Origin and history of Jamdani Saree
The nameJamdanihas been derived from Persian origin that predominantly holds the Mughal influence in Bengal.The word Jamdani is a compound word where jam means flowers and dani stands for vase.Looking at the meaning of the name it is well understood that Jamdani sarees contain beautiful floral motifs all over the saree.According to Bengal,the name Dhakai is added to jamdani as most of the production of the product is held in Dhaka of Bangladesh.
Interestingly,if you go back to history,you will find that the mentioning of the Jamdani sarees happened way back in the 3rd century BC during the period of Chanakya.Significant references of the jamdani can also be found in books of Periplus of the Erythraean Sea.Although jamdani got immense popularity right from its inception,yet the major blooming of this art work happened during the Mughal era.Sadly,during the colonization of the British,the industry suffered a setback.Export of cheaper quality textile was one of the major reasons for the decline of the Jamdani.After the partition,many weavers migrated to the present day West Bengal.This marked a new beginning for the industry to flourish again.
Weaving process of Bangladeshi Dhakai Jamdani Saree
It is the process of weaving that decides whether you will get soft Bangladeshi dhakai jamdani sarees or a coarse one.First the basic material of jamdani is unbleached into cotton yarn and then woven using bleached cotton.This creates the dark and light effect of the jamdani.The whole process takes quite long time and the hand looming technique is tedious.The making process of cotton silk jamdani saree and linen jamdani sarees also involves supplementary weft technique along with the standard weft technique.
After the standard weft technique is done,the various motifs are added to it by interlacing the threads.For adding motifs,soft bamboo sticks are used with the help of individual spools.As a result,you get to see a radiant pattern that floats and shimmers on the surface.This is the only unique feature of jamdani that makes it so valuable than others.
Colors and motifs used in Jamdani Sarees
Previously,only bright colored jamdani were available.But with time,you can even manage to get ablack or yellow dhakai jamdani saree onlineat ease.
Currently,there has been a trend of the two different forms of jamdani sarees:
Self colored style that has the working on it with the same color
Half and half style where the inner and outer sections of the saree have complementary shades
Later on,after the 1960s,the red fabric or embroidered work on the jamdani became a massive hit.
Regarding the motifs,the designs on the jamdani are not outlined or sketched on top of it.Instead,they are drawn on a translucent graph paper and placed under the warp.Besides jamdani sarees,you will also find scarves,stoles,handkerchiefs and dupattas with jamdani work on them.Some of the popular motifs on jamdani sarees online are panna hajar,kalka,butidar,tersa,
Therefore,next time when you buy soft jamdani sarees online or offline,make sure that you buy the original ones.Fake products will not yield you the most comfort.The best that you can do to a jamdani saree is to dry clean it.
