PM Narendra Modi inaugurated the first National Handloom Day at the University of Madras’ Centenary Hall in Chennai, on 7 August 2015. The observation of the day on August 7 was selected to commemorate the Swadeshi Movement that was launched in Calcutta Town Hall on this day in 1905 to protest against the British Government’s partition of Bengal. The movement was aimed to revive the production processes and domestic goods. 

Handlooms are environmentally friendly, and a viable way to make a living. The handloom sector provides 4.33 million people with jobs and is the second-largest source of employment in rural India. Around 95% of the world’s handwoven fabric comes from India.
