While every effort is made to present the sarees in their natural colours , subtle variations between images and actual colours may be the result of lighting conditions and digital photography, and the colour/screen settings of your digital devices.
Slight irregularities are inherent to the process of creating traditional handwoven fabric. Instead of taking away from the beauty of the saree, they enhance its uniqueness and charm. The irregularities attest to the fact that the saree is a genuine, handcrafted product.
Jamdani combines the words jam (flower) and dani (vase or container). It is acknowledged as one of the world’s most advanced hand-weaving techniques characterized by rich, intricate motifs. The process is extremely time-consuming and laborious: some sarees may take nearly a year to weave. In 2013, UNESCO declared Jamdani weaving an Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity. Select expert weavers are recognized as bearers of the traditional Jamdani motifs and weaving techniques who pass down their skills to the next generation.
The base of Jamdani sarees originally comprised sheer, light muslin considered so fine that six yards of fabric could pass through a ring. A superior variety of cotton, native to a certain stretch of the Brahmaputra river, was used to create the muslin. While traditional Jamdani originated in Dhaka, the capital of present-day Bangladesh, the tradition is now carried forward in West Bengal. The fabric gained prominence during the Mughal rule in India. Although Jamdani weaving incorporates mostly geometrically-shaped floral motifs, other elements of nature also find representation.
