Jamdani (Bengali: জামদানি), produced in South Rupshi, Narayanganj, Dhaka District, Bangladesh for centuries, is one of the finest muslin textiles of Bengal. The historic production of jamdani was patronized by imperial warrants of the Mughal emperors. Due to colonial import policies favouring industrially manufactured textiles, the Bengali jamdani and muslin industries rapidly declined under British colonialism. In more recent years, the production of jamdani has witnessed a revival in Bangladesh. Today it is carried forward in Bengal too.
