The exhibition cum sale has been conceptualised with a view to provide direct marketing platform for innovative products developed by 120 artisans of handicrafts clusters covering different crafts like leather, embroidery, zari and chikankari among other things. About 22 types of crafts are on display with live demonstrations at the fair.
The event is showcasing the best of Indian handicrafts in quality, design and versatility from all over the country. It is organised as an exclusive fair for handicraft products in India at a grand scale to increase visibility of the products in domestic market.
The programme benefits the artisans from clusters who are unable to participate in international fairs due to high costs. The space rental and infrastructure is being provided free of cost to the participants.
The fair is being promoted and marketed by council of handicrafts development corporations (COHANDS), with financial assistance from the office of development commissioner (handicrafts). It will remain open for public till November 15, 2016. (KD)
