Role of Handicrafts and Handlooms for generating income and employment cannot be overemphasized, says President

New Delhi: November 9,2012

The President of India, Shri Pranab Mukherjee called for constant endeavours to get handlooms and handicrafts access to markets within India and abroad to fully harness the inherent potential of our artisans and weavers. He was speaking on the occasion of presentation of National Awards, Shilp Guru Awards and Sant Kabir Awards today (November 9, 2012).

The President described handlooms as a precious part of national legacy and said that this rich heritage has been kept alive by those professionally skilled weaver households that are linked with the age-old tradition of weaving. Every part of India, every province, district and almost every single village has a cherished craft tradition of its own, he said.

On the occasion, the President congratulated all the awardees present for their contribution in preserving, promoting and enriching the traditional and cultural heritage of our country. He added that he was confident that the recognition for their workmanship should inspire and encourage others to work hard and emulate their efforts to bring prosperity to artisans and weavers across the country.

Union Minister for Textiles and Commerce, Shri Anand Sharma was also present on the occasion.
