Naming the Brand
Our concept is basically about bringing out the beauty of 100 percent organic, natural fabrics and achieving a distinguished mark of excellence so the name had to be concomitant. That was when we thought of “Godwit” which was an inspiration from a long bailed bird which flies unmatchable high, representing our standards of work.
How was Godwit Khadi Born
Godwit Khadi aims at reviving the ancient Indian styles of craftsmanship as well as promote the usage of Khadi and Raw Silk as mainstream fashion. We create statement looks by combining elements from western and traditional cultures giving our garments all the more oomph factor.
We believe in a fair trade policy by equally sharing profits with our partner farmers and craftsmen. We want to preserve our rich traditional heritage for the future generations.
Technology can bring about a silent economic revolution ushering in economic decentralization as well as economic democracy. Our team believes in returning to nature as much as we can .We at Godwit invest ourselves in presenting to you the best of sustainable fashion, so if you choose us, you choose the environment!!
If you choose well, a never ending circle of good starts with an unemployed farmer getting work. You become the reason for a farmer not committing suicide. Farmer gets more, he produces more, we get more of fabric initiating higher scale of production, which means more work as well as fair wages to our craftsmen.

Founder & Designer: Namita Sharma
I always aspired to be a designer, my love for colours pampered that too. Even though I did not take any formal education in fashion and design I knew I wanted to design clothes which aligned my father’s interest for khadi. Nature, travelling and cultural diversity have influenced my design sensibility and my love for adventure instils the risk-taking factor in me. A-symmetry, quirkiness, fabric manipulation are key elements of my collections.
1. We want to bring hand spun khadi as a mainstream fabric to the ready to wear fashion scene.
