Weavers will get the right value and visibility in men’s fashion garments market for their quality fabrics through this partnership with Peter England and their direct sales channel,” while adding that the Ministry of Textiles, India wants to ensure that not only quality products are given to the citizens worldwide, but also certify that the benefit of those procurement will go directly to the weavers.

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.
