A carpet cluster and a hosiery cluster will come up in Haryana. Carpet weaving calls for a high degree of skill and dexterity. A carpet consists of dyed pile yarns; a primary backing in which the yarns are sewn; a secondary backing that adds strength to the carpet; adhesive that binds the primary and secondary backings; and, in most cases, a cushion laid underneath the carpet to give it a softer, more luxurious feel.
Haryana wants to boost hosiery goods manufacturing in the state. The state will set up a hosiery cluster in Sirsa while the Centre would initially spend six crores to develop the cluster. A building will be constructed in the village. As a group about 120 people of the village would make sweaters, shirts and uniforms. Modern machines will be installed and the textiles would be marketed through tenders and other mediums which would prove beneficial for people working in this industry. All beneficiaries of the scheme belong to scheduled castes and backward classes and it is the first group of its kind in the country. Sirsa produces 40 per cent of the total cotton produced in the state and this area is famous as a cotton belt in the country.
