The coordinator said that the only challenge being faced was the lack of single platform to enhance and protect their interest of those engaged in the business. She therefore called on government to support them by increasing awareness for people to patronize more homemade products. She also urged government to use the prevailing environment and demand for Nigerian handcrafts as a platform to revive the nation’s textile sector.
