West Bengal Jamdani Linen saree is quite unique in its nature.The centuries-old Jamdani (or Dhakai Jamdani) weaving tradition which originated in Dhaka, Bangladesh is today carried forward in West West Bengal as well. These are feather-light and sheer sarees, with fine motifs woven all over the body giving it a luxurious and grand finish. Especially, this traditional piece of art highlighting geometric patterns and flowers and tribal motifs.
FABRIC: Linen is a textile made from the fibers of the flax plant. Linen is laborious to manufacture, but the fiber is very absorbent and garments made of linen are valued for their exceptional coolness and freshness in hot weather. It has stood the test of time for many reasons. It is durable, resists moths, sheds dirt and does not produce lint. It is exceptionally absorbent, making it ideal for warm weather comfort. The fiber weaves into a strong fabric that dyes easily.
CARE: All linens wrinkle…it is part of their charm. There are several ways to deal with the wrinkles depending on your desired look. To preserve the smooth, crisp look of the fabrication, underline with organza, line with cotton, rayon or poly lining and press carefully. To soften the look, wash the fabric 4-5 times before making. The wrinkles, though still present, will have a soft rolling look as opposed to a hard crisp line. It is personal preference as to the end result you desire.
