  • (1888PressRelease) April 06, 2017 - The booming handicrafts sector in India welcomes SilkRute as a B2B handicrafts portal recently launched to extend the reach of Indian handicraft makers and sellers globally. People behind the scene publicize the portal as a pioneer in cross border handicrafts selling that relies on the modern trends like multichannel marketing.

    The first look at the portal's services lends out the impression of it being a one-stop destination to recognize markets, manage catalogues and pricing, conduct promotions and leverage multiple payment options. SilkRute, as the brains behind the portal claim, is inspired by the ancient Silk Route, not just in name but also in the way the trade route helped to spread the culture across thousands of miles. The official SilkRute spokesman says, "When it could be possible centuries ago, why not today when there are faster and easier ways for global trading."

    Sharing an insight into the growth of the Indian handicrafts industry, he says, "The Exports Promotional Council for Handicrafts reported the growth of 18.25% in handicrafts export for the period of April-September, 2016. Not only that, they anticipate a further growth of 10% this year, which roughly accounts to INR 23,560 crores. It clearly confirms that the handicrafts sector, believed to be the second largest employment generator in India, is heading towards its prime time. Our cross border b2b ecommerce company has geared up to catalyze the change in a revolutionary manner."

    SilkRute claims to empower the sellers from India to sell handicrafts internationally, including marketplaces that have always placed great demand for these products and the new markets as well. "The Indian handicrafts already have a good standing in the US, UK, UAE, Germany, Canada and Australia and many other countries. Interestingly, the Indian sellers and exporters have started catering to the marketplaces in China, India's arch rival whose handicrafts and machine-made products have always influenced the Indian counterparts. Art metalware, woodware, glassware, pottery and many other categories are now in great demand in China. Our motive is to provide a unique platform to the sellers from India to participate in these changing dynamics," shares the spokesman.

    The portal promotes multichannel marketing systems, which also includes the extremely-hyped mobile marketing, social media marketing and several other techniques to reach the international marketplace. It boasts of a network of service providers like logistics companies and bringing together the services like multi-lingual support, automated translation system, customs clearance, worldwide multiple payment options and more to make the process much simplified for sellers. Before signing off, the spokesman concludes, "We believe in the unlimited scopes and values of India's rich arts and crafts and are willing to take them to their deserving levels."
