Assam organises handloom workshop for tribal women
Jun '11
With an aim to help the tribal women, Assam government has organized a month-long handloom workshop in Guwahati. It is being attended by 50 women from various self-help groups and NGOs in the region.

The workshop is intended to provide training to the tribal women in all facets of weaving, which includes comprehensive production techniques, price calculation mechanism, design development, and effective marketing of the woven products in the country.

The tribal women, for whom it is a liberating experience, are attending the workshop to learn new weaving techniques as it is not possible to gain such exposure while being at home. The workshop focuses on several aspects which includes technology and different weaving techniques.

The women attending the programme said that it would help them to generate good returns for hand-woven goods if they are marketed efficiently.

Hand-woven clothes are in great demand across the country, particularly the traditional Assamese sari, which is produced in the region and fetches really good prices in the cities.

The introduction of new technology through training is expected to help handloom weavers to produce more number of items in lesser time.
