While celebrating important functions and festivals Indian Women prefer to wear Soft and Royal Silk – the Queen of Textiles. As consumers, while buying Pure Silks, it is our prime responsibility and right to get the right material. However, many of the consumers get cheated from unscrupulous traders/ Expo’s selling Art Silk or look-alike products which are produced from cheaper material like viscose Rayon, Polyester and Nylon etc. This menace is continuing unabated across the length and breadth of the country. In order to control this menace of unethical trade practices, the Silk Mark Organization of India, under the initiative of the Central Silk Board, Ministry of Textiles, Govt. of India, has introduced the Silk Mark scheme. Silk Mark helps the consumers to easily identify genuine pure natural silk products and go for hassle-free shopping. Silk Mark is a quality assurance label which signifies that the product to which it is affixed is made of pure Silk.
Silk Mark Organization of India, Central Silk Board, Ministry of Textile, Govt. of India is making all efforts to create awareness about the importance of Pure Silk among the Silk Loving consumers through Silk Mark Expos. These provide a wide platform for small Handloom Weavers / Women Entrepreneurs / Traders / Handloom Societies besides creating a Brand Image for Indian Silks.
