Goanese handicrafts go online

Around 350 Goa-based handicrafts are currently exhibited online with 100 on sale, an initiative commenced off late by the Goa Handicrafts Rural and Small Scale Industries Development Corporation (GHRSSIDC), to aid Goa-based artists promote their goods.

Senior member of GHRSSIDC said that, the idea of having an e-portal for Goa-based handicrafts, during their recent visit to expos in USA, California and Greece. An e-portal for exclusively Goa-based handicrafts is definitely a thrill, as the world then has access to products ranging from shells or beads necklaces to terracotta lampshades.

Goa's handicraft exports market is most likely to go beyond Rs 100 billion this year and with the e-portal, they are also in the list of those few handicraft associations who have their self online site to sale their goods.

The portal will give out details such as weight, height and size of the goods on sale, apart from other details of the product. The corporation has photo-documented 500 handicrafts and of these the aforesaid number is exhibited and on sale.

For the time-being goods that can be sold faster have been identified for the online expo. Through this portal consumer can also tailor-make their purchase and the same will then be delivered to the purchaser's given address. Orders have already started pouring in from USA, and more customers will soon be lured towards the portal to buy Goa-based products.

Around all this, the corporation also intends to conduct a Shilpgram, which is an arts and crafts exhibition with a public-private partnership model. According to members of the corporation, the fair will operate as centre for exports.

Visitors visiting this fair will be able to witness the making of a handicraft product, as only then will they know that each product is unique and cannot be duplicated. More importantly, visitors will also realize that handicraft goods are environmentally friendly and not produced with child labour. Goa-based handicraft goods are available on www.ghrssidc.org or www.goanhandicrafts.com.
