Profile

Bamboo is highly ductile and it can thus bend into round and curved shapes without breaking. It can also be forced into many shapes when it is growing, for example, growing young shoots through a square tube or curling it into a corkscrew shape, like ‘lucky bamboo’.37725442_1747989851945708_4841731385993461760_n

Bamboo is an exceptionally durable and hardy plant and so it is used for constructing dwellings, furniture, scaffolding, flooring, roofing and many other bamboo projects. Well, a few artifacts in daily use that are crafted from this material are; chairs, stools, bamboo rice steamer, fountains, hats, baskets, mats, and pots, eating utensils, beds, cups, bowls, fishing traps and, carts, musical instruments such as flutes, and toys.37689829_1747989695279057_1560055559267287040_n

Home Textiles Products India

IHGF International Fair Showcases Home Textiles Products India

37182537_1735732739838086_3692923867350695936_nSince Indus valley civilization textiles have been a part of India’s legacy. Dating back to 3000 BC at the time of Sumerian statuettes, Indian handcrafted textiles emerged in the form of cotton saris.

Through the millennium Indian furnishings home textiles have held a special place in India’s heritage, the example is Mahabharat. We find ancient murals in the Ajanta caves that depict the sprouting of textile in India.37418501_1738796789531681_3678454075285831680_n

Birth of flourishing industry in India

Each textile hub in India reveals the story of its craft or the place of its origin. Like, Block printing is a famous style in many states that has originated in the western coast of the country has spread to other states namely West Bengal in the east, Punjab in the North and Andhra Pradesh in the South. Though the craft has its own individual style in each textile hub but upon entering the market, it takes a different name. Block printing is produced by the technique of stamping motifs with dye/ink on the cloth. Today, block printing is the local flavors of Indian furnishings home textiles.37188910_1735732756504751_268419903923421184_n

In Rajasthan, Dabu printing technique uses earth in skillful patterns that is applied on the cloth and the cloth is then dipped in dye. After removing the dried earth, the cloth has white patterns. The cloth masked by earth prevents the ink from blotting. This method is named resist-printing because the mud resists the ink but locally it is called as “Dabu”. Another textile craft naming “Bagru” is from the same region. It is a dexterity in which block prints are stamped on to cloth repeatedly.37282244_1738796692865024_6088412688096952320_n

The districts of Kutch and Mandvi in Gujarat and Shantiniketan in West Bengal, today, are the heartlands of Batik culture in India. Batik style has permeated Indian furnishings home textiles industry and households for its fresh and striking appeal. The fabric is first lined in exquisite wax designs, after which it is swathed in the dye. After drying the wax has cracked, the wonderful patterns that are left behind make for vibrant clothes, wall accents and teapoy covers. The word Batik stems from the Indonesian word “ambatik”, which is loosely translated to ‘wax writing’, and since the craft originated in Indonesia, the name continues to be used in other parts of the world today, including in India.37287453_1738796689531691_6005085194363600896_n

Like Batik, there is another style of printing whose name represents its resplendent history. Ajrakh is a brilliant handloom style that speaks of piercing indigo skies and deep blue darkness and is practiced in Kutch, Gujarat.

A 30% market growth on home textile Products in India

Now, that the export and import of Indian handicrafts manufacturers were well established, the next factor was “cost”.

After the “market” and “cost” being managed, came the “handicraft gift items.”.

Trade Shows Promotes Indian Manufacturers of Gifts32089724_1651223928288968_1375388922070171648_n

When it comes to manufacturing handicrafts and embroidered products, a few countries match up to the Indian artistic acumen, designing abilities and a sense of balance in color and texture. Over the passage of time, the Indian handicrafts industry has taken rapid growth strides, emerging as a major source of revenue for country’s economy. Subsequently, gifts shows like the Delhi Trade Fair 2018 has gone a long way in providing that extra spur in the course of development of the Indian handicrafts exports.

In India, Indian manufacturers of gifts are involved in producing a variety of handicraft products and accessories. Textiles, jewelry items, stone craft, woodwork products and glass items are some of the most popular forms of Indian handicrafts. The ceramic sector in the country is also worth a special mention. With the industry undergoing rapid evolution and growth, handicrafts exports experts need to keep a tab on the latest innovations from this sector. This is precisely where the IHGF DELHI FAIR – AUTUMN (14-18 October 2018) Trade show India and other such trade events come to their aid.

Home textiles products India, brass handicrafts products and bamboo handicrafts products are highly popular in the global markets. Each year, a major chunk of the total handicraft production is exported to foreign countries, with USA and UK being two of the major buyers of Indian handicraft products. The labor-intensive nature of this sector also suits the Indian economy, with manpower being in abundant supply in the country, and that too, at relatively cheap rates. A thorough insight into the various opportunities that are available in the Indian handicrafts manufacturers sector can be obtained by visiting the 16th GLOBAL INDIAN FESTIVAL 2018 in MALAYSIA (9-17 June 2018), where attendees have the scope of interacting with industry professionals too.

The journey of the Indian handicrafts industry has, however, not been a uniformly smooth one. Till a few years back, the sector received minimal support from the Government, while there was a dearth of skilled and qualified artisans too. The unavailability of sophisticated machine tools also acted as a major deterrent. The story of the Indian handicrafts sector of overcoming such hurdles to become an industry of worth more than USD 1.2 billion is remarkable indeed. The hard work and perseverance of artisans, coupled with continuous upgradation in technology have been the chief causes of the success of the industry. A glimpse of the modern handicraft machinery can be had at the Trade Fair Delhi 2011.

Locations like Moradabad, Ferozabad, Sanganer, Bagru and Narsapur have become famous for the specialized handicraft products that are available here. With more and more varieties of Indian brass handicrafts coming up in the field of brass handicrafts products, bamboo handicrafts products, a healthy competition among several handicraft production centers has emerged, driving up manufacturing efficiency levels. With high levels of domestic as well as international demand, the Indian handicrafts industry seems poised for greater heights in future.
