Rajasthan handlooms to be available online soon
Sep '16
Rajasthan State Handloom Development Corporation (RHDC) is exploring opportunities of selling handloom products on online retail stores. To do so, it is in talks with India's biggest ecommerce companies like Amazon, Snapdeal and Flipkart. This initiative is expected to help Rajasthan made handloom products be sold across a wider Indian market.

"We are in discussion with Amazon, Flipkart and Snapdeal, so that the market for Rajasthan handlooms becomes more widespread," media reports quoted RHDC managing director Shuchi Sharma as saying.

Suchi Sharma was speaking on the sidelines of a five-day 'Colours of Rajasthan', an exclusive exhibition of handloom products from Rajasthan being held in Hyderabad.

RHDC currently manages 15 showrooms in Rajasthan and one in Gujarat and is keen to open more outlets outside the state, while also helping the state handloom industry, by providing access to capital, technology and markets. (AR)
