Jharkhand Silk Textile and Handicraft Development Corporation (Jharcraft) exhibiting its products at the India Trend Fair in Japan is getting positive response. The three-day fair organised by the Handloom Export Council of India along with Japan India Industry Promotion Association (JIIPA) was inaugurated by the Indian ambassador in Japan, Deepa Gopalan Wadhwa .
Jharcraft is showcasing a line of apparels like bandi , kurta and stoles. The organisation, however, plans to export only fabric including organic tussar and mulberry silk. It is looking forward to getting a lot of orders from the international garment manufacturers. The idea behind participating was to understand the requirements of Japanese market players so that the fabrics can be supplied according to the needs of the global market. In April this year, Jharcraft was also a part of Hannover Messe 2015 in Germany where they received queries from over 20 international companies, mostly from Germany and Russia at their stall.
Jharcraft was also invited in September to participate in an expo to be organised in November this year at Ivory Coast, West Africa when mayor of Ivory Coast Ndri Koffi Germain and Chief Justice Ali Yeo visited the Kuchai Silk Expo organized by Jharcraft in Ranchi.
