Silk yarn shortage hits Kosa centre

Dec '09
The government run, Kosa centre in Bastar district, which was opened last year, has run in to trouble in raw kosa silk yarn procurement, which has brought it to a verge of a closure.

The middle-men and traders are purchasing the silk yarn from farmers at higher prices, due to which these farmers have stopped supplying to the centre, throwing the activities of the centre in to a crisis.

Kosa silk is produced in a good quantity in the Bastar region on Arjun, Saja or Sal trees. Two yarn procurement centres had been set up in the predominant cocoon growing areas, but they met with failure as farmers preferred to sell it to traders.

The centre which was set up at a cost of Rs 10 million has specialized in designing various types of silk clothing like saris and salwars in womens clothing and shirts, kurtas and jackets in mens garments.
