Jun '09
A corporation under the State Industries department named Jharcraft has started an apllique training program for 600 santhal women in Jamundi block of Dhumaria, Dumka. The corporation intends to promote handloom and handicraft items of the state.

Jharcraft in association with the designers of National Institute of Fashion Technology (NIFT) will impart one month training to these women working under different self-help groups (SHG). Each batch of this program will include 30 women.

In this regard, the Special Secretary of the Industries department, Mr. Dhirendra Kumar said that the women of Santhal tribe have been chosen for this training program as the area is dominated by this tribe. The program mainly aims to promote Santhali culture.

This training has been started since May 21 with two pilot batches. The women will be given specialized training so that they can show off their culture, habits and lifestyle in via the products they produce, he added.

After the training these Santhal women will express the history, background and art of their community by using organic silk and cotton in the handicrafts. Along with training, these women will also be helped by finding a market for their products as well.

Mr. Kumar said that the people of the country and even of this state are unaware of the beauty of this tribal art. The art work of Santhal's called Ittlan will be portrayed on the garments and the Santhal designs will be replicated on saris and dress materials as well.

The NIFT designers will also train the women on correct themes, colours and fabrics. They will also pay regular visits to the area as well. These designers have been advised to carry out thorough research and not miss out on anything.

With this activity, the tribal women will able to earn a minimum of Rs. 2,000, which can be doubled, if they devote eight hours to this activity everyday, added Mr. Kumar.
