Jamawar fabric, the ancient Kashmiri beauty that is here to stay

The elegant Jamawar shawl is everyone’s royal dream come true!! Its exquisite designs and motifs will appeal to all women’s eyes. The word "Jamawar" is derived from the words "Jama" and "War," which mean "shawl" and "yard" respectively.  Considering that it's composed of a wool and cotton blend, it is a fabricated replica of silk. One of the earliest forms of handwoven handicraft is jamawar fabric. It is handmade utilizing needlework. There isn't any manpower required, and there isn't any machinery used—just a needle. Most shawls need countless months and years to accomplish. Kanika Jamawar is a magnificent variety of Jamawar shawl created from threading sticks and motifs. The shawl's front and back are identical because they have been so skillfully created. The main allure of Jamawar Fabric, or Pashmina Jamawar Shawl, is the professional patchwork and impeccable patterns. Jamawar Fabric is made of Pashmina yarn obtained from goats interwoven with cotton and wool. Jamawars were initially created of just pure silk. Only the royal household and members of the elite donned these shawls. But because of contemporary technology and rapid looms, Jamawars are now accessible to anyone and everyone.


The Advent of the Jamawar


Around five centuries ago, this fabric traversed the region from Persia to Kashmir to the Indian subcontinent, but it was only during the Mughal era that Akbar, the Mughal emperor, gave this cloth the assistance it required to thrive in India. Historically, Jamawar shawls were handmade, and the procedure may take several years or possibly a century to accomplish. Jamavar became more accessible when the Jacquard loom was created in the latter part of the 18th century. Major advancements in weaving were made during the late nineteenth century. The flawless weaves and skilled needlework emphasized this fabric. Jamawar weaving, however, began to fade away towards the end of the nineteenth century as the Mughals' support waned. In contrast to Banarasi weave, where stray threads are not neatly stitched at the rear portion of the cloth, the motif in a Jamavar is entirely weaved into the fabric with no loose threads. Jamavar is typically employed to create shawls. The handwoven, pure silk Jamawar shawls feature exquisite paisley motifs and a distinguished appeal.


The Indian government made special efforts in the mid - twentieth century to restore its heritage textile businesses. The Jamawar fabric business had seen a comeback as a consequence of this along with the growing preference for exquisite indigenous textiles in India as well as international societies.


Styling a Jamawar Shawl


High-fashion designers are already drawn to the richness and intricacy of Jamawar fabric, that they've chosen to employ time and time again to produce exquisite designer shawls, like the very renowned reversible Jamawar shawls. A shawl made out of such a rich material requires meticulous styling and accessorizing when being used to create an outdoor look. The goal is to present a harmonious and visually appealing ensemble. Only if it is a bridal ensemble would various pieces of very heavy jewelry be suitable; else, it will create an unnecessary contrast. It is recommended to adhere with one or two pieces of traditional Indian jewelry for those other special occasions, such as a Kundan choker, Polki studs, diamond headgears, or gold bracelets.


FAQS


Q1. Where are Jamawar shawls manufactured in India most commonly?


They are manufactured in the states of Kashmir, Himachal Pradesh and Punjab.


Q2. What material is Jamawar?


Jamawar, also spelled Jamavar, is a type of fabric that originated in the region of Kashmir. The word jama refers to "a robe or shawl," while the word war refers to "Yard (the measuring unit)." People who lived in earlier times were known to purchase a yard of Jamawar shawl in order to keep themselves warm during the winter months. The Jamawar is a tainted version of the Pashmina silk because it is made with a combination of cotton and wool. In most cases, a single shawl or piece of fabric has a mixture of many different shades and colors, which gives the shawls a one-of-a-kind quality that cannot be replicated.


Q3. What is Jamawar fabric called in English?


The Kashmir area of India is known for the production of a unique kind of shawl known as a Jamawar. A "grown piece" is another name for this kind of shawl that falls within this category. The term "jama'' refers to a robe, while the word "war/var" can allude to the chest or the body in a metaphorical sense. Together, these words from the word "jama/war/var." When pashmina is the main fiber used to make Jamawar, the resulting product is of the highest quality possible. Both silk and polyester threads may be used to weave the brocaded parts, and the two types of threads seem extremely similar to one another.


Q4. What is Jamawar design?


Traditional Jamawar is fashioned from a luxurious combination of Pashmina wool, cotton, and silk (the base was most often wool, with silk and cotton embellishments woven into it). The completed weaving is quite iridescent since so many colors and patterns were used. Jamawar is easily distinguished by the fact that it is so carefully woven that both sides seem the same and there are no loose threads on the surface. The Persian paisley is the primary design theme, although other floral and animal designs are also present. Jamawars also frequently employ hand needlework, which is executed with unrestrained attention to detail.


Q5. Is Brocade and Jamawar the same?


The techniques of jamawar and brocade are both types of satin weave. In jamawar, the motifs are created by using the primary weft itself, resulting in an inlaid appearance. In brocade, on the other hand, the motifs are created by using supplementary warp or weft. In the textile business, we refer to a pattern as jamawar when the motifs contain more than one color, whereas brocade patterns often only have motifs in a single color. Jamawar rugs are known for their subdued designs and hues, which give off an air of an antique or bygone era. Although it is primarily a silk weave, we may also include some zari in the body or borders to make a cross-over fabric that combines the advantages of jamawar and brocade weaves in a single product.


Q6. What is Jamawar shawl?


Class, elegance, and a high level of sophistication and luxury. The Jamawar shawl can be described in many different ways, and these are just a few of them. The majority of the patterns used in today's designs are floral, with the kairy serving as the primary theme. Due to the fact that Jamawar shawls were traditionally produced by hand and some of them took several decades to finish, authentic Jamawar shawls command a very high price. The Jamawar shawl is truly that famous piece of fashion item that is able to instantaneously transmit to the rest of the world the ardor and fine tastes of the person who wears it.


Q7. What is Jamawar Banarasi fabric?


Production of Banarsi fabric in Banaras did not begin using the Jamawar method until the nineteenth century. If the satin weave method is used to create a Jamawar Banarsi fabric, it can be refined to an even higher level than it is usually used for. Because the Jamawar Banarsi saree is meant to be draped in a fashion that is suggestive of a Jamawar Banarsi, it relies just on the weft threads to create the design, whereas the zari technique needs either extra weft or supplementary warp. In contrast, the zari technique necessitates extra weft or warp to create the patterns. In contrast, this method makes use of the Zari method.
