Looking ahead to boost domestic production and demand for handicraft items in the world market, the Federation of Handicraft Association of Nepal (FHAN) will be organising a Handicraft Trade Fair in accordance with the Nepal Trade Integration Strategy (NTIS) programme under the Ministry of Commerce and Supplies.

The theme for the ninth Handicraft Trade Fair to be held from November 24 to 28 this year in Kathmandu is 'Craft Created Locally: Marketed Globally.' The NTIS programme has sanctioned a sum of NPR six million for the purpose.

The fair would showcase a whole range of products made from Pashmina, linen, cotton, handmade fashion items, natural fibre products and leather items.

There would be 175 stalls at the fair showcasing different items prepared by members of the Nepal Pashmina Industries Association, Felt Industries Association of Nepal, Lalitpur Association of Leather Shoes and product development Association Nepal, and others.

About 50 stalls at the fair will feature products from the home country. Entrepreneurs from other SAARC nations like India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh are also set to participate in the fair.

The second Handicraft Fashion Show, seminars/contests, Pavilion contest, seventh Crafts Competition and live demonstrations would be the main highlights of the fair.

The second Handicraft Fashion Show, to be held on November 22, would showcase a series of exportable handicraft items of around 14 handicraft entrepreneurs.

Handicraft sector serves as a source of direct employment for over 1.1 million people in Nepal, which each year ships around three million worth of handicraft items to India and other third world countries.
