The Nagaland Handloom & Handicrafts Development Corporation Ltd., was set up in the year 1979 as a Government Undertaking with the main objectives of production of Handloom and Handicrafts products indigenous to the state, marketing of finished products and the promotion of the handloom and handicraft sector of the state. In pursuance of these objectives, the Corporation is actively carrying out production work at its Craft Development Centre and the Weaving Production Centre located at its Head Office premises at Dimapur. This is in addition to distributing raw material to groups of weavers/artisans for production on fixed rate basis while at the same time procuring finished products from registered members (production units registered with the Corporation) for marketing at the various sales units located within and outside the State. Promotional activities such as organizing of Exhibitions and Fairs within and outside the State are also carried out regularly to provide a platform to weavers/artisans to promote their products as well as to educate them about the intricacies of the market.

 With the abundant availability of skills and resources, the Handloom and Handicraft sector has the potential to grow and contribute positively to the economy of the state. More importantly, the development of this sector would directly influence the income and quality of life of weavers and artisans in the rural areas that in turn would account for economic and social development in the rural areas as almost every household in the villages of the state can boast of having skilled weavers and craftsmen. The Corporation recognizes this tremendous potential and is also working towards creating awareness about this sector through its activities.
