National Handloom Day celebration
A nation like India which is so rich and diverse in textiles and weaves – unique to each city and village and for a nation that commemorates every event, the introduction of National Handloom Day is very much appreciated. It was launched on 7th August 2015.This day was chosen, as the Swadeshi Movement started in 1905 on this day. The Swadeshi Movement celebrated our indigenous fabrics, weavers and artisans. In keeping with this, every year artisans and weavers are presented with ‘Sant Kabir’ awards to promote their works.
National Handloom Day was celebrated at ARCH on 7th August 2018.
