Invest India, the National Investment Promotion & Facilitation Agency of the Government of India is organizing an exclusive virtual event, in collaboration with Ministry of Textile and North-Eastern Council, Government of India, on the upcoming National Handloom Day, i.e., 7th August 2021, to celebrate and honour the handloom weavers and artisans and to showcase the capabilities of the Handloom sector in India’s North-East Region. We are inviting 20+ Foreign Embassies in India from the Indo-pacific and European regions on this event.

Handloom is an important source of livelihood for many people in the country. This sector has the pride of being the country’s 2nd largest employment generator. The North-East Region has a tradition of handloom that dates back to centuries and forms a vital part of the generational legacy which exemplifies the richness and diversity of our country and the artistry of the weavers. The rich variety of traditional designs and motifs that the looms of the North-East have been producing over the years have poised the region as the biggest contributor to the handloom sector.

With this backdrop, it is our pleasure to invite you to the virtual event to be held on 7th August 2021, at 10:00 a.m. – 12:41 p.m.
