India, Karomi Crafts & Textiles, Powder Blue Sishumi Jamdani Stole
Product name: Powder Blue Sishumi Jamdani Stole
Type of product: Stole
Description (story of the item):
This piece is a celebration of timeless Jamdani motif - Sishumi (flower). A contemporary take on the classical, it focuses on irregular placements and playful settings, taking tradition into the future. Finely woven using hand spun cotton in the weft, the fabric is both soft and translucent, further enhancing its traditional theme. This time and skill intensive stole takes the artisans community approximately 35 to 40 days to make.
At Karomi, we make 'design-driven’ Jamdani. Jamdani weave has been an integral part of Bengali tradition. Intricate motifs are woven in directly on the loom using the ‘extra weft’ weaving style. This historic craft has been passed down from generations through intense practice and discreet instructions followed by the Jamdani weavers of Bengal (India).
A Karomi Jamdani is different from the usual. It is characterised by randomness in design patterns and whimsical play of forms with large or no repeats, thus guaranteeing an 'authentic' Jamdani that is both artistic and future forward.
