Collective trademark cold shouldered by carpet makers

Owing to lack of unanimity between the exporter's and manufacturer's association, carpet producers have rejected government's proposal of introducing a collective trademark for Nepali carpets.

The government insisted on the collective trademark with an expectation that, this would aid the once popular export item of Nepal to regain its lost ground. A Ministry of Commerce and Supplies (MoCS) taskforce had been advocating for the collective trademark as a key, to lift the country's dwindling carpet exports.

The taskforce has already formulated a draft of recommendations citing several measures to perk up the declining commodity exports. Items like coffee, tea and Pashmina have already been registered by the Nepali government for collective trademark within the country.

The taskforce has even necessitated constitution of a regulatory body to supervise the carpet industry and to promote the commodity in the countries which are prospective buyers of Nepali hand-knotted carpet.

In total there are about six wool producers, hand-knitted carpet exporters, carpet producers and machine-knitted carpet producers associations in Nepal.

The government is willing to help the carpet producers to get a collective trademark registered in Nepal as well as in other countries. Nonetheless, there is lack of accord on introduction of a collective trademark which is likely to help the Nepali garments earn an easy-access to the world markets.

A fall of 20.5 percent was witnessed in Nepali carpet exports during last fiscal year 2009-10, when it plummeted to Rs. 4.26 billion, over corresponding period last year.

However, a rise of 18.6 percent has been registered in carpet exports during initial eight months of the current fiscal year 2010-11 which grew to Rs. 3.10 billion, over last year. Australia, Belgium, Germany, Canada, UK, USA and Netherlands are the leading carpet importers from Nepal.
