The Madhya Pradesh government will set up a textile tourism circuit in Chanderi, Maheshwar, Srangpur and Bagh districts. These places are famous for fabrics and prints and also help to get tourist for their palaces, temples and archaeological sites. The government also plans to set up textile parks in these places where tourists can buy directly from weavers. It would reduce the price of products to around 40 per cent as there is no middle men involved in the process. The buyers would also be offered options to customize their dress material designs.
From carpet weaving to using different kinds of embroidery styles, textile printing, weaving of the silk and many other traditions, Madhya Pradesh has carved a special identity for itself. Weavers, printers and designers in the state keep themselves updated with the ongoing trends for catching up the pace. The initiatives are being undertaken by the MP Handicraft and Handloom Development Corporation. Chanderi and Maheshwar are fast emerging as tourist destination in the country.
