CHICAGO: About 18 Indian companies will participate in the 2011 edition of the International Home & Housewares Show taking place at the McCormick Place Convention Center here from March 6 to 8.

India pavilions will be set up by the Export Promotion Council for Handicrafts (EPCH) and Plastics Export Promotion Council (PLEXCONCIL), which will display various products of their member export houses at the international exhibition, a press release by the Consulate General of India said.

The Export Promotion Council for Handicrafts first took part in the exhibition in 2010. Its exporters will display a variety of Indian handloom fabrics and furnishings that are presently being exported to several firms in the United States and South America.

Five master craftsmen registered with the EPCH will display intricately designed handicraft products made from wood and other materials at the exhibition.

The master craftsmen will also demonstrate their intricate skills in carving and engraving at their stalls during the exhibition.

This will mark the fourth year that PLEXCONCIL is participating in this exhibition, with several exporters of plastic furniture, plastic mats, disposable plates, cutlery items and kitchen plastic wares taking part.

While 18 Indian companies will participate in this year’s fair under the aegis of the various Export Promotion Councils of India, some other Indian exporters will participate independently. They will showcase products like thermos kitchenware and hot cases, casseroles and tableware, pressure cookers, stainless steel cutlery and utensils.
