Barsha Phukan is an Indian fashion designer and handloom specialist from Assam. She is also the joint secretary of Northeast India Fashion and Design Council (FNDC).[1][2]

The North East-Institute of Advanced Studies (NE-IAS) felicitated Phukan along with other 12 distinguished women for her contribution to fashion industry.[3]

COVID-19 pandemic and annual floods are leaving Assam's handloom weavers with little to stay afloat; there is looming uncertainty pervading their livelihoods & future. In an interview on such situation, she said that:

Weavers are our backbone. I have currently 25 weavers, who have been working with me for the last six years. If we don’t help them in these trying times, they have nowhere to go. I am paying them full salary and accommodation till now, though there is hardly any revenue in the recent months.[4]
