Tour Details

When one thinks of Bengal, one of the first things to pop up in our mind, right after the fish and sweets, is its thriving saree industry. Sarees form an integral part of every Bengali woman’s wardrobe and one of the most popular textiles that boast of a rich history and heritage is the Jamdani saree. Popularly known as Dhakai Jamdani or simply Dhakai, this art of textile weaving has its roots in Dhaka, Bangladesh. Considered to be one of finest variety of muslin that is handwoven from cotton, the art flourished under the Mughal patronage. Even the name, Jamdani, is of Persian origin and comes from the word “jam” meaning flower and “dani” meaning vase. The name is suggestive of the beautiful floral motifs on these sarees.

In our daylong Jamdani Weaving & Shopping tour, you will have an overview of Jamdani industry of Dhaka. In order to give you a first hand experience of the process of making Jamdani, we’ll arrange a visit to a village where you can meet the ancestors of the master weavers.
