The handloom sector has a unique place in Indian economy and plays a vital role in the economic development of the rural poor. Despite several measures taken by the government by the way of institutional support and direct financial assistance to the handloom weavers, they have been in miserable state due to myriad problems and are sustaining continuous losses. Still it is undeniable that handloom won’t lose its market share because of its deep cultural and aesthetic value but it has to face head-on competition of all forms to retain its traditional importance along with its market share. Therefore for rural economic development of weaving community an active and penetrable market is necessary for the handloom products. The objective of the present study is to have an in-depth analysis of various causes that are responsible for the sustainable development of handloom. The paper basically reviews the vast literatures available to scale out different avenues for rural economic development of weaving community through sustainability of handloom.

Key words: Sustainability, Handloom, Economic development
