Handloom sector is a symbol of our country’s rich and varied cultural heritage.

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.
