It is a surprise how strong the delicate darling is. Even though she looked like a mildly aggressive wind could break her, she could never be impacted by anything from outside. No one could make her do anything against her will. She bloomed at her own pace and danced to her own song. Her fragrance was one of freedom and her beauty was a picture of poise. No matter how strong the outside world was, it had to wait for her to do her own thing at her own time. But, when she did finally bloom, it was worth the wait for the rest of the world!

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 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 motifsappear like they are floating on the extremely delicate and thin sheer-like base of the saree.
