Handloom expo underway
 

GUWAHATI, March 20: Handloom, Textiles and Sericulture Commissioner-Secretary Mukti Gogoi today inaugurated the Silk Fab exhibition at Ulubari in the city. Speaking on the occasion, Gogoi said the exhibition will enable an interface between weavers and consumers, a press release said.  

Silk Fab exhibition is an initiative of the Union Ministry of Textiles through National Handloom Development Corporation (NHDC) to provide direct access to the handloom weavers to market their products to consumers in various cities. The participants are from various State Government bodies/apex societies, primarily handloom weavers’ societies and handloom agencies. Of them, 35 agencies are from 12 states.

The Central Government has launched the ‘Handloom Mark’ scheme for handloom products to encourage and give a distinct identity to the products, apart from

highlighting their uniqueness. It also serves a guarantee for buyers that the products being purchased are genuinely hand-woven. All exhibitors at the Silk Fab have been encouraged to display ‘handloom mark’ tag on their products so as to improve their earnings.

The exhibition will remain open for visitors from 11 am to 8 pm till April 2, 2017.
