Silk and Cotton Handloom and Handicraft Exhibition cum Sale by Kalakruthi.
What is a handloom?
Handloom is a weaving device that is operated by hand with manual labour. Handloom sarees are a traditional textile art of India. The production of handloom sarees are important for economic development in rural India. Completion of a single saree takes two to three days of work. Several regions have their own traditions of handloom sarees.
What are handicrafts?
Handicraft is about processing materials by hand with hand tools. The materials utilized in the product are natural, industrially processed or maybe recycled. The models of the product are ancient, revised, traditional or fashionable. Handicraft is deeply frozen in society and contributes to preserving traditions. In their product, crafters transfer an area of their cultural heritage in ideas, forms, materials and work ways, similarly as their own values, philosophy of life and fashion.
