The Jamdani weaving technique is the most refined weaving technique and is often referred to as the mother of all weaves. The word Jamdani is derived from the Persian word – ‘jam' meaning flower, and ‘dani' a vase.
Made from a gossamer pure cotton yarn, a jamdani is so light that it's often referred to as thin air and it can move with the lightest breeze. The Jamdani from Banaras was mostly done on cotton but with changing times we also see jamdani on katan and kora silk. In banaras we often use Ektara technique to weave pure silver and gold zari in fine cotton and silks. The jamdani is truly a saree connoisseur's delight and an heirloom that deserves much respect for the sheer effort that went into weaving each masterpiece
