October 5, 2023 | by imphaleastmegahandloomcluster.com
The construction of a new workshed has commenced in a part of Imphal East as part of the Mega Handloom Cluster project. This initiative aims to provide a dedicated space for local artisans to carry out their handloom work and promote the growth of the handloom industry in the region.
The Mega Handloom Cluster project is a government-led initiative that aims to boost the handloom sector by providing infrastructure support and training to weavers and artisans. The construction of the workshed is a crucial step in creating a conducive environment for the artisans to work efficiently and improve their productivity.
The workshed will be equipped with modern facilities such as ample lighting, ventilation, and ergonomic workstations to ensure the comfort and safety of the artisans. It will also have designated areas for dyeing, weaving, and finishing processes, allowing for a streamlined workflow.
By providing a dedicated workshed, the Mega Handloom Cluster project aims to address the challenges faced by local artisans, such as inadequate workspace and lack of modern infrastructure. This will not only enhance the productivity of the artisans but also attract more young individuals to take up handloom weaving as a sustainable livelihood option.
The construction of the workshed is expected to be completed within the next few months, after which it will be handed over to the local artisans. The government will also provide necessary training and support to the artisans to help them make the most of the new infrastructure.
