Natural Fiber Cluster Development

The Lakkavanahally Natural Fibre Cluster in Chitradurga, with a humble beginning by few poor women under the guidance of IDF and Gramya Turnkey Services (P) Ltd during 2003-04 has traversed a long distance empowering more than 200 families in the surrounding five villages. The artistic skills of these women in hand-crafted products using natural fibres such as banana fibre, river grass, Hibiscus, wool, etc are honed up through the skill up gradation training programs (SUTPs) and Design and Technical Development under the Ambedkar Hasthshilp Vikas Yojana ( AHVY ) of the Development Commissioner (Handicrafts).
