For a land as rich in textiles and weaves – unique to each town, you travel through even in a state – and for a country that commemorates every event, the introduction of National Handloom Day was much-awaited. Launched in 2015, August 7 was chosen as National Handloom Day as it was the day that the Swadeshi Movement was started in 1905. The Swadeshi Movement celebrated our indigenous fabrics, weavers and the country’s artisans. In keeping with this, every year artisans and weavers are presented with ‘Sant Kabir’ awards to promote their handiwork and Indian crafts.

Symbols of Identity

Handlooms aren’t just important for aesthetic and cultural reasons, they’re also integral to political and diplomatic engagements, as they are symbols of a nation’s identity, culture and inclusive development. For instance, Indira Gandhi was known to possess an exquisite, yet simple collection of weaves and shawls. When seen as instruments of soft diplomacy; handlooms and crafts empower cottage industries and showcase the multiple identities present in a country.
