Today, August 7, 2020 marks as 6th National Handloom Day which is celebrated to commemorate the Swadeshi Movement launched in 1905. It also honors the efforts of Indian weavers and artisans and put the nation’s handloom sector in the spotlight. To support the nation’s textile legacy and acknowledge artisan’s labour of love, film and fashion fraternity came together to pay an ode to this day by being ‘Vocal 4 Handloom’

Celebrating the 6th National Handloom Day wearing one of my favourite handloom pieces. Handloom has been a part of my design journey ever since my first collection back in 2009 & continues to find itself in most of my creations. Thrilled to be celebrating this day with the Ministry of textiles #Vocal4Handmade @smritiiraniofficial @fdciofficial #textileministryofindia #handloom #masabaxekaya
Our weavers need all our support and love! This #NationalHandloomDay let’s celebrate the rich legacy of our Indian weaves and textiles. I am proud of this rich heritage of India and of our weavers who have kept our traditions alive. There is nothing like a handloom saree #NationalHandloomDay2020 #VocalForLocal Saree @studio_medium Jewellery @mirakinofficial Styled by @theiatekchandaney
Our country is a treasure trove of crafts & artisans who continue to reinvent handloom while keeping the core values of our heritage alive. If we all decide to each buy one article from a weaver/artisan, then imagine what the collective power of 1.3 Billion Indians can achieve. Together we can make a huge difference. This #NationalHandloomDay lets get together & help our handlooms thrive! #Vocal4Handmade @smritiiraniofficial I take pride in celebrating India's legacy, I'm #Vocal4Handmade. Are you?
