Bhartiya Gramotthan sanstha which has been working with the traditional Woolen communities for the last 25 years, took this initiative and approached various agencies to bring this solution at an implementation level.
With the sponsorship from the Ministry of Textiles, Govt. of India, Bhartiya Gramotthan Sanstha established a Common Facility Centre in Rishikesh. The common facility centre has started functioning and is providing the facility of carding, spinning and finishing of raw wool and woolen fabrics, to the artisans of Uttrakhand. This scheme will help the weavers/artisans of Ambedkar Hast Shilp Vikas Yojna & other Handicrafts workers of Garhwal hills as well as whole Uttrakhand state.
we purchase raw wool from the sheep rearers & process the raw wool into woolen yarn. Afterwards this woolen yarn is used to make woolen products like sweaters, stoles, pullovers, lohi etc.
