The Jamdani which has a rich historic background finds its origin in Bangladesh, known as Dhakai Jamdani. A celebrated fabric during the reign of the Mughal empire, the weavers of Samudragarh and Fulia in West Bengal seek to revive the Jamdani, one of the finest muslin textiles of Bengal. Woven with floral designs and fine motifs, the Jamdani reflects refinement.
Recognized as the most comfortable for Indian climate, the tant saree woven from cotton is distinguished for its lightness and transparency.

Exquisitely designed, the hand embroidery artists of Bolpur, West Bengal, seek to keep alive the indigenous art and craft form of the Kantha stitch. The rich synergy of the running stitches with bhorat stitches (filler stitches) make for splendid designs.
