Tehrathum district has been declared the 'capital of Dhaka clothes'. The Ministry of Industry, Commerce and Supply, and Myanglung Municipality jointly made such an announcement, organizing a programme at the Myanglung bazaar on Monday.

In recent times, Dhaka clothes have been a major source of income in the district. The Dhaka clothes are produced especially by the Limbu community. The district was announced the 'capital of Dhaka in a bid to promote the Dhaka industry along with the development of necessary skills, publicity, entrepreneurship, diversification and commercialization.

Ministry Secretary Arjun Prasad Pokhrel declared the district as the 'capital of Dhaka clothes' in the programme. In the programme, varieties of local cuisines and cultural pageants were also displayed.

Similarly, Mayor at Myanglung Municipality, Sanjay Kumar Tumbahamphe, informed that the local government was providing training on weaving Dhaka clothes. The time has come to promote the culture of Dhaka weaving at every home, he stressed. Marketing the product is equally imperative.

A total of 145 Dhaka industries have been registered at the Office of Small and Cottage Industries, Tehrathum. However, it is estimated that more than 1,000 Dhaka industries are running without being officially registered.

The Office further shared that the number of people getting training on Dhaka weaving has reached more than 10,000. The industry has given employment to 5,000 people in the district.

However, the entrepreneurs have complained that they were facing a shortage of raw materials and proper marketing of the products.

Entrepreneur Shova Dahal hoped their problems would be solved after the district is declared the 'capital of Dhaka clothes.'

The Dhaka garments such as sari, blouse, Daura suruwal, coat, tie, muffler, and kurta are being supplied across the country and exported as well.
