A customer, Vishal, said that such exhibitions should be held more often, as they provide an insight about eco-friendly products. "Such kinds of exhibition should be held in all states of India, especially in capital and metropolitan cities, so that people can know about it and can purchase these products and commodities, as they are more eco-friendly," said Vishal.
Participating craftsmen expressed their delight over the increase in sales of their products. A shopkeeper, Abhijit Ghosh, said: "Earlier, our financial condition was not good and the National Jute Board is supporting us. It was getting difficult for us to sustain our livelihood. With this particpation of the National Jute Board, our economic condition has improved," said Ghosh. In all, 23 stalls have been put up by jute artisans and manufacturers. Such fairs not only bring the craftsmen into limelight, but also provide an opportunity to the people to find out more about the arts and crafts of other regions of the country.
