National Handloom Day celebrated with pomp and patriotism at U.P. Design and Research Organization

Lucknow: On the occasion of National Handloom Day, this year the U.P. Design and Research Oganization was witness to the inauguration of a Sant Kabir Das statue in the honourable presence of Minister A.K. Sharma. It also saw a mini celebration of the 75th year of India’s Independence. Those present held high the tricolour to show their patriotic best.

It is notable that the Ministry of Textiles is hosting the 8th National Handloom Day on August 7, in honour of the handloom industry and its weavers.

In 2015, the Union government had declared August 7 as National Handloom Day to commemorate the Swadeshi Andolan that began in 1905 on the same day.

Last year’s national celebration took place at Dilli Haat, New Delhi with a national-level handloom expo organized by the textile ministry.
