Arunachal weavers to benefit from CADC
Aug '12
The launch of the state’s first Computer Aided Design Centre (CADC), aimed at enhancing the skills of rural artisans and weavers is being looked upon as a major boost to the textiles and handicraft industries of Arunachal Pradesh, a state in north-eastern India.
Inaugurating the centre set up at Industrial Estate, Naharlagun, state Handicrafts and Industries Minister Tapang Taloh said it would allow local artisans to upgrade their skills and showcase innovative ideas through use of high-tech IT-based tools and techniques.
The Union Ministry of Communication & Information Technology’s Kolkata-based Centre for Development of Advance Computing (C-DAC) and the state’s Textile and Handicraft Department extended technical assistance for setting up the design centre.
Describing the training as skill-based and necessitating full dedication and commitment, state Textiles and Handicrafts Secretary Indira Mallo Jain requested the trainees to develop their designs while keeping in mind the materials used by weavers in the remote areas, and in view of the 26 traditional motifs of the state’s major tribes. This way, the products could be made more attractive, while making them cost-effective to raise their market acceptability as well as the weavers’ returns, she added.
Pledging the Department’s full support, she expressed hope that the training would enable weavers to produce goods with enhanced domestic as well as global acceptability.
