It was decided to prepare handbags from Khadi, according to the needs and problem of different segments of the society, a series of new designs of Khadi handbags were prepared at MGIRI. With the help of trained human-resources of MGIRI several experiments in training and production were conducted. The aim of the institute in conducting these experiments was to finalise the pathway for creation of more and more employment for the general mass as well as to give new dimensions to fashion accessories using Khadi. Field trainers nurtured by MGIRI were engaged by different organizations of Wardha, to organise training in bag making. The experiment is to bring about plausible changes in the rural mentality.
