Silver Filigree of Karimnagar gets a ‘silver’ opportunity; to present gifts to Ivanka Trump

Karimnagar: The Karimnagar based filigree items manufacturing unit, Silver Filigree of Karimnagar (SFK), is preparing gifts to be presented to Ivanka Trump, daughter of US President Donald Trump and advisor to US government, during her upcoming visit to Hyderabad for the Global Entrepreneurship Summit (GES).

Besides Ivanka, the unit has also bagged an opportunity to prepare gifts for Prime Minister Narendra Modi and other guests who are scheduled to arrive in Hyderabad for the summit and launch of the Hyderabad Metro Rail.

It is a customary practice to honour guests by presenting them with gifts and mementos. For this purpose, the State government has given an order of Rs 40 lakh to SFK to manufacture attractive gifts and mementos. A month ago, the government had sent a list of gift items and 50 mementos required for the purpose through the Collector.

Based on the order, SFK has prepared Charminar (3kg), Peacock (4kg), Veena (2 1/2kg), Hans (1 1/2kg) and Kakatiya Thoranam (3kg). A total of 77 employees were engaged in preparing the items.

Speaking to Telangana Today, SFK general secretary Ashok expressed his happiness over getting an opportunity to manufacture filigree items for Ivanka, the Prime Minister and other international guests, adding that the State government is encouraging the art form and pulled it out from various issues plaguing it before State formation.
