The objective of the event is to celebrate and honour the Indian handloom weavers and artisans and to showcase the capabilities of India's Handloom sector in the North East Region. Handloom sector has the pride of being India’s 2nd largest employment generator, and 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 the 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.
