IIPM Kolkata on 3rd March 2014 organized a Rural Trip in East Midnapur to a human hair factory More than an educational trip, it was fun trio where education was fun.

The students visited places where hair processing works were going on and got to know about how the works are done and processed step by step. Finally they reached the factory and saw many works working on hair. There was a warehouse where all the processed hairs were kept and the person in-charge explained how these hairs will be turned into wigs and extensions. These hairs are made into wigs and extensions of different colors. Fashion is closely related to hairs and this industry serves this purpose of supplying it. This industry of human hair along in Chandipur district earns more than Rs.200 Crores of turnovers on average. Imagine the kind of aggressive market they are getting into. These are exported to China and Latin America This trip was out of the box experience for me. It was informative as well as fun oriented.
