A two-month training program on weaving, which commenced on November 10 at the training centre of Lamding Cherapur Handloom Cluster, Wangjing, Thoubal district, has concluded recently.

This training program was organized by DIC, Thoubal, under the integrated handloom development scheme to make women proficient in certain specialized weaving skills by using advanced designing machines, including, jacquard, dobby and jalla.

20 women, two from each ten self-help groups of Wangjing area, underwent this training program and gained knowledge of modern weaving and designing techniques to produce improved and more attractive handloom products as per current market trends.

Training to produce specially designed traditional phanek (wrap-around), shawls, bed sheets, mufflers, salwar-kameez and shirt pieces had been imparted thoroughly to the trainees.

This training program was first of its kind in Manipur, stated the general manager of DIC Thoubal. Three handloom clusters have already been opened in the state by the DIC Thoubal and 30 more clusters will be established soon.
