National Institute Of Fashion Technology -kannur

The old name "Cannanore" is the anglicized type of the Malayalam word Kannur. As indicated by one sentiment, "Kannur" is a determination from Kanathur, an old town, the name of which survives even today in one of the wards of Kannur Municipality. Another rendition is that Kannur may have expected its name from one of the , divinities of the Hindu pantheon, a compound of two words, Kannan (Lord Krishna) and Ur (place)making it the place of Lord Krishna. In this connection, it merits specifying that the god of the Katalayi Sree Krishna sanctuary was initially introduced in a place of worship at Katalayi Kotta in the south eastern part of the present Kannur town.

National Institute of Fashion Technology was set up in 1986 under the aegis of the Ministry of Textiles, Government of India.
