The Craft Cluster Initiative team of the Institute is administered by having a concept of craft integration within the academic requirement. It functions on an innovative idea with the support of Handicrafts and Handlooms towards the development of clusters and further benefits obtained by students with a mutual sharing of skill based work and the technical knowhow. NIFT, with active support from the Ministry of Rural Development, Office of Development Commissioner (Handicrafts & Handlooms) and National Centre for Jute Development is developing and implementing a craft cluster initiative towards the overall progress of craft and the cottage industries. The intention of the project is to involve NIFT’s professional capabilities in the areas of design, technology, marketing and management along with external expertise, and synergize all developmental activities by various government and non-government agencies.
