Assamese silk products to soon get distinct trademark

Apr '13
Responding to the demand of the Sualkuchi weavers for a separate silk trademark, the government of Assam, a state in North-eastern India, would soon launch a distinct silk trademark for the state’s silk products, Ms. Pranati Phukan, Assam’s Minister for Sericulture, Handloom, and Textile & Cultural Affairs, has said.
 
Speaking at a meeting organized on the last day of the Karbi Jutang Festival at Bakaliaghat in Karbi Anglong, she said the state government does not plan to impose a ban on sale of Benarasi silk products in the state.
 
However, it is determined to conserve the traditions of Sualkuchi and would give importance to sale of silk products of Sualkuchi.
 
The affluent culture of the every single indigenous tribe of the state adds to the state’s unity and uniqueness. It is not possible to think of the state’s cultural development, in absence of development of culture of these tribes, the Minister said.
 
Assam is the third largest silk producing state in India and accounts for 99 percent and 65 percent of all Muga and Eri silk produced in India.
 
Sualkuchi, popularly known as "Manchester of Assam", is an old craft village on the northern banks of the river Brahmaputra, having silk-rearing and weaving communities as majority of its population.
