Micro Enterprises Development for Poverty Alleviation -Volume 2 (Prospects of Increasing the Usage of Allo Yarn in Carpet Factories in Kathmandu)
PDF File Size: 348 KB | Download   
Carpet weaving is an old tradition in Nepal. Carpet is a major export item. Natural fibers like jute, hemp, Allo, etc. are gaining popularity in the carpet market. The supply of Allo yarn has not met the demand of carpet factory. This study was conducted to analyze the prospect of increasing the use of Allo yarn in carpet manufacturing. The producers are getting a gross profit of Rs 83/kg Allo yarn. Since more than 80 percent of the cost of production is due to family labor, most of the return from Allo yarn production goes to the family. The export of Nepalese carpets is in decreasing trend over the years due to deteriorating quality, and issue of environment and child labor use. As Allo harvesting is much below its potential (only 20% exploited), programs like MEDEP should promote Allo yarn enterprises for harnessing its full potential. To achieve efficiency in production, the harvesters should be equipped with the gloves for harvesting and machines for processing and spinning.
