SILCHAR, Feb 13: In a positive move, the Karimganj district administration has ensured that possibilities are bright for export of handloom items produced by the Weaving Societies and self help groups (SHGs) in the district.

“The handloom products of the district have excellent quality and can be considered for sale via e-commerce platforms,” Deputy Commissioner Anbamuthan MP said after inaugurating the five-day district level exhibition-cum-sale of handloom products at the Town Kalibari field on Friday.

Anbamuthan MP took stock of the exhibits displayed in 15 stalls at the exposition. Besides informing about the steps to be taken for exporting handloom items so that the market reach increases, the deputy commissioner suggested that the standard and the quality of handloom products should be improved for better prospects.

Mihir Debnath, a member of the board of governor of the Karimganj District Handloom Weavers Cooperative Society Limited, informed that out of the 84 weaving societies, 10 societies along with five SHGs have taken part in the exposition.
