Jamdani fabrics are woven by hand, by master craftspeople, without the use of electricity! The designs are woven into the cloth while it's on the loom. See how they're made in A Look at Jamdani Weaving. Many of these fabrics are made of incredibly soft, hand-spun khadi cotton, so fine that the motifs seem to float — use them to make beautiful blouses and dresses, airy scarves, and lingerie. (Some garments may need to be lined or layered; try our cotton voile.)
Jamdani weaving has been declared by UNESCO to be an “Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity” — let's help to preserve it!
