The expo which begun today was inaugurated by Maongwati Aier, Deputy Commissioner, Dimapur and will continue to pull visitors at the Dimapur Club ground till September 22. The purpose of this extensive fair is to make mesmerizing craft of North east region popular in other regions.

Wide range of handloom products that are beautifully woven by the artisans have gained popularity far and wide. The interestingly weaved shawls, rugs and wall hangings that are made using bright colours are the trademark of Nagas. Even the handicraft items created using cane and bamboo have appreciators. Beaded jewellery in amazing designs and combinations is expected to witness huge sales.

The experts believe that more people should be motivated to join this industry in order to keep it alive. Experiment with patterns and techniques should be done to make it popular within the country. Naga handloom and handicraft has a huge demand in South East Asia.

Industry insiders suggest that new markets should be explored and marketing networks should be build for improving sales of these colourful and vibrant products.
