Meta: Gifts & Decoratives contribute largely to the export list of India as there is a huge demand for them in the global market for their uniqueness and quality.
As Einstein quoted “The important things are always simple”, it is human nature to get attracted to simple things and gift article manufacturers in India have made this their motto. Imagine yourself in a gift shop looking for an item to gift your special one. The shop may be a vast one with numerous collections or a small one with selective collections. Your eyes will always focus on items that are small and artistic as you want your gift to be often cute rather than being embellished.
Let us have a look at some of the other factors that make gift articles from India more special:
India is a Land of Celebration
Indians are known for celebrations. The country has people of different religious beliefs living together and there will be at least two celebratory events in a month. When a country has more number of celebratory events, automatically the reputation of gift articles produced will be higher as creating and selling the same type of gifts will throw the manufacturer away from the market.
Handcrafted Gift Articles
When a particular item’s export rate is higher for a country, it means that the country excels in meeting the demands of the consumers in style. One such most demanded item in the global market is Handcrafted gift articles from India. Indians are highly skilful in creating beautiful handcrafted articles from clay, paper, copper, brass, and porcelain which are loved by people all around the world.
Paintings and Jewellery
Many foreigners touring India make space in their bags for paintings and handcrafted jewellery while returning back to their homeland. India has a long standing history for paintings and has produced some of the greatest painting works ever. The art is still being mastered by many aspiring painters whose works are sought by many to gift their special ones. When it comes to handcrafted jewellery, India stands tall in the global market as the pieces are state of the art and highly creative.
Like painting sculpting is also an oldest art form mastered by the Indians. India is known for its idol worshiping practice and many foreigners who love the culture of India are interested in idol worshiping as well. The country produces some of the best miniature statues of gods out of different metals which are loved by many. Miniature statues of gods and goddesses are not only meant for those who worship them. They are also preferred by people who see them only as an artwork.
Export Promotion Council for Handicrafts
EPCH is a non-profit organisation that helps manufacturers of handicrafts, gifts & decorative, housewares, and furniture showcase their products on the global market. The organisation has played a major role in expanding the market for Indian products through exhibitions and fairs. If you are looking to buy any such product or showcase your own product you can visit their next big event in New Delhi in February 2019, The Spring Fair 2019 which will prove to be useful for both buyers as well as sellers.
