Arunachal Pradesh traditionally known for its mesmerizing landscape is also home to a rich textile and handicraft industry. And because the state houses more than 20 major tribes and 100 sub-tribes, it is known for its diverse range of handloom and handicrafts, which are a reflection of the region's rich cultural heritage and traditional practices.

Handloom & Weaving: The handloom weaving industry is a significant source of employment in Arunachal Pradesh. The state is renowned for the excellent handmade textiles crafted by skilled weavers. The different tribes of Arunachal Pradesh weave using a variety of methods and designs to produce a wide range of textiles. Every tribe in the state has a distinctive weaving technique that is passed down from generation to generation. Each piece is distinctive and a testament to the weavers' abilities owing to the elaborate designs and patterns used in the weaving procedures.

The handloom weaving industry has enormous potential in Arunachal Pradesh, and many organizations and government bodies are working towards preserving and promoting this traditional craft. The state government has established a Handloom and Handicrafts Development Corporation to provide financial assistance, training, and marketing support to the weavers. The corporation also provides raw materials, looms, and other equipment to the weavers to create quality products.

Each tribe in the state has its unique craftsmanship, creating beautiful products that showcase their traditional practices and cultural heritage.

Marketing and Export Opportunities:

Arunachal Pradesh's textile and handicraft industry has great potential to grow and expand. The state government has taken many initiatives to market and promote these crafts, particularly at the national and international levels, after realizing their full potential. The government has established several emporiums that sell these products and also participates in various trade fairs and exhibitions to showcase these crafts.

Furthermore, several NGOs and private organizations are working to create long-term employment opportunities for local artisans. These organizations train and empower artisans to produce high-quality goods while also assisting them in gaining access to markets.

we can promote and market these local crafts to increase their reach and visibility by making our Indian Market accessible to the people of Arunachal Pradesh throughout the year by connecting it with All Weather Roads & other transport facilities. Handicraft & MSME sector should get subsidy & financial upgradation by the govts. Export of these goods should be ensured.
