An exhibition featuring the latest series of handloom products brought out by National Centre for Textile Design (NCTD), through its offline activity for promotion of these products in domestic and international markets, is now underway at the National Crafts Museum, New Delhi. Textiles Minister Santosh Gangwar inaugurated the exhibition, according to an official statement.

The series called India Handloom: Tradition & Trend, not only reflects the rich tradition and high skill of India's handloom weavers, but also presents a trendy garment segment, besides made-ups, stoles, shawls and home furnishing made of handloom fabrics.

The collection showcased at the exhibition comprises 160 different handloom products in two colourways. Some important products include items like Banarasi saree, Brocade saree, Jamdani saree, Baluchari saree, Kancheepuram saree, Upada Jamdani saree, Venkatgiri, Pochampalli, Patola, Kota Doria, Paithani, Muga, Tussar, Linen, Manipuri textiles, Kani stoles, Kullu stoles, trendy garments for men and women, and home furnishings. The products have been made keeping in mind the demands of both domestic and export markets.

Twenty Weavers' Service Centres across the country have been involved in preparing the designs and transforming them into products with the involvement of skilled weavers, national awardees, Padmashri Awardees and primary co-operative societies. Reputed designers serving as members of the Implementation Committee of NCTD have contributed their expertise in selecting designs for the collection as per market trends. Apart from the thematic collection of products, an attempt has been made to reproduce some samples of the prestigious collection called “Vishwakarma” which was made during late seventies and was appreciated in India and abroad.

A catalogue of the products, giving detailed information of technical and commercial parameters, designers and weavers, is being brought out to facilitate commercial reproduction of these items by various manufacturers, exporters, designers, primary societies and other agencies.

For sale of products carrying the “India Handloom” brand, registered agencies of the brand are participating in the exhibition, with products belonging to a wide range of designs and colours. The “India Handloom” products featured at the exhibition include Kullu shawls, woolen stoles, woolen tweed, Banaras silk Brocade, Banaras Butidar silk saree, Tanchoi silk saree, Chanderi saree and Pochampalli Ikat dress material of different states,. These branded products assure customers of quality, eco-friendliness and fast colours, the statement said. (SH)
