National Handloom Day is observed annually on August 7th to honour the handloom weavers and their significant role in the country's economy and culture.

This occasion highlights the significance of the handloom industry in our past and provides more power to those who are employed in it. 

As most of the weavers in this field are women, this day presents a crucial opportunity to express our appreciation and support towards them. 

The theme designated for National Handloom Day in 2023 is "Handlooms for Sustainable Fashion". 

This theme emphasises the significance of handloom weaving as an environmentally friendly and sustainable substitute for machine-made fabrics. 

The origins of National Handloom Day can be traced back to the Swadeshi Movement of 1905.
