Training will be imparted to the weavers, especially the women, in the basics of textile and apparel design. They will be active participants in this revolution; they will be the facilitators in the process of value addition, that is stitching and apparel design, which is presently being done by outside agencies.

This initiative endeavours to train the weavers to create a minimum of 100 design patterns for apparels. A core group of 5 weavers will be trained as master designers to guide the rest of their team.

The value addition will therefore take place by the weavers themselves, enabling the production of finished products in the form of apparels and other utility items instead of raw material. The weavers’ will finally be able to reap the profits of their toil, which were earlier appropriated by garment manufactories and other middle level agencies.
