Smock Weaving as an Avenue for Self Employment in Upper East Region: Case Study of Bolgatanga Municipality

ABSTRACT

Smock has become an international cloth with its colourful designs. It is produced to meet the tastes and uses of the current trend in fashion. This study sought to investigate the importance of smock weaving as an avenue for self-employment. Participants for the study covered the very smock weavers, traders and end users in Bolgatanga Municipality with a sample size of 150 smock dealers. Purposive sampling technique was used in this research so that the researcher could collect specific and relevant data from all the participants. The study found that smock weaving constitutes a means of employment for the youth. Therefore, it can be concluded that, investing in the business will promote employment in the long run, however, lack of good training to help equip the youth with more skills and attitude is absent.
