The ICT resource centre will have an appropriate textile designing software such as CHIC and CARPET – CAD, provided by Media Labs Asia, which will be customized according to the requirements of the weavers. This software will facilitate easy reproduction of traditional designs and aid immensely in their preservation. It will also provide assistance in combining the myriad existing designs, thereby enriching the creativity of the weavers.

The weavers therefore will themselves become designers and work in conjunction with market realities. The possibility of creating a rich library of designs will also be harnessed, organizing and categorizing the designs in order to make them easily accessible.

Through the use of high – end designing facilities, initiative endeavours to train 1000 weavers to create a minimum of 100 design patterns at weaving level.
