Jamdani on Khadi, Cotton & Silk
The origin of the word 'jamdani' is uncertain. Like fine letterpress stationary, jamdani designs are deliciously subtle. Run your fingers across the cloth and feel the raised threads that outline the design. The method of weaving is akin to tapestry work. Small shuttles of individual threads are inserted into the weft. The design is slightly raised - it appears to float above the surface of the cloth. Jamdani is one of the world’s most ancient forms of textile design.
