gandhi liked to make his own clothing

he became skilled at creating homespun, refusing to buy british goods which destroyed local economies, gandhi only bought local or rather, handmade his own clothing, as did his wife & disciples. he was a strong proponent of removing poverty in small villages by bringing back their local skills and boycotting expensive imports.  i learned this after beginning the project & thought it was a wonderful connecting point.
