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.

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".
