FAQs

1. We have shared the weaving videos of our saris on our Instagram page. We like to document the weaving process.

2. The word Muslin means a plain woven fine cotton cloth. Over the ages the degrees of fineness have varied, as according to the varying thread counts. Muslin has been always used for a variety of purposes, including utilities & has not been associated with only saris or Jamdanis.

3. Jacquard is an additional device fitted to looms, comprising punch cards.

4. Cutwork is a technique where the extra weft threads on the reverse side are cut manually, after weaving.

5. Traditional Jamdanis, woven in pit-loom, are woven in a technique which is more valuable, time consuming & hence more expensive. Here there are no extra weft threads to be cut on the reverse side. It's woven more laboriously, in one go. The Jamdanis of the past used to be more of this category & the weavers of this technique are decreasing in numbers.

The sari item code f12 is of this category, a Traditional Hand Woven Jamdani. As woven in West Bengal & not in Dhaka, it should not be called Dhakai Jamdani.

6. All our saris are evolved soft drapes. They are not the starched stiff cottons, as seen sometime back in Bengal. Softness is a very important element for us, for all our saris.
