Khadi and Village Industries Board (KVIB) will soon open Common Facility Centre (CFC) at Basholi in Jammu and Kashmir. It is aimed to assist pashmina shawl weaving units that are facing tough times. These shawls are extremely popular not only in India but also in international market. In order to cater the growing demand KVIB has taken this step.

Mr R C Sharma, Secretary and Chief Executive Officer (CEO), KVIB informed Fibre2fashion, “As per the guidelines of Government, the project will cost around Rs2.5 million, out of which 75 percent will be given by Govt and other implementing agencies will contribute the remaining amount. The centre will have modern looms and spinning machineries (6/8 spindle charkhas) along with other finishing equipments.”

While asserting about the facilities which the Centre will provide weavers Mr Sharma divulged, “Wages of the weavers will increase, at present they earn nearly Rs40 to Rs50 per piece but with 6/8 spindle they will get almost Rs120.

“Previously for one shawl the artisan earned Rs300 whereas now they will receive approximately Rs450. People working in product development will benefit with a rise of 50 to 60 percent. Nearly 1,200 weavers and around 3,800 spinners will be working here."

IIT Kanpur, Under Product Development, would provide training to produce various shades. Pashmina shawl that will be manufactured at Common Facility Centre will use vegetable dyes for colouring as these are very popular in overseas market.
