Thenzawl, in the state of Mizoram will be named a Handloom City, a government official said.

Parliamentary Secretary, Joseph Lalhimpuia announced this recently, when on a visit to the Handloom Complex under Industries Department in Thenzawl, Mizo News reported.

Located 43 kms from Aizwal, the state capital, Thenzawl is an important hub of traditional Mizo handloom industry, which produces rich and colorful varieties of Mizo traditional textiles.

Lalhimpuia said the Union Government had announced a scheme for setting up handloom clusters in the recent budget.

Under the same scheme, plan has been made to set up common facility centre in Thenzawl too, he said.

He added that the common facility centre will increase progress in the Thenzawl handloom sector and provide more benefits to the weavers.

Currently there are 821 handloom units in Thenzawl, which produced textiles valued at more than Rs 11 crore in the period January to June 2014.
