Barabanki handloom cluster exports 95% of goods

Barabanki Handloom Cluster in Uttar Pradesh is famous for weaving since the Nawab period of Lucknow. About 95% of the turnover of this handloom cluster is exported. Most of the facilities are outsourced by cluster actors as the demands of the export market are heavy and time bound.

The cluster is a good destination for stoles and scarves and some of the world famous designs are being exported to various Middle East and European countries. The cluster has brought about improvements in its dyeing quality with installation of dyeing facilities and up-gradation of the existing dye houses.

The weavers can be categorized into 2 types, based on their skill:
- Weaver who produce higher end products such as stoles, scarves & shawls for the export market.
- Weavers who produce low quality products such as Gamcha for the local market.

Financing for the Barabanki district cluster is covered by Rashtriya Sam Vikas Yojana Scheme under backward district initiative. Under the scheme, infrastructure facilities like roads can be developed. Besides the scheme also provides training and other facilities.

Amongst other financing facilities available are the common financing to facilitate cheaper institutional finances like Mutual Credit Guarantee Scheme and common finance to facilitate common facility centers and common raw material purchase.
