Throughout the day, the buyers and sellers had a close interaction and they were very happy to get a first hand view from weavers and the weavers in turn also expressed their satisfaction over the amount orders they received.

Amongst the buyers were Mr AK Singh of Ethnic Village, Canada, Mr Bhagwan Jaswani, SkyTex, Dubai and Mr Barkat from Bangladesh who were astonished with the range and richness of Bihar handlooms.
