A very nice and colorful photo!
Jamdani is a fabric of fine cotton muslin of Bengali origin, with colored stripes and patterns. Whether figured or flowered, jamdani is a woven fabric in cotton, and it is undoubtedly one of the varieties of the finest muslin. Is one of the most artistic textile of the Bangladeshi weaver. Traditionally woven around Dhaka and created on the loom brocade, jamdani is fabulously rich in motifs.
Jamdani is believed to be a fusion of the ancient cloth-making techniques of Bengal (perhaps 2,000 years old) with the muslins produced by Bengali Muslims since the 14th century. Jamdani is the most expensive product of Dhaka looms since it requires the most lengthy and dedicated work.
Wonderful, dear Zaman! Thanks for the photo and for the text! Do women in Bangladesh wear Saris? I for sure would buy one those beautiful muslin creations if I ever came to your country!
