Craft fair sees colossal response

23
Feb '10
The 8th Handicraft Fair and 6th Craft Competition witnessed increased number of visitors on each of the days of the fair. Items including shawls, purses, shoes, jewelry, paintings and other handicraft items were the high-lights of the fair and saw immense response from visitors.

Stall owners at the fair had a satisfactory business with better demands for their products. On the other hand, buyers also had an opportunity to get Nepali handmade products at cheaper rates compared to prevalent market prices.

Apart from products for sale, many craft items were also there in the fair which were only on display, which curtailed purchasers from buying whole range of products available in the fair. Many of the stalls were set up only for marketing and contact purposes.

Showcasing variety of wood crafts, stone carvings, Pashmina products as well as handloom items, this fair was a medium to boost the participants to gear themselves up for international participation.

Moreover, live demonstrations by craftsmen, culture and musical programs and seminars were also the part of this event, wherein most of the traditional crafts on display were created on religious, cultural and traditional values and methods. The contemporary handicraft products in the fair contained indigenous eco-friendly raw materials.
