Handicrafts-a name by which India is known are the part of the rich tradition of Himachal Pradesh. A mean to earn livelihood for people residing in villages where industrialisation hasn’t yet caught up, the tradition faces the danger of extinction.
Shawls, Chamba Chappals, Kulvi topii and many such handicrafts have been a part of lifestyle of Himachali people. In an effort to gain a better market on the global front after pushing their demand throughout the years, artisans of Himachal Pradesh have finally been provided space to market and sell their products at the Delhi-Haat by the Handloom and Extension Service Centre and the Handicrafts and Development Commission.
The rural artisans would need to send their applications, however, applications only from the artisans registered with the handloom and handicrafts office would be entertained, reported Fibre2Fashion. Moreover, the artisans mustn’t have vended their goods at the Haat in the preceding six months.
