This is a handspun and handwoven cotton scarf. White triangular motifs and metallic thread stripes are inlaid into the border.  The scarf has a gold metallic thread selvage and is finished with hand-twisted tassels. This piece is designed by Paromita Banerjee, a young Kolkata-based textile designer.  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).
