The Inspiring weaves of the Bengal handloom cottons Sarees are known worldwide. Fine texture weaves, transparent, airy and very comfortable, the Bengal handloom cotton Saree is ideal for hot climate and sultry weather. Comfortable, colourful and classy, the pure cotton Sarees of Bengal, are known for their attractive borders, hand woven Bootis with fancy motifs, exquisite embroidery and exotic hand-painting of the local tribal art.

The Bengal Jamdhani handloom cotton Sarees are known for their soft and comfortable feel with eye-catching geometrical and floral patterns, having motifs hand-woven in golden Zari thread. This hand-woven technique of Jamdhani, a prominent feature on Bengal handloom Sarees, has universal application today, by inclusion even in other traditional handloom weaves across India, such as Banarasi Sarees, Venkatagiri cotton Sarees, Uppada cotton Sarees, Kanchi cotton Sarees, Darmavaram cotton Sarees etc. 

Based on the variations in the Jamdani weave, Sarees can be termed as Daccai Jamdani, known for its colourful motifs, the Shantipur Jamdhani for its soft texture, the Fulia Tangail Jamdani for its traditional borders and the Dhaniakhali Jamdhani for its colourful hues.
