Besides local stakeholders, participants of the workshop acquired quality knowledge on embossing varied designs on silk fabrics through natural dye processes.

This was informed by Puberun Sharma, one of the two experts who conducted the workshop on natural dye (colouring) with naturally extracted plant parts like flowers, leaves, tree bark etc.The other expert was Naramohan Das.

Sharma said that this time they could train local fringe village people of Kaziranga about 15 different shades of thread. Already, a business deal had been inked by different trade agencies of Bengaluru and Delhi and orders were placed for different cloth made of natural dye and other items which were exhibited at the workshop.

In all, 40 different stalls were put up by the people, including local communities of Kaziranga where varied fabrics coloured by natural dye, handloom design, besides handicrafts made of bamboo etc., were on display.

Next year the Nyas has resolved to organise a village-level workshop so that more and more communities can be imparted knowledge on natural dye making so as to increase their quantum of income. The 10-day festival concluded on Sunday.
