Bengal, India, is known for its handloom cotton saris. Fine texture weaves, transparent, airy and very comfortable, the Bengal handloom cotton sari is ideal for hot climes and sultry weather. Comfortable, colourful and classy, the cotton sarees are known for their attractive borders, hand woven bootis with fancy motifs, exquisite embroidery and exotic hand painting of tribal art.

The variety in the Bengal Handloom Cottons

The Bengal Jamdhani handloom cotton sarees are known as soft and comfortable wear 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 the traditional handloom varieties across India such as Banarasi, Venkatagiri, Uppada, Kanchipuram, Darmavaram 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 Dhonekai Jamdhani for its colourful hues. Another variety of cotton handlooms in Bengal is the Kantha sari, known mainly for its running stitch embroidery on cotton fabrics where other forms of stitches are also used sometimes. The cotton and gold thread work sets off a wonderful design that enhances the look of the fabric. Murshidabad, Hoogly Nadia and Burdwan situated in Bengal State are famous centres for Tant weaves. Likewise Dhaka and Tangail in Bangla Desh are also known for their Tant Sarees.

Motifs of flowers, the sun, and modern art depictions generally adorn the Tant Saree. The borders of the fabric are thicker than normal since they are prone to tearing. There are special Tant sarees like the 6 metre long white cotton fabric instead of the conventional 5.5 metre saree, it has a wide border between 1.5 and 2.0 inches in colours of green, blue, grey and black. The Saree has a mean count of 100 (No. of threads per square inch of warp and weft). Additions of hand painting and appliqué work enhance the price of the saree slightly. Tant Sarees are available as Pure Handloom Cotton Sarees using Meghalaya cotton, Bengal Cotton, Assam Cotton, Nagaland Cotton etc.
