Aug '17
Amazon India has signed an agreement with the Telangana department of handloom and textiles to educate and train weavers and artisans to directly sell their products to the firm’s customers online. This will boost sale of popular handloom products from Pochampally, Warangal, Gadwal, Narayanpet and Siddipet, the company said in a recent statement.

The training programmes will include computer and internet training, registration assistance sessions and methods to make the products more attractive, appealing and marketable across the online domain. Telangana has over 17,000 handlooms.

The partnership also intends to empower and generate livelihood opportunities and income for the artisans and transform their economy, according to Amazon. (DS)
