A jamdani weave is a prime example of the power of handweaving since the entire process of weaving the motifs is extremely time consuming and done completely by hand.
The motifs are woven by a thicker yarn, called the extra supplementary weft which is woven one line at a time, to make the individual motif, along with the standard weft technique of weaving the base of the fabric. The base is usually of a sheer yarn than the motifs which is opaque on the surface.
In a good jamdani, the motifs on the back of the fabric, will be the same neatness as the front , which speaks volumes for the skill of the weaver and the tenacity with which he weaves every single piece.
This one is for keeps.
