L'Usine Textile du Rwanda or Utexrwa as the name it is known by, has temporarily suspended the production of silk fabrics and garments due to low production of silk cocoons and will resume production and also expand the capacity of the reeling machines once cocoons are available in good quantity.

In an interview with Fibre2fashion, the Managing Director of Utexrwa, Mr Rajendran said that, “We are receiving inquiry from overseas clients especially from US & Canada who are giving bulk orders and hence to fulfill their orders we need silk cocoons in bulk quantity, which is not currently available in sufficient quantity”.

He added by saying, “So, we are not able to meet the orders from the current supply of cocoon production and there is a severe need of raising silk cocoons production to meet the orders. The Government is making efforts to cope up with the situation and fulfill the demand by increasing the silk cocoon cultivation”.

He continued, “The Government is providing scientific training to the farmers for rearing silk worms, due to which only, we are currently undertaking exports of yarn, by accepting small orders from Canada, but have postponed big orders for next six months and to overcome the short supply, we have done plantation on 15 hectares of land provided by the Government”.

“Now, we are cultivating our own silk cocoons, but it is at a growth stage, so it will take other six months for fruitful result. Our current requirement is 12,000 kgs per, month, which we expect to be available in another six months”, he concluded by saying.
