Buyers from 110 nations are in India to source home, lifestyle, fashion, furniture and textiles products from around 3,200 Indian exhibitors at the 48th edition of the Indian Handicrafts and Gifts Fair (IHGF) at the India Expo Centre & Mart in Uttar Pradesh’s Greater Noida. Indian textiles secretary Ravi Capoor inaugurated the five-day fair yesterday.

Capoor said the country’s handicrafts industry has the potential to raise exports in that sector to₹ 100,000 crore from ₹26,590 crore now, according to an official release.

He urged the Export Promotion Council for Handicrafts (EPCH) to explore the possibility of opening handicraft parks in the country and develop those as tourism and crafts centres.

He also directed EPCH to include new segments in the IHGF-Delhi Fair for women entrepreneurs and new artisans and also ensure that the handicraft industry works on a sustainable model where the entire production process will function as a zero-waste manufacturing sector.
