A word of Persian origin, jamdani is a combination of the words “Jam” and “Dani” which together means flower vase. It is also popular as a e defined by the gorgeous and festive aanchals that give life to various scenes and tales from Indian religious muslin cloth featuring a typical gray and white weave with the occasional mix of cotton and gold thread. Following Mughal patronage and its consequent decline during British rule, this exotic weave has once again come into demand owing to the elegance and artistic finish it carries. A rare masterpiece crafted to perfection and breathtaking beauty, jamdani saree holds its own when placed among other exquisite garments. The fabric is cherished as a gift and can be analogized as a shimmering surface that is strewn with precious jewels.
