Behold Threads & Hands, Matter’s latest edition launch using the age-old technique of Jamdani

Those with a critical eye for craftsmanship will marvel over the Threads & Hands collection, the latest series of scarves to launch from Matter. This limited edition range employs a new technique in Matter's arsenal of artisan crafts. Known as Jamdani, this ancient art hails from the time of Bengal's imperial dynasty during the rule of Mughal emperors. 

Matter Threads & Hands Jamdani scarves

Acknowledged to be the most exquisite and artistic of Bengali craftsmanship, the threads of each patterned motif are painstaking hand-woven on a loom to make the finest muslin scarves.  How luxurious is it, you ask? From start to end, the journey from yarn to a finished scarf passes through 20 to 30 expert hands and takes a total of 63 days to complete.

Giving this historic technique a contemporary spin, Matter has worked in conjunction with New Delhi designer, Sonica Kapur to capture the timeless essence of the Jamdani art in six fresh colour variations. The Threads & Hands collection is exactly what scarf (and craft) lovers will covet — purely traditional creations of impeccable weave that echoes a modern day grace.
