Dilli Haat: Platform for South Asian crafts-women

Jan '10
The annual craft fair organized by the Dastkari Samiti at Dilli Haat in New Delhi witnessed the participation of 'All Women' organizations from eight SAARC countries, including, Afghanistan, Bhutan, Pakistan and Sri Lanka.

Myriad variety of hand-crafted products from cane furniture to jewelry, as well as handloom items produced by South Asian women were the limelight of this craft fair.

As per Mr. Jaya Jaitley, the pioneer behind the concept of Dilli Haat, this time the products exhibited in the fair were particularly from the groups employing women artists, in a bid to promote the creativity and self-esteem of women.

It is a dedication of all those organizations, which brings these women together and fight for their rights as, women workers share major part of handicraft industry but are remunerated unjustly, she added.

Women from various organizations of different countries displayed wide array of products they manufactured, for instance, Pakistani group 'Asasah' brought country's exotic hand embroidery work, the Federation of Women Entrepreneurs Association of Nepal showcased its paper craft made from a particular bush called Lokta, found only in the Himalayan belt.
The handicraft association of Bhutan exhibited country's traditional weaving pattern, Rajju. Puppet shows, magic shows, Qawalli, Dandiya and Chhau dance were also the part of fair that concluded on January 7.
