In an initiative to bolster handicraft industry of Himachal Pradesh, the state government has launched an e-shopping portal, which will facilitate the customers to shop from home. The website has more than 1,000 products on display ranging from hand-knitted woollens like shawls, stoles, mufflers, socks, gloves, pullovers and caps, to Kangra paintings and Chamba rumal (handkerchief) to Chamba chappals (slippers) and jewellery items

 

Government statistics show that the demand for handicrafts and artefacts made in the hill state has been on the rise. Industry Minister Kishan Kapoor said, “In fact, Himachali handicrafts are quite popular among foreigners. Now, this will help them buy the products easily.”
