Industree Skill Transform Pvt Ltd (ISTPL) is a skill development company that works with under-compensated handloom weavers and handicraft artisans, to enhance their design capabilities and make them employable. The company was incubated back in 2013 by Industree Foundation with support from the National Skill Development Corporation (NSDC).

“ISTPL works with under-compensated handloom weavers and handicraft artisans, who represent a large traditionally-skilled rural workforce that is unorganised and suffers from poor production infrastructure, working capital and contemporary entrepreneurial skills. ISTPL's intervention results in enhancing the design capabilities of producers and making them employable, as a result, increase their social and financial security,” said Sanjev Nagar, COO, ISTPL, in an interview with Fibre2Fashion.

ISTPL's intervention involves the capacity component of the 6C ecosystem, added Nagar. It focuses on setting a curriculum, with inputs from the Industree Foundation and with the case of some modules, using the framework set by NSDC.

The major focus areas of Industree includes livelihood generation with emphasis on increased and regular incomes and ensuring equitable and fair conditions in the apparel value chain, he stated. “Another focus area is the holistic development of women by focusing on empowerment at home and work, resilience to life crises and improved standard of living for the next generation.”

Nagar also said that Industree aligns its work with the United Nation's Sustainable Development Goals Framework namely gender equality, economic growth, responsible consumption and production. (KD)
