Institute comes out with 16 new silk fabric items
Jan '11
The Sericulture Research and Development Institute (SRDI), has developed 16 new ranges of items produced from silk fabric with the help of the weaving technique “suksuk”. The move is seen to boost the financial potential of silk which is greatly in demand in the market.

Suksuk is a weaving technique that relates back to the legacy of the old people from Ilocos region in Philippines.

The new ranges of products are likely to narrow down the wide demand-supply gap for fabrics weaved using the suksuk technique, which now touches 3.494 million meters for whole of the country and 165,589 meters only for the Ilocos region.

Suksuk which stands to be an ancient legacy of the Filipinos, now also has taken the form of a budding MSME (micro, small, and medium enterprises) industry. In this technique weft threads are passed through the wrap yarns to make excellent designs.

Woven handloom items prepared using Filipino tropical yarns are much sought after at present and is looked upon to maintain the strong grip on the market even in the times to come. This is reflected from the rise in the number of orders that the SRDI is getting from various buyers.
