The artisans from various parts of nation gathered here to display their wide range of products. The stalls showcased jute products, carpets, cotton garments, cane furniture, dolls and decorative items. It is estimated that, the craftsmen have earned more than Rs65 lakh from their active participation in the expo.

The hand-woven carpets in interesting designs and colours left onlookers speechless. Cane furniture from Assam was a sudden success among spectators. The bright puppets from Rajasthan became popular with children.

One of the main reasons for holding handicraft exhibition is to help the artisans financially and make regional art and craft famous nation wide.
