You can benefit from this trend by adding a local touch or a story to your product. Offer choice and coordinated concepts so consumers can combine products to create their own collection.

EPCH takes design protection initiative- ‘Design Register’ to craft hubs, conducts consultation meetings with stakeholder

As part of its design protection initiative, EPCH launched its Design Register a year ago, enabling member exporters to register their designs in a simple procedure. Design Register is a functionary which is set up as dispute resolution between all registered members of EPCH. EPCH felt the pressing need for a dispute redressal mechanism as there has been rising instances of designs of one member exporter being copied by another. As part of the Design Register process, all products of the Council’s member exporters would be required to get registered on the online portal after which a unique number will be provided to each one of them for their specific product. As a result, no other manufacturer can copy it. The date on which a product is conceptualised and has come into form will be the date on which a registered exporter can register it. The manner for the registration is being provided on the official site of EPCH - www.epch.in. This is a plan for an initial period of 5 years. In this regard, EPCH is conducting consultation meetings with stakeholders of various craft hubs and regions, with the recent ones being in Saharanpur, Bangalore and Jodhpur, Kolkata......more
