Handicrafts village craves for Govt support

Sep '09
Handicraft industry in Mana Village in Chamboli district of Uttarakhand is struggling for existence as the government is not paying, attention, needed towards handicraft sector of the village.

The handloom or handicraft artisans of the village have somehow treasured their centuries old culture and art, but now it has become difficult for them to continue with it further.

The government has not offered any assistance to these artisans, either by way of funds, modern machines and equipments as well as marketing outlets, which could motivate and encourage the artisans to continue with their work.

The artisans here do cutting, weaving and many such tasks by hands and make beautiful carpets, sweaters etc but as they are not receiving any help from government, the returns they get for their hard work are meager.

Artisans say that even a bit of government's help would save the age-old tradition from extinction. They can manufacture more beautiful products if the government provides them contemporary machines, and funds to buy wool, along with marketing assistance.

Artisans lament that they are compelled to continue with traditional craft-making methods, despite the fact that the Government has introduced various schemes for handicraft promotion.

Women artisans of the village are experts in creating handmade woolen pullovers, Asan (small mat), Dan (carpet), 'Chutka' (a type of woolen blanket or quilt), hand-driven fans, but they are forced to sell their products at cheaper rates even if there is a high demand for hand-made products in the market, only, due to lack of proper marketing outlet.
