Made By: We work with a weaving cluster, based in Bardhman district where our Jamdani Dupattas are woven, by female spinners (called Catuni) and weavers.
Jamdani: The highly skilled craftsmen of Bengal weave magic by their hands called Jamdani which is an intricate design made using hands on the weaving loom. It is considered as one of the most time consuming and laborious work. It is a supplementary weft technique of weaving, where the artistic motifs are produced by a non-structural weft. The standard weft (base fabric) is a fine( muslin of 100 and above thread count) and sheer fabric, while the supplementary weft with thicker threads adds the intricate patterns. Each supplementary weft motif is added separately by hand while weaving on the loom. Jamdani muslin fabric is expensive due to its laborious work which requires a lot of patience, skill and effort while making these textiles. As consumers it is important to understand the difference and support the skills of artisans still working in this beautiful but painstaking technique.
