From the capital of Bangladesh


Originating from Dhaka, the capital city of Bangladesh, Dhakai sarees showcase a perfect blend of traditional elegance and contemporary allure. The fine muslin fabric, often a combination of silk and cotton, provides a lightweight and sheer texture that is comfortable to wear, particularly in warmer climates.


What sets the Dhakai saree apart 


The hallmark of Dhakai sarees lies in the intricate handwoven designs created through the Jamdani weaving technique. Skilled artisans manually add supplementary weft threads to the loom, crafting elaborate patterns that often feature floral motifs, geometric shapes, and traditional symbols. The sheerness of the fabric adds a touch of delicacy to the saree, enhancing its overall appeal.


A drape for special occasions 


Dhakai sarees are not just garments but cultural statements with deep-rooted significance in Bengali culture. Worn on special occasions such as weddings and festivals, these sarees are a symbol of tradition and refinement.


Deep-rooted cultural significance 


The cultural significance of Dhakai sarees is reflected in the diverse range of designs and motifs that adorn them. Traditional patterns often depict scenes from mythology, celebrating the region's flora and fauna. The Mughal influence during the mediaeval period further enriched Dhakai sarees with intricate zari work and Persian-inspired motifs, creating a fusion of cultural elements.


An artisanal masterpiece 


Despite changing fashion trends, the art of Dhakai weaving has been preserved through generations. Artisans in Dhaka and other weaving clusters continue to employ traditional techniques, ensuring the authenticity and charm of Dhakai sarees endure.
