A fashion show to mark 100 years of Bihar
Eco Tasar Silk Pvt Ltd, an organisation working on Tassar Silk, and Bihar State Small Industries Corp Ltd are organising the show on April 1 at Talkatora Indoor Stadium in New Delhi.
Bihar is known for tassar silk and traditional weaving skills. Eco Tasar is trying to promote this through the fashion show, said Khitish Pandya, managing director, Eco Tasar Pvt ltd.
"Bihar is a rich state known for its very old and revered handloom weaving centres of Bhagalpur, Nalanda and Bihar Sharif. Traditionally a lot of tassar silk gets woven in Bihar.
"We have been associated with the state since 2000. We are thankful to have artisans of Bihar working with us to keep the spirit of the silk tradition alive," Pandya said in a statement.
