ISHOW 2019: Unnati Solar Silk Reeler

Unnati, created by Resham Sutra Pvt. Ltd., is a solar powered machine for reeling Tassar silk yarn. Tassar silk cocoons grow in forest areas of East India. As these are some of the remotest and poorest parts of the country, the people there have extremely poor access to electricity. They use traditional manual methods to reel silk resulting in poor productivity and quality. Unnati increases efficiency in reeling silk and improves quality of life, especially for rural women.
