Dhakai Jamdani


Dhakai Jamdani sarees are distinguished from other varieties by it's fine texture resembling muslin and the elaborate and ornate workmanship. These sarees have multicolored linear or floral motifs all over the body ans have an exquisitely designed elaborate pallu. The mango motif signifying fertility,growth and martial bliss which is a very popular design in jamdani sarees. The Dhakai jamdani is woven painstakingly by hand on the old fashioned jala loom, and many take even upto one year to weave a single saree. It feels supple to the touch and drapes gently to reveal the contours of wearer.
