Brief Notes on Darjeeling Woolen Product Manufacturing Cluster
Due to cold climatic condition of Darjeeling Hill Woolen Garments is a propriety requirement of people of all classes. Hence in the beginning the hand knitted woolen garments manufacturing was mostly famous from British era. It has become major earning source for house wives on Darjeeling town. Who manufacture woolen garments by hand knitting and later on using semi automatics machines. Their main market is Darjeeling town mostly on the side of Chowrasta mall and regular knitter have order supply basis business with garment shop. But all these enterprises are Micro households unit located in and around the village of Darjeeling Town. They develop pattern and design on their own capacity.

Mostly the knitter is from the semi educated family. They work in unorganized way lack of proper marketing knowledge, low materials i.e; assorted wool from local trader cased many hurdle in rapid improvement of their works in term of quality and quantity as well. However Darjeeling being a Tourist destination people visits this hill station from all over the country and abroad and love to buy Darjeeling woolen products. Hence we felt the growth of such products could be possible through organised way under Cluster development projects with modernization of production method, up gradation of the technology and organised marketing way.
