Handloom weavers set to get much needed boost

Oct '08
Office of the Development Commissioner, Handlooms, under the Ministry of Textiles has kick started a project called 'Integrated handloom Cluster Development” to help in development and strengthen the handloom sector across the country.

The programme will provide weavers across the country training to improve their skills and adapt modern techniques and designs to generate maximum profits. In the beginning the project will focus on 170 clusters having 500 handlooms each.

The Office of the Development Commissioner will be closely assisted by Entrepreneurship Development Institute of India (EDI), Ahmedabad, and which is also the national resource agency for the project.

Fibre2fashion spoke to Mr. Manoj Mishra, Project Director, Integrated Handloom Clusters Development Programme and who holds a position as associate senior faculty in EDI who said, “In first phase the project has covered 20 cities in 12 states, including Himachal Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, Tamil Nadu, Kerala, Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh, West Bengal, Orissa and Manipur”.

He added by saying “253 people had been provided training and these are the people who will assist in the project. In second phase, Integrated Handloom Cluster Development is focusing on clusters with a size of 500 looms each in which 12 clusters from Gujarat are included.”

The project would provide help in improving quality of their products, giving market information to sell products and introduce them to new designs and modern techniques. EDI will assist in setting up a common facility centre and generate a favourable atmosphere to give the much needed boost to an otherwise fragmented sector.

National Institute of Fashion Technology (NIFT) and National Institute of Design (NID) will also support by providing new designs and patterns in sync with market demand.
