"It was a world filled with the same colours, the same shapes, but with a little more love. It was a world where human beings were ok with being just small dots in the wonder that nature is. They took pride in blending in with the surroundings rather than standing out. And, they bowed down to the green, living just how they were meant to live. It was a world where flowers bloomed a bit more and trees grew taller. Natureâ€™s hues looked brighter and most importantly, all lives were lived completely. ." ___________________________________________________
This earthy handloom cotton saree with pretty Jamdani work will take you to a world that is as beautiful as ours, but just a little better! The Jamdani is a testimony to the beautiful union of Mughal and ancient Indian cultures. Though the exquisite weave has been quite popular even before the Mughals, it is under them that Jamdani flourished and rose to become a weave that the world took notice of. The name Jamdani comes from the Persian language, the official language of the Mughals. Jam means flower and Dani means vase, symbolising the floral motifs that were popularly used in the weave. What it was called before this and its exact origins remain a mystery to date. However, the weave is said to have originated in Dhaka in present day Bangladesh. This art has earned recognition from the UNESCO as an Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity. The Jamdani is one of the finest cotton muslin fabrics that you can find. It is woven by hand using a supplementary weft technique where the motifs are woven on the loom itself. Unbleached cotton yarn is used for the base while bleached yarn is used for the design to create an effect of depth. The designs are drawn on graph papers and placed below the saree to weave the exact pattern. Threads of gold, silver and other colours are passed through the weft while weaving, making the motifs appear like they are floating on the extremely delicate and thin sheer-like base of the saree. Jamdani sarees are painstakingly woven by master weavers and their mastery is reflected in the surreal gorgeousness of each saree.
