The Indian government moved ahead with its plans to enable the handicrafts industry to effectively harness e-commerce for exports.


It announced mass enrolment of artisans across India for handicraft promotion using its resources.


The handicrafts sector is important for the Indian economy as it is one of the largest employment generators and accounts for a significant share in the country’s exports.


The Indian handicrafts industry is fragmented, with more than seven million regional artisans and more than 67,000 exporters/export houses.


Handicraft exports from India increased by 1.65 per cent year-on-year between Apr-Nov 2018 to US$ 2.42 billion.


Main handicraft items exported by India include house-ware, home textiles, furniture, glassware, bamboo goods, fashion jewellery and lamp and lighting.
