Adding to that Alok Kumar, Development Commissioner – Handlooms, Ministry of Textiles commented, “Ministry of Textiles had done research about marketing of India Handloom Brand products. One of the major findings was that the product range has a very big gap for branded men’s formals. And hence the collaboration with Peter England, Indian formal menswear brand.”

The Indian Handloom Brand was launched by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on 7th August 2016 in order to promote the branding of high quality handloom products with zero defect and zero impact on the environment.
