Handloom sector is a symbol of India’s rich and varied cultural heritage.

Handloom is an important source of livelihood in rural and semi-rural parts of​ India. It is a sector that directly addresses women’s empowerment with over 70% of all weavers and allied workers being female.

Rooted in nature, it has eco-friendly production processes with minimal requirement of capital and power, and provides inherent flexibility to innovate to meet changes in fashion trends and fast-changing customer preferences.

Swadeshi Movement which was launched on 7th August, 1905 had encouraged indigenous industries and in particular handloom weavers.

In 2015, the Government of India decided to designate the 7th​ August every year, as the National Handloom Day.

The first National Handloom Day was inaugurated on 7 August 2015 by Prime Minister Narendra Modi in Chennai.
