Textile Ministry to celebrate 7th National Handloom Day tomorrow

Textile Ministry will celebrate the 7th National Handloom Day tomorrow. The handloom weaving community will be honoured for their contribution in the socio-economic development of this country.

It is a sector that directly addresses women’s empowerment with over 70 per cent of all weavers and allied workers being female. Three Handloom Craft Villages  at Kovalam in Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala, Mohpara Village, District Golaghat in Assam and Kanihama, Budgam in Srinagar are being set up by the Ministry in collaboration with the State governments.

The aim behind setting up the craft villages is to provide additional attraction for the domestic and international tourists and promote the well-known Handloom and Handicraft Products of the region. In the 75th year of independence, Prime Minister Narendra Modi urged the people to buy Indian Handloom products and showcase their grandeur.
