Nagaland government is promoting the State's handloom sector by hosting exhibitions that enable rural weavers a wider market reach.

Recently, a handloom expo was held in Dimapur, which was jointly organized by the Union Ministry of Textiles and the Development Commissioner of Handlooms, Dimapur.

Dimapur is the main commercial hub and one of the three municipalities in the State of Nagaland.

More than 40 stalls at the expo attracted a large number of visitors and provided a platform for the State's rural weavers and artisans to sell their products to them.

Handloom fairs and exhibitions not only helps the rural weavers to sell their products but also helps them get a feel of the market trend and customer demands, according to Hokiye Yeputhomi, Manager Director and Organizer of the Dimapur fair.

The handloom and handicrafts sector is a source of livelihood for over 200,000 families in Nagaland. The hand-woven and handmade items have demand both within and outside the country and are an important contributor to the State's economy.
