Srinagar: Interaction with Women Sozni Artisans from the district of Ganderbal was organised by the Handicrafts and Handloom Department (H&H) in cooperation with PHDCCI Kashmir.

According to the statement, Mehmood Ahmad Shah, Director of Handicrafts and Handloom Kashmir, stated that the empowerment of women artisans has the potential to not only equalise pay and meet the standards of fair trade but can also pave the way for greater poverty.

More than 50 Sozni Hand Embroidery artisans from different communities and craft hubs in the Ganderbal district attended the seminar.
