    Actually, charkas have been around much longer than the european spinning wheels. you are mistaking the "Traditional" charka with the "Book" style charka. Ghandi started that contest to support self sufficiency. He wanted a more compact and portable device so that his peoples could start providing for themselves rather than just supplying the empires desires. but this is a wonderful Idea. I am going to have to try this. THis looks amazing!
