Two handloom clusters to come up in Salem

Aug '08
With the aim to ensure the overall development and modernization of handlooms in Salem district, two handloom clusters have been formed for weavers in the Attayampatti and Edapadi regions.

The clusters would be established under the Government sponsored Integrated Handloom Cluster Development Scheme and will help build the capacity of the weavers to confidently face the challenges prevalent in the market and global competition posed by neighboring countries.

The Attaiyampatti cluster would encompass about 300 weavers in Attaiyampatti, Chennagiri, S Papparapatti, and Marulaiyampalayam panchayats who are engaged in making dhotis under the State Government scheme. The other Edapadi cluster would have a total of 265 weavers in Vellandi Valasu, Dathapuram, Nachiapalayam, Chettipatti, Thevur and Edapadi urban areas.

While the Government would grant a financial back up of Rs5.99 million over a period of three years for Attaiyampatti cluster, it will provide the Edapadi cluster with Rs5.26 million.

The cluster framework would enable the Government to meet the specific requirements of the weavers including supply of raw materials like yarn, marketing support, design input, modernization of weaving units and the overall welfare of weavers.

Provisions would also be made for the training of weavers on aspects like design development, production and marketing.
