JK State Handloom

Jammu and Kashmir, a state with a historically rich culture is spread across a versatile and breath-taking geography. With a multitude of people, different regions and their traditions, the state is the home to numerous commendable arts and crafts. The state’s traditional handloom weaving has, since centuries, developed a name for itself across the world. Apart from designs found specifically in the area, the raw materials are also produced within the state be it pashmina, silk or wool. Traditional handloom weaving has been a major source of employment for a significant part of the state’s workforce. In this spirit, the J&K State Handloom Development Corporation Ltd was incorporated in 1981 exclusively to undertake the promotion of decentralized handloom sector of the state and to implement centrally sponsored handloom projects initiated by the Government of India.
