Clusters to help UP weavers to compete globally

The Union Ministry for Textiles is all set to launch its cluster development scheme across five districts of the state of Uttar Pradesh. To impart training to weavers of the state is the key objective of this development program, in order to make the weavers capable of competing on international platform.

This program is expected to offer a boost to handloom weavers of the region. Six to eight clusters will be formed in each of the five districts, including Barabanki, Varanasi, Bijnore, Azamgarh and Amroha, with each cluster compromising of 300 to 500 weavers.

Designers from leading institutes such as National Institute of Design (NID) will impart training to the weavers to improve designs, while marketing entrepreneurs will offer them knowledge on market trends. This training will be commenced after identifying the clusters, by the Ministry's office of Development Commissioner for Handlooms,.

Deputy Director (Processing) at the office of Development Commissioner for Handlooms, Mr. A K Shukla, at the inaugural ceremony of a silk exhibition, 'Silk Fab', said that there are more than a dozen districts in the state where various handloom products are weaved.

But, products manufactured here don't witness demand in the international market as the weavers are still recreating old designs without bringing any improvement into it, in spite of having abundant manpower and raw material.
