Poetry in six yards! A Neelambari (blue) Banarasi cotton saree with incredibly beautiful Jamdani floral vines in gold and silver zari. The self zari paisleys and floral vines border gets a dash of vividness from a maroon edge. The pallu sees a recurrence of the Jamdani floral vines and paisleys of the border. The name Jamdani is of Persian origin and is strongly suggestive of Mughal influence. It is a compound word wherein “jam” means flower and “dani” means vase. The name is suggestive of the beautiful floral motifs that adorn these gorgeous sarees. Interestingly, the earliest mention of Jamdani sarees can be found in Chanakya’s Arthashastra, dating back to the 3rd century BC! This awesome creation comes with a self plain greyish blue blouse.
