khadi cotton weaving

Since 2013 JAMDANI has been recognised by UNESCO as an intangible cultural heritage (ICH) which is knowledge, or skill considered to be part of a place’s cultural heritage.

Weavers embroider amazingly beautiful and intricate motifs and geometric patterns on vibrant or muted colour cloth, in a 2000 year old ancient technique of the Bengal region.
We love this soft, lightweight muslin fabric which is like weaving air. Vividly patterned, sheer cotton fabric, traditionally woven on a handloom by artisans and apprentices around Dhaka.

Loved, commissioned and worn by the Royal and rich society over centuries, the skills of Jamdani weaving are passed down by parents to their children.

how to wash khadi clothesWashing Instructions:

  • In our experience it is best to hand wash your Khadi clothes, scarves and stoles in cold water. This washing guidance will increase the lifespan of this natural fabric.
  • To machine wash, we recommend washing on a slow, cold wash.
  • Please do not wash Khadi cotton in hot water as it may cause slight shrinkage and loss of natural dyed colour.
