Backing the need for use of handloom accessories for future fashion events, Mrs. India International Richa Sharma said the designs and patterns visualized by Indian weavers will always remain to be the best.

Skilfulness and colour combinations of works of Indian weavers showcasing their works at textile shows, karigar haats or even in their states, including in Bengal, always amazes her, Richa told PTI, Business Standard reported.
Pointing at the amazing collection of saris, kurtis, lahengas, chikan wear, and suits prepared by Indian artisans, Mrs. Sharma said she fails to understand why an increasing number of fashion designers are not utilizing Indian weavers who have that skill to set the stage ablaze, so as to reinstate India as a fashion hub.
Praising the country’s contemporary tradition, she said increased awareness amongst people regarding handloom items, and jute products in particular, would prove to be of great help for the handloom artists.
