India handloom must be given a Brand name. It must be made international. It can have products in different segments like luxury, premium, office wear (men n women), party wear, function wear, daily wear, sports wear etc. It must be made to appeal to youth who will be the biggest consumers. It must have good quality comparable to top brands to gain trust and market. Need to position it as better than Chinese or MiddleEast fabrics.

More & more manufacturing units must be initiated in each & every corner of the nation. Village people should come forward. Banks & financial institutes must be ordered by the govt. to provide financial assistance to the people in order to start handloom business & expand that to export business.

India can be a manufacturing country in this sector. It's the best industry where more & more people living in rural areas can get engaged and be economically strong enough.
