Handlooms, Cottage or Small-Scale businesses produce ornaments, garments, and commodities with distinctive designs and long-lasting durability throughout the Himalayan ranges, which are associated with many regions and states. In India, the state of Himachal Pradesh is located in the Himalayan region, one of the country's seven states. Hispanic and worldwide importance is accorded to the products manufactured by cottage and small-scale enterprises in Himachal Pradesh. Among the international treasures are handkerchiefs from the Chamba district, shawls from Kullu, Shimla (Rampur Bushahar) caps, and Kangra paintings, among others. Due to the effects of industrialization on large-scale highly mechanised industrial production, cottage and small-scale industrial activities in India have suffered significantly during the post-independence period, whereas small-scale industrial activities have relevance to the vast majority of the population in terms of entrepreneurialism, employability, and locally consumed goods. Micro, Small, and Medium-Sized Enterprises (MSMEs) in Himachal Pradesh face a number of issues today, which the study paper attempts to address in detail.
