Muziris Sales Emporium
The Emporium is recognized by the Ministry of Textiles as a source for promoting natural fibre products. It is a space vital to the artisan to display and sell his produce at a competitive price. It is indeed the ‘weavers’ home’.
The most noteworthy point of the Natural Fibre Crafts centre, is that it reflects the character of the people. These artisans are the torch bearers of a rich heritage and a great historic legacy. The Muziris Heritage Project is where heritage and tradition of the people is preserved for posterity. KIDS which is based in Kottapuram, is a significant part of the Muziris project.
Establishment of Sales Emporia
KIDS has been awarded a full fledged sales Emporia by the Ministry of Textiles for the promotion of natural fibre products of the SHG artisans of the area. First of its kind, the Emporia is expected to be of great help for the poor rural artisans who otherwise find it very difficult to market the products in an organized manner.
