Dimapur Woolen Expo, the second of the three woollen expos being organized by the Indian Chamber of Commerce (ICC), has begun in Dimapur, the commercial hub of Nagaland, on Thursday and would go on till December 10, 2011.

ICC, a foremost industry and trade institution in east and Northeast region of the country, is organizing the 10-day wool exhibitions and cultural programmes in Meghalaya's Shillong, Nagaland's Dimapur and Assam's Guwahati.

Through the expositions, ICC aims to exhibit and promote the wool products prepared by the weavers of the Northeast region and to encourage the wool weavers from the region to market their products and to hold a publicity campaign to encourage the use of wool.

The Shillong Woolen Expo 2011 held in November was a success as it invited participation of 50 weavers, self help groups (SHGs) and entrepreneurs, alongside thousands of visitors.

At the Dimapur Woolen Expo, being organized by the ICC in association with the Central Wool Development Board, Government of India, alongside local weavers, weavers and traders from all over the Northeast and eastern regions of India are taking part.

Speaking about the expo, Senior Advisor of ICC, Ms. Nakib Ahmed, said production of fine wool textile items in India has been a speciality of craftsmanship of handloom weavers from Kashmir in the North to several manufacturing centres in Punjab, Rajasthan and Uttar Pradesh for over centuries. Different kinds of hair obtained from animals in hilly areas were processed by these artisans to prepare fine goods such as rugs, shawls and carpets, she added.

She further stated that Indian wool industry has a unique significance as it is a major source of employment for rural people. While Northeastern regions do not produce wool per se, demand for woollen items remain high in these regions owing to the fact that this part of the country largely comprises of hilly areas, which experience winters for longer duration as compared to other regions of the country.
