FLO to team up with Indian woman weavers to boost handloom
The Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FICCI) Ladies Organisation (FLO) will work directly with weavers and designers to boost sales of hand-woven, hand-embroidered and hand-crafted products in India and abroad, FLO president Aparna Reddy told a handloom business meeting organised by FLO, FICCI and Facebook in New Delhi recently.

The handloom and handicraft sector has the potential to strengthen livelihoods in a sustainable manner but there is a dearth of information available on the artisans and their linkages with buyers, designers and importers, an Indian news portal quoted Reddy as saying.

FLO has already released a Women Artisans Craft Directory covering 29 states and highlighting the creative dexterity of more than 400 women, she added. (DS)
