Poomalai Vaniga Valagam is a cooperative society in Vellore that deals in the handicraft works of rural women in the area. The Poomalai Vaniga Valagam exports palm leaf articles. Various items like glass paintings, dolls, embroidered clothes, gifts articles, medicinal herbs and other kitchen items are available here.
Poomalai Vaniga Valagam supports numerous rural women in earning their daily livelihood without being dependent on others. This fair initiative was started in 2000. This is a recommended visit for travellers interested in handicrafts. Here, they will get a flavour of various items listed above and can carry them back home as a beautiful memory of Vellore and, in turn, help the rural women in the region in their living.
