Natural Fiber based product development
The District has a good resource base of Natural
Fibers such as Agave sisalana, Stinging Nettle, Industrial Hemp etc.
These fibers have been brought to limited use by the local weaving
community of Bhotias who have traditionally worked with wool.
AAGAAS is working with the weaver community on Research & Development
aimed at developing new product lines from these natural fibres. It is
hoped that with constant material research and design and technical
up-gradation efforts, the mountain community will expand their market
base in new markets for eco-textiles and souvenirs.
