The Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FICCI) Ladies Organisation (FLO) will work directly with weavers and designers to boost sales of hand-woven, hand-embroidered and hand-crafted products in India and abroad, FLO president Aparna Reddy told a handloom business meeting organised by FLO, FICCI and Facebook in New Delhi recently.
The handloom and handicraft sector has the potential to strengthen livelihoods in a sustainable manner but there is a dearth of information available on the artisans and their linkages with buyers, designers and importers, an Indian news portal quoted Reddy as saying.
FLO has already released a Women Artisans Craft Directory covering 29 states and highlighting the creative dexterity of more than 400 women, she added. (DS)
