Promote traditional designs: Governor�s wife to artisans

By The Assam Tribune

GUWAHATI, May 1 - The wife of the Governor of Arunachal Pradesh, Neelam Misra, today visited the Research and Designing Centre at Doimukh, one of the oldest industrial centres under the Department of Textile and Handicrafts in the State, a press release received here stated. The First Lady visited various sections of the centre including weaving, embroidery, knitting, carpet making, wood carving, carpentry and painting, and interacted with officials, craftsmen, instructors and trainees.

Misra exhorted the craftsmen, instructors and trainees to promote traditional designs with innovation to add value to the locally produced articles. She also called upon them to go for intricate and time-honoured weaving designs with beads and silk threads.

The First Lady said that weaving, wood carving and carpet making are common to every household in the State. Though native expertise leads to the production of quality items, yet artisans get only a fraction of the selling price of their products. She encouraged the artisans, particularly the trainees, to develop entrepreneurship and marketing skills.

While appreciating the products of the Doimukh centre, she urged the officials to work with enthusiasm for better output and create a good working ambience for training and innovation.

TC Kapa, Deputy Director of Papum Pare district Textile, Handloom and Handicrafts, and Kaman Pertin, Assistant Director, Textile, Handloom and Handicrafts, briefed the First Lady on the centre and the challenges it has been facing, the release added.
