This is a handspun and handwoven cotton scarf. White triangular motifs and metallic thread stripes are inlaid into the border.

This scarf was woven by jamdani weavers in rural West Bengal.
Jamdani is an age-old and laborious weaving technique that dates back to the Mughal era. In this technique, extra-weft supplementary motifs are inlaid by hand into the fabric while the threads are still on the loom. Jamdani is a Persian word dating back to Mughal times - Jam (flower) and Dani (vase).
