Project Description

 

Introduction:
The market for eco-friendly products is on rise, be it apparel or jewellery.
Making, using and disposing of products in the most sustainable way and using
sustainable materials have gained popularity and acceptance in the society
and markets across the globe. ‘Eco-friendly products’, made from sustainable
materials like bamboo, clay, terracotta, handloom and eco-beads, are a rage
among fashionistas, and gaining popularity both in the domestic and
international market. Bamboo is known as “Green Gold” and it has got
tremendous potential in creating sustainable economies around it. Odisha as a
state is endowed with many natural resources, and bamboo is one such
renewable natural resource that has got tremendous potential for creating
livelihood for millions of people in rural and tribal areas. However,
understanding bamboo as a sustainable raw material and transforming this
into different eco-friendly product categories requires interventions in skill
training, design training, handholding, providing required infrastructure,
developing market linkages etc. Out of many product possibilities from
bamboo, bamboo-based jewellery has got great potentials for creating
employment and enterprise development in rural areas particularly for
women.
Slogans like ‘Vocal for Local’, Make in Odisha, Make in India, Self-reliance and
Sustainability are adding further strength in creating livelihood opportunities
for people living in rural areas by using locally available resources. Rayagada is
predominantly a tribal district with approximately 58% of its population being
tribal. To their fortune different varieties of bamboo are found in the District,
which can be used to create marketable niche products like bamboo-based
jewellery, bamboo-based home décor products, bamboo-based mementos,
gifts and souvenirs.
With sustainability becoming the new mantra, bamboo-based handmade
jewellery and home-decor products can be a zero waste eco-friendly category
that can offer employment and livelihood opportunities to thousands of young
people in the rural areas. With appropriate training in skills, design, material,
infrastructure and market linkage there is a possibility of creating a
completely unique, new and sustainable economy around bamboo. Rayagada
as a District has got enormous scope for such interventions.

A Two-weeks training programme on “Bamboo-based Jewellery” making is
proposed to build the capacity of rural young women from Rayagada in order
to offer them self-employment opportunities using local resources. This
