Handlooms Buyers-Sellers meet held in Ahmedabad

07
Oct '09
A Buyers-Sellers Meet (BSM) was jointly organized by Office of the Development Commissioner (Handlooms), Ministry of Textiles, Government of India and Weavers Service Centre at Ahmedabad, yesterday.

In his welcome address Mr Narendra Solanki, Deputy Director, Weavers Service Centre (WSC), Ahmedabad enumerated several schemes that were proposed by the Ministry of Textiles which benefited the cause and economic upliftment of the weaver community at large.

Addressing as the Chief Guest of the function, Mr Prahladbhai Parmar, Chariman, Gujarat State Handloom Weavers Cooperative Federation Limited (SOCOF) appreciated the efforts of the Government and WSC Ahmedabad in particular, singling out the efforts of Mr Solanki and his team at organizing and conducting the BSM.

A call was given to the weavers community to come forward in a cooperative manner, gain awareness of the various schemes floated by the Ministry of Textiles and avail benefit of these under heads such as Integrated Cluster Development Scheme, skill upgradation, design intervention, publicity and marketing, margin money, weaving programmes, Common Facilitation Centre, participation at exhibitions and conduct of BSMs.

Despite the above efforts of the Textiles Ministry and local officials support, it was felt by one and all that the weaver community was not taking advantage of the schemes even as they failed to get remunerative prices due to lack of marketing efforts. General apathy among the community led to their younger generation migrating to other higher income generating occupations.

There are 513 handloom clusters in India among which, ten are in Gujarat State. Of these ten, one is serviced by WSC and the rest are under Gujarat State Handloom and Handicrafts Development Corporation Limited, Gandhinagar.

At the BSM, three cooperatives put up their stalls under the aegis of Ahmedabad Weavers Cluster with interesting products like handmade durries, bedsheets, carpets, bed spreads, chaddars and womens dresses with wonderful patch work etc.
