A 15 month long Handloom Cluster Development Program opened on 17th November at Dimapur, in the state of Nagaland. The Indian Institute of Entrepreneurship (IIE) has organized this program, which is being sponsored by the office of the Small Industry Development Bank of India (SIDBI), Guwahati.

IIE, which is a National Institute under the Ministry of Micro, Small & Medium Enterprises Government of India, is conducting this program to develop the skills of artisans on handloom weaving products. Around 25 female artisans belonging to Schedule Tribe category enrolled themselves for the 1st batch of this program.

Mr. Gunaram Teron, Branch Manager, SIDBI (BO), Dimapur inaugurated the program and encouraged the entrepreneurs and artisans to capitalize their weaving skills through this development program. Also, one of the officials at the event explained about the various Government Schemes and business opportunities in Nagaland.

Handloom is an integral part in Naga society, wherein most of the traditional fabrics are woven by local women using their traditional loom and skills. These traditional fabrics enjoy good demand from buyers inside and outside the state.

Creating opportunities for the artisans by teaching new designs and generating awareness on the importance and feasibility of this trade, are the key objectives for conducting this program, said an official.
