Posted on: August 06, 2021 | Back | Print

7th National Handloom Day will be celebrated on 7 August 2021 in honour of the handloom weavers/workers and their unique contribution to the socio-cultural development of the country. Handloom is an important source of livelihood in rural and semi-rural parts of our country. It is a sector that directly addresses women’s empowerment with over 70% of all weavers and allied workers being female. Rooted in nature, it has eco-friendly production processes with minimal requirement of capital and power, and provides inherent flexibility to innovate to meet changes in fashion trends and fast-changing customer preferences.
