If you want to deck up your home with eco-friendly decors this festive season, Handloom Utsav is an ideal place to shop.

The expo has an ensemble of handloom fabrics on display. From soft and delicate bed linen to curtains, eco-friendly cushions to table mats, diwan sets to towels, and handmade doormats to jute bags made of natural dye form part of the exhibit.

Self-designed cloth mats, floral printed bedspreads, multi-utility table mats in neutral shades, bedside mats, and an assortment of printed and plain bedcovers tend to catch one’s attention. Table cloths range from Rs.40 to Rs.300. Single bedspread ranges between Rs.250 and Rs.450. Double bedspreads range from Rs.600 to Rs.1,250.

For college girls and working women, jute bags worth Rs.150 can be found. Speaking about the cotton material and its growing demand, expo organiser A.S. Madhav said, “The products are made of 100 per cent cotton, jute and other natural fabrics with no chemical content added to the weaves and prints. We started our work in 1996 with natural colouring source from Tamil Nadu and from then on we have been producing eco-friendly weaves. Though our manufacturing unit is in Warangal, this is the 17th time we are organising the fair in the city. And we get a tremendous response for our materials,” he said.

The fair will be open till October 25 between 10 a.m. and 9 p.m. at Maitri Hall of Hotel Daspalla.
