National Handloom Day 2022: Quotes and messages to share on National Handloom Day this year

Latest News

National Handloom Day 2022: Every year on August 7, we celebrate National Handloom Day. A formal proclamation to utilise exclusively Swadeshi items and to boycott foreign goods was made on August 7, 1905, at the Calcutta Town Hall. The Swadeshi Movement, as it was known, was started to oppose the British government's partition of Bengal.

In India, National Handloom Day is observed annually on August 7 to promote wearing clothing manufactured by hand by indigenous tribes. Events are planned all around the country this year to increase public understanding and the contribution of citizens to the socioeconomic development of handloom weavers.

There are a large number of Indian handlooms on the market, and they can be recognised by one another by their weaving skills, their use of images and patterns, and their colour. There are numerous Indian handloom options, including Bandhani from Gujarat, Kunbi from Goa, Muga Silk from Assam, and Mysore Silk from Karnataka.
