Chamber of Commerce and Industry Kashmir (CCIK) has hailed the efforts of Directorate of Handicrafts and Handloom in getting the GI tags to most of the Kashmir handicraft products.

In a statement, CCIK President Tariq Rashid Ghani said the GI tags to the indigenous Hlhandicrafts products will save Kashmir’s unique art and craft and promote artisans.

Ghani appreciated the efforts of Director Handicrafts and Handloom Mahmood Shah for taking painstaking efforts in ensuring the age old craft gets world recognition and is saved from fictious products.

CCIK said many fraudulent traders were selling and passing imported carpets and shawls as hand knotted Kashmiri products bringing bad image to the Kashmir’s craft and artisans.

“The GI tags to carpets and other handicraft products is a big shot for the Kashmiri artisans and to Kashmir. The Handicraft is one of the mainstays of economy fetching huge foreign exhange to Kashmir and contributing to employment generation,” he said.

Ghani assured full support to Handicraft department in promoting genuine Kashmir Handicraft.
