TECHNIQUE: BENGAL JAMDANI WEAVE
For over 2,000 years, along the banks of the mighty Ganges, weavers in Bengal have been perfecting a textile art-form like no other. Fine cotton fibers are painstakingly drawn and spun into a slender muslin yarn, which is dyed, washed and dried along the riverbanks. Hundreds of little motifs are then individually hand-stitched using the Jamdani technique while the yarn is being loomed. Bengal muslin is the softest sheer cotton we’ve laid hands on and is a perfect foil for many applications.
