Dr Sharmila Nagaraj highlighted the issues of handicraft organisations and the need to showcase local art and artisans across India and other parts of the world. Himaja Kumar, assistant director of Weaver Service Centre, said “The organisation’s initiative of helping local weavers and showcasing their work on a global level will open up a world of opportunities for them.” Concluding the occasion, Amit Bhardwaj, one the co-founders, said "6Degree was envisioned to be one such community that would bind the various dimensions of the fashion and creative ecosystem.”
