‘Jamdani Festival 2019’ starts

Bangladesh Jatiya Karushilpa Parishad – National Crafts Council of Bangladesh (NCCB) is organising a month-long Jamdani Festival, in collaboration with the Bengal Foundation from September 6 at Bengal Shilpalay, Dhanmondi in the capital.
It is also being partnered by four outstanding craft organisations of Bangladesh – Aarong, Aranya, Tangail Saree Kutir and Kumudini. For the first time ever images of antique Jamdanis, the famous ” the loom figured Muslin ” of Dhaka, have been sourced from international museums and private collectors to be replicated by masterweavers as well as the best of our young generation weavers.
The Festival will highlight and celebrate this unique textile tradition of Bangladesh which has received UNESCO’s Citation as the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity of Bangladesh in 2013 and the National GI Certification in 2014.
