Amazon, Telangana team up to boost handloom sales
Amazon India has signed an MoU with the Telangana Department of Handloom and Textiles to educate, train and enable weavers and artisans to directly sell their products to Amazon customers across the country. According to a statement issued by the e-commerce giant last night, with over 17,000 handlooms in the State, this association will further help elevate popular handloom products from clusters such as are Pochampally, Warangal, Gadwal, Narayanpet and Siddipet that have a tremendous potential and demand in urban areas.
Amazon India through this association with the weavers and artisans in Telangana will help them boost their business by training them to list and sell their products online on the marketplace. Additionally, Amazon India and the department will collaborate to conduct various training programs including computer and internet training sessions and registration assistance programmes.
Amazon India will not only provide an online marketplace for marketing but will also engage with weavers and artisans across the State to train them on making the products more attractive, appealing and marketable across the online domain.
