During media interaction, National Handloom Expo, Director Sudhir Chandra Nautiyal gave detailed information about the National Handloom Expo stating that for the handloom weavers it has become a challenge to continue this as a profession. Limited number of societies uplifts their own craftsmen and workers in order to sell their products in the market. Hence, this exhibition is a great platform to nurture their sales in order to benefit them with good prices.
This indirectly benefits the consumers in order to get good quality handmade products at reasonable prices which are comparatively lesser than the ordinary markets that consist of machine outputs. Many women have claimed that the kind of clothes they buy from branded shops are available at this exhibition at very reasonable prices without compromising with the quality of the product. He further added that the feedback is welcomed so that any loopholes in the exhibition are avoided and the suggestions can be incorporated in their products. People will definitely receive authentic material as they are not only durable but also long lasting in nature.
