Throughout the day, the buyers and sellers had a close interaction and they were very happy to get a first hand view from weavers and the weavers in turn also expressed their satisfaction over the amount orders they received.

Amongst the buyers were Mr AK Singh of Ethnic Village, Canada, Mr Bhagwan Jaswani, SkyTex, Dubai and Mr Barkat from Bangladesh who were astonished with the range and richness of Bihar handlooms.

IL&FS CDI Limited, the Project Managers of the event helped arrange a visit to the Bihar-e-Sharif handloom cluster on the second day, so that the buyers could have a first hand look at the manufacturing process of the textile products from there.

According to Mr Viren Mehta, Head, Marketing at Fibre2fashion, “This is the first of physical interventions from Fibre2fashion.com which has always remained dominant in the virtual space and we are enthused with buyers who have shown great interest in the handloom and silk products on display here".

He enthusiastically added by saying that we are expecting good number of orders to be placed by them before the final day that is August 10.

The Dubai based buyer, Mr Bhagwan Jaswani, said he was very impressed by the workmanship of Bihar handloom products and was hoping to place a large order after consulting with his company's quality control division.
