Arunachal’s 1st lady meets Assam weavers, bats for exchange of ideas

The first lady suggested that local women must join hands, form societies, produce local hand-loom products, and do their viable marketing.

A group of local weavers and sericulture farmers from Arunachal Pradesh, led by the First Lady of the State Neelam Misra, visited the Silk Weaving Center of Indian Weavers Alliance Inc. in Assam’s Bhatiapara Village in Sivasagar on Tuesday.

The inmates of the Silk Weaving Centre shared their organizational setup, indigenous methods of spinning of Eri Silk, demonstrated processing of Eri and Muga Silk, Yarn processing from Cocoons to fabric, and natural dyeing methods.

The First Lady of the State emphasized that in the same way as adopted by the Bhatiapara weavers, the local weavers of Arunachal Pradesh villages must get together as self-help groups and promote their financial empowerment.

She suggested that local women must join hands, form societies, produce local handloom products, and do their viable marketing.

The First Lady of Arunachal Pradesh said that such concerted effort will hone their specialization, provide assured self-employment for the individual weavers in the groups and ensure better earnings. She advised the weavers to adopt the latest technologies for making their products commercially more attractive and affordable.

The First Lady of the State stressed quality control, maximum use of natural fibers, and natural colors. She also suggested the inculcation of new concepts to attract the global market.
