. Bengal has been a harbinger of some of the finest weaving traditions anywhere in India. Be it Jamdani or Baluchari, Bengal has given iconic handloom traditions to the world. From finest silk weaves to feathery cotton weaves, Bengal has it all. Let us take you into the world of Phulia’s Tangail tant (handloom) weaving.
Tangail is a type of weave that gets its name from the place it originated. Tangail is a sleepy village that now lies in Bangladesh. The Basaks were the Jaat Tantis (Weaver by caste) of Tangail and other neighbouring villages. However, after Partition, the Basaks have been slowly immigrating to West Bengal (WB) state of India and settling in various districts like Nadia, Nabadwip, Hooghly, Howrah etc. Needless to say they brought their craft with them and have kept the weaving tradition alive. Phulia is a verdant town in Nadia district about 90 KM from Kolkata as the Jeep plies on NH12. There are over 5000 weavers in this town who work their magic one weft and one warp at time. The famous Jamdani weave has also immigrated with the Basaks. Though Bangladesh holds the GI Tag for Jamdani, most of the Jamdanis are woven in this hinterland of WB. The muslin and fine cotton Jamdani sarees of Nadia district are world famous. Other less famous weaves are the Santipur and Begumpuri cotton sarees. In addition to cottons the weavers also produce various types of silk saress – Mulberry Silk, Tussar Silk, Matka Silk, Eri Silk, Muga Silk, Ghicha Silk et al. The weaver have also taken to linen as the raw material.
