Today is national handloom day which aims to celebrate our rich heritage and acknowledge the traditional method of weaving. Many celebrities from the different entertainment industry have rocked the saree look and we love them. Proving her love for handloom saree, actress Swastika Mukherjee shared a saree picture on Twitter.
“My skin doesn’t approve of anything else, just #handloom all the way,” she wrote. Swastika is wearing an orange colour handloom saree with her properly done. She is looking very beautiful.
The National Handloom Day is observed annually on 7th August to honour the handloom weavers in the country and also highlight India’s handloom industry. National Handloom Day seeks to focus on the contribution of handloom to the socio economic development of the country and also increase the income of weavers.
The Union Government had declared 7th of August as the National Handloom Day in July 2015 with the objective of generating awareness about the importance of the handloom industry to the socio economic development of the country. August 7 was chosen as the National Handloom Day to commemorate the Swadeshi Movement which was launched on this day in 1905 in Calcutta Town Hall to protest against the partition of Bengal by the British Government. The movement had aimed at reviving domestic products and production processes.
