One of the most intensive and laborious forms of handloom weaves it is no surprise that it is considered to be one of the most prized fabrics in the world.
Jamdani weaving is time-consuming and labor-intensive because of the richness of its motifs which are created directly on the loom using the discontinuous weft technique. It is like tapestry work where small shuttles of colored, gold, or silver threads pass through the weft.
This naturally dyed piece gets the shade of yellow from marigold flowers. To make the yellow more appealing we have used a contrasting bluish tone for the borders. The combination of yellow and golden is as mesmerizing as the golden yellow light during sunset. The subtle golden tinge in the border running between the blue triangular motifs is nothing less than an ornamental piece. The blue and golden buttas are scattered all over the sari. The golden buttas have camouflaged themselves with the color of the sari but the actual show of the piece comes out when light falls on it.
