Here are some of the frequently asked questions:
1. What does Jamdani mean, and how is it made?
Jamdani is a very finely woven cotton muslin fabric traditionally made on a handloom using the weft technique. It is used to create vibrant and beautiful motifs and patterns on cotton and silk saris or fabrics. The fine cotton yarn is first used to create a base for the fabric, and then the motifs and intricate patterns are made by hand on the material. It looks similar to tapestry work.
Jamdani has been a popular and age-old technique of weaving and decorating sarees in Bangladesh, famously known as Dhakai Jamdani. It has gained vast popularity in India, especially in East India.
Jamdani is a labour-intensive and time-consuming process where the fabric is handwoven by the craftsmen. This delicate traditional art of weaving takes special skills, a dedicated mindset as it takes; however, it takes nine whole months to create one Jamdani saree.
