Even though a great deal of effort is being done to sustain the rich Indian heritage and culture; much more remains to be done. And while Indian handlooms are being celebrated and adopted the world over, the weavers in our country are in a pitiable state.

With the next generation bidding adieu to weaving as a livelihood option – beautiful, hand woven sarees are going to be relics of the past.

Several government and private entities are coming up with their own versions of hand-woven or handloom fabrics giving it a modern makeover to make it appealing to the present generation. Some are into manufacturing and selling these fabrics to newer market while others adopt innovative strategies to promote the ethnicity and the many facets of culturally rich India.

The plus point of this festival for many vendors is that they get a free space to sell their products.A vendor at the Punjab stall, who has come from Dilli Haat to sell phulkari work, loves the environment at the mall. He says, “I hope such festivals are held more often. The customers here don’t bargain, which is very refreshing, and we are being provided with all the facilities to make things easier.”Talking about the sale of camel leather bags, a vendor from Rajasthan stall exclaimed, “This is my first time of displaying my products in a mall. We are getting customers who understand the craft and there is a great demand. Because the event is promoting handicrafts, it is exciting to see people to come and see the collection.”As DLF Place Saket is trying to promote ethnic wear and the various fabrics of India – the premium brands in the clothing industry have also participated. While Ritu Kumar is offering three brands under one roof for its customers in DLF Place Saket, Anita Dongre – with the motive of promoting cottage industries – offers the best of Banaras silk, mal fabric, Khadi and hand-woven designer pieces.
