Jamdani weave of West Bengal is one of the finest varieties of muslin handwoven from cotton. This art flourished under Mughal patronage.
The name Jamdani is of Persian origin and comes from the word “jam” meaning flower and “dani” meaning vase. The name is suggestive of the beautiful floral motifs on these sarees.
The base fabric for Jamdani is unbleached cotton yarn and the design is woven using bleached cotton yarns to create a light-and-dark effect. It results in the vibrant patterns that appear to float on a shimmering surface, which is a feature unique to Jamdani sarees.
