An ode to the craft of handweaving, our collection honours the charm of handspun, handwoven fabric. Handlooms in India have been traced back to the 15th century in the busy streets of Bengal. Under the Mughal rule in the 16th and 17th centuries, the craft was enhanced with Muslin and Jamdani weaving, which is one of the most intricate and delicate arts to master. Over the years, weavers have nestled in textile clusters and formed families that hone this beautiful art and pass it through generations to come.
The finest fabric sourced from some of the most artistic weaving communities in Bengal, our handwoven jamdani fabric is created with the expertise and dexterity of immensely skilled artisans. A weaving technique passed down through generations, handloom is practised in West Bengal with great passion and enthusiasm for the craft. An intricate method that requires precision, skill, and perfect rhythm, handweaving jamdani fabric involves placing a denser thread to fine wrap meticulously, each weft done individually by hand. When completed, the piece is a stunning combination of more than a thousand wrap threads that eloquently sit together in elegance.
One of the most amusing aspects of handwoven fabric is the human touch. No two fabrics are created with machine-like symmetry. Slight irregularities that pride the mark of a weaver’s handmade work are a special addition to our pieces, with exclusive handmade stitching details that uplift the garment and lend a characteristic uniqueness, adding to the charisma of handwoven fabric.
