Texcraft

Rejoice textile lovers! Jaipur, known as the centre hub of Textile now has its own Textile Park called “Jaipur Integrated TEXCRAFT Park Pvt. Ltd.” The Park is being created to prevent and control the pollution caused in Sanganer and nearby areas due to the chemical disposition from dyeing and painting of clothes in a large scale in the area. Spread across the area of 23.42 acre land in RICCO Industrial Area phase II, the TEXCRAFT Park aims to provide world class infrastructure and state of the art facilities to approx 20 unit holders with around 4 thousand artisans under one roof. the park has been set up with the combined efforts of a group of hand block printers and the endeavor has been to upscale and promote the traditional technologies keeping in line the modern needs and usage.It would facilitate city’s mini, micro and large textile companies for the production of textile and craft materials at one centre hub.

The park infrastructure is highly environment friendly with the additional facilities of water recycling that would ensure 90% of recycled water to be reused. Besides, a centre pond is also constructed for Rain Water Harvesting and that water would also be used for dyeing and painting at the Park.

Inaugurated by the Union minister for textiles Dr Kavuru Sambasiva Rao on Wednesday, July24, 2013, the Jaipur TEXCRAFT Park would also host Textile Training Programmes, Seminars, Workshops, Block Print and skill development programmes and designing programmes to benefit more and more aspiring artists in the country. Interestingly, now the families of traditional block printers in Sanganer would join this park and start their printing work from here itself.

The Jaipur TEXCRAFT Park certainly is a commendable initiative for big textile companies to work under one roof. It has open employment opportunities for women, direct employment to 4000 persons and indirect employment to 12,000 . And most important the park would also help in controlling the pollution.
