On the eve of National Handloom Day, we would like to honour and feel pride of our rich handloom culture. India, as we know is a very rich country and especially when it comes to handicrafts, weaving and a plethora of handlooms. Our country is so rich that each state has atleast one popular and specialised handloom of its own.
Whereas the handlooms and crafted materials we use at today are mostly crafted with modern technology, and because of that our traditional culture have seen a succumbing decrease. At this day, you should start looking out for authentic handcrafted handlooms which will not only help the art and crafts to grow but also they look far more authentic.
So, here is a cheers to Kashmir to Kanyakumari for all their contribution in giving us such beautiful and meaningful crafts. Here are the popular handlooms in each state of India:
1. Assam – Muga Silk
