This may be "Exhibition year" for me. So far I have visited 6 Exhibitions this year ! (Those Exhibitions were - Mahalaxmi Saras 2015, Kala Ghoda Art Festival, Weaves Exhibition, Garvi Gujrat Exhibition, Grahak peth and last but definitely not the least - National Handloom Expo 2015).
National Handloom Expo 2015 held at Mumbai was organised by Maharashtra State Handlooms Corporation. (Source of Information). Sponsored by the ministry's development commissioner for handlooms and co-sponsored by the state textiles department, the event, the largest of its kind, provided a platform to poor handloom weavers to market their products, and helped to disseminate knowledge about contemporary designs and trends among weavers and others. Artisans from 16 states, including UP, Bihar, Haryana, Rajasthan, West Bengal, Orissa, Maharashtra, MP, Andhra, Karnataka, and Puducherry displayed their ware at the exhibition. A beautiful theme pavilion by Weavers Service Center was set up to educate visitors about the aspects of handlooms.
