SUBJECT: INVITATION FOR VIRTUAL PANEL DISCUSSION ON "SOURCING FROM HANDLOOM CLUSTERS OF INDIA" ON 7TH AUGUST 2020 AT 05.00 PM ON NATIONAL HANDLOOM DAY 

 

Dear Sir/Madam, 

 

As you may be aware that Ministry of Textiles, Govt. of India is celebrating “The National Handloom Day” on 07th August, 2020 to commemorate the Swadeshi Movement which was launched on this day in 1905. The main objective is to generate awareness about the importance of handloom at large and its contribution to the socio-economic development of the country in general and to promote handlooms, increase income of weavers and enhance their pride in particular. 

 

Hon’ble Prime Minister has urged that it should be an endeavor on part of all of us to use Indian Handloom and Handicrafts and also communicate to more and more people about them. The more the world knows about the richness and diversity of these products, the greater our local weavers and artisans will benefit. Hon’ble Prime Minister has exhorted to launch a social media campaign urging the citizenry and the world at large to embrace Indian handlooms. This campaign has to be made viral and top trending on social media through the collective efforts of every part of the Government, various stake-holders and the public. 

 

In line with the Hon’ble Prime Minister’s vision of Atma Nirbhar Bharat”, “Vocal for Local”, a social media campaign has been launched today on the occasion of National Handloom Day. It has to be our collective endeavor to ensure that the message to embrace Indian Handlooms reaches far and wide. 

 

Hashtag for Handloom Social Media Campaign 

#Vocal4Handmade 

 

Our endeavor would be to connect the Weavers with the Buyers and I urge you to use all your resources towards this effort to make this event effective and successful to fulfill the dreams of the Government towards this aspect. 

 

On the occasion of The National Handloom Day, EPCH is organizing a Panel discussion in association with Carpet Export Promotion Council (CEPC) and Buying Agents Association (BAA) on "Sourcing from Handloom Clusters of India" today on 07th August, 2020 (Friday) at 5.00 PM.
