Our team conducted a feasibility study to evaluate if silk production in Mandi, Himachal Pradesh, India can be expanded. We gathered information on: practices within this field; the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats associated with this industry; and the interests and abilities of local farmers to produce silk. We collected data primarily through interviews and archival research. Regional silk production in HP may soon become endangered, but making it more self-contained and efficient could instigate expansion. We recommend that the government communicates more effectively with producers and processors of silk, and for investments to mitigate certain issues limiting silk producers' ability to be successful, such as diseases killing the silkworms they raise.
