To give boost to this sector, a Showroom cum Interpretation Centre at Government Woolen Mill, Bemina was established under the World Bank funded Jhelum Tawi Flood Recovery Project (JTRFP) which was recently inaugurated by Lieutenant Governor, Manoj Sinha.

Registration on the GeM portal was completed and Professional catalogues and brochures were also developed. Reputed designers are being roped in to develop new product ranges in line with present market trends and fashions.
