Asma Hussain explained about her collection-
"I have used the Khadi material which many people are not aware of . It is from our rich handicrafts heritage for which India was famous for and earned highest revenue and foreign exchange during 15 to18 century . The new techniques developed new textiles named Kimkhwab, Zarbaft ( brocade), Jamawaar, Jaamdaani, etc during those centuries were famous world over. During that time the textile industry was hand driven Which is now called handloom or Khadi as most of the yarn then were hand spun and fabrics handwoven, which now is the definition for khadi in order to protect the traditional heritage textiles of India.
Using these textiles I have designed the collection 'Mehfil'
