Organising Handloom Melas in IT office, facilities and Parks was an initiative TFMC embarked in the year 2017. Since then, barring two years of corona, five lakh IT employees were reached and awareness for handloom textiles was created. Almost all Meals were a huge hit with IT employees, added Satya.
Handloom Monday was a call given by Mr K.T. Rama Rao, Minister for IT, Govt of Telangana. It was an initiative to promote Handlooms and Support Weavers Community by wearing Handloom Clothes Every Monday.
As part of this drive, TFMC has been organising Handloom Melas from time to time. As part of that drive, it has organised 19 Handloom Melas so far.
Work From Home, Office, Village or Work from Anywhere, or work in Hybrid Mode, but wear ‘Handlooms Every Monday’ tells Telangana Facilities Management Council to all the IT employees. Several Facilities Management professionals and IT employees wearing Handloom clothes, blazers will grace the mela.
TFMC is the only body that has been taking forward the call given by K.T. Rama Rao. TFMC has organised 19 Handloom exhibitions at various IT facilities across the city. Through this mela, TFMC is reviving its pledge to support Handlooms and Weavers and promote them.
