National Handloom Day Celebration on 7th August 2022

Ministry of Textiles is oganising the 8th National Handloom Day on 7 August 2022. The 7th August was chosen as National Handloom Day to commemorate the Swadeshi Movement which was launched on this day in 1905. The National Handloom Day is observed annually to honour our handloom weavers and provide impetus to the handloom industry. 

2. Handloom is a symbol of our glorious cultural heritage and an important source of livelihood in the country. This is one of the key sectors for women’s empowerment, as over 70% of all handloom weavers and allied workers are women. 

3. It has to be our collective efforts to support Indian handloom weavers by purchasing handloom products and sharing it. The more world knows about the richness and diversity of handloom products, the greater our local weavers will be benefitted.
