On the sidelines of the G20 Summit in New Delhi, a ‘Crafts Bazaar’ (Exhibition-cum-Sale) is being set up in Bharat Mandapam, Pragati Maidan from 8-10 September 2023. This Crafts Bazaar will showcase handicraft products from different parts of India with a special focus on One District One Product (ODOP), GI-tagged items and products crafted by women & tribal artisans.

Delegates and international media participating in the Summit will have an opportunity to visit this Crafts Bazaar and purchase locally sourced products. The Bazaar would thus not only promote made-in-India products on a global stage but also open up new economic and market opportunities for local artisans.

The exhibition is being organized by the G20 Secretariat in coordination with the Ministry of Textiles and State/UT Governments. Around 30 States and UTs as well as Central agencies like Khadi Village & Industries Commission, TRIFED, and Saras Ajeevika will be participating in the Crafts Bazaar.

About the Product: TRIBAL JEWELLERY

Tribal jewellery from Jharkhand's indigenous communities possesses a rich cultural heritage embodied in their intricate designs. The origins of this art form are deeply rooted in tribal traditions of the State, including those of Santhal, Munda, Ho, and Oraon communities.

These ornaments play a pivotal role in ceremonies, festivals, and weddings, signifying both identity and status. Silver, valued for its purity and protective properties, holds special significance in these creations. These tribal jewellery are passed down as heirlooms connecting generations, while also narrating tribal history and rituals.
