Woolen handicraft is a traditional skill practiced in hill district of Uttarakhand and has
been vertically passed on for generations. The geography of hill districts viz. high altitude,
mountainous terrain, cold climate but excellent sunshine provides ideal conditions for rearing of
animals like sheep, Angora rabbits and Pashmina goats. This creates an environment, which
permits extraction of finest quality of wool.The major advantage of woolen handicraft sector is
its enormous employment potential despite low investment of capital; however, the industry is
not geared up to tap this opportunity.In Uttarakhand, weavers produce a lot of woolen craft per
year, yet the socio economic condition of the weavers continues to be poor. The woolen carpet
business needs to address various challenges at different stages i.e. improving availability of
requisite quality and quantity of raw material, wool processing, grading, design improvement,
strengthening of marketing arrangements and mobilizing institutional finance for growth of this
industry. All these stages involve a chain of intermediaries. The present paper is an attempt to
explore the existingsupply chain scenario of the woolen handicraft sector in hill districts of
Uttarakhand. Exploratory research design was used for the study and Chamoli and Pithoragarh
district of Uttarakhand were selected purposively as they had highest production among the
districts. Primary data was collected from traders, retailers and artisans involved in the trade
through interviews and structured questionnaire. The result of the study highlights various
constraints and the issues afflicting the supply chain.
