A legendary muslin from the Indo-Gangetic plane, is mentioned in many ancient travel diaries. The periplus of the Erythraean Sea, an ancient Greek maritime guide records the overwhelming demand for Indian muslin in ancient Rome. It is said that when the Buddha took parinirvaan, he was covered in the muslin made, perhaps, in the surrounding areas of Varanasi. Fast forward through the centuries, the imperially beautiful, sublime Jamdanis woven in the Varanasi regions are an artistic tribute to weaving technique aesthetic, combining the pure cotton yarn (a very high-count yard), with pure zari thread require a degree of expertise so that the metal thread doesn’t cut into the fine high count cotton.
