Karnataka opens doors to Himachal handlooms

The State Handicraft and Handloom Corporation, Himachal Pradesh, a state in Northern India, has entered into a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the Karnataka State Handicraft Development Corporation for promotion of Himachal handloom and handicraft items in Karnataka, a state in south-west India.
 
Mr. Lalit Mohan, MD, State Handicraft and Handloom Corporation, Himachal Pradesh and Mr. AK Singh, MD, State Handicraft Development Corporation, Karnataka inked the MoU on behalf of their respective governments, in presence of Himachal Industries Minister Mr. Kishan Kapoor.
 
As per the MoU, Karnataka State Handicraft Development Corporation would allow Himachal Handicraft and Handloom Corporation sell its products in Bengaluru, the capital of Karnataka.
 
Speaking on the occasion, Mr. Kapoor noted that opening of the new sale points would help in promotion and boost sales of Himachal’s traditional handloom and handicraft items. 
 
The annual turnover of Cauvery Emporium, a unit of the Karnataka State Handicraft Development Corporation, which is about Rs. 1.5 million at present, is expected to rise to Rs. 6 million with the launch of the new sale counter of Himachali handicraft items, he added.
 
He further said that the Himachal state government is trying to set up more such sales counters in other parts of the country. Efforts are also being made to launch such a sale counter in Mysore, the second largest city of Karnataka. Showcasing of the local handicrafts through such counters would also attract more tourists to the state, while raising the Corporation’s turnover, he added.
 
Himachal’s handicraft items including its woollen shawls from Kinnaur and Kullu, socks, stoles, mufflers, pullovers, carpets, caps and mufflers are quite popular.
