Handwoven Bengal cotton Jamdani saree in black with intricate zari work.

Handwoven Bengal Cotton

Size: Standard Saree Length

ENDÉ arose from the love for all things handloom; to co-create, curate, design and uplift.

Endé's cotton and cotton silk sarees are handwoven by artisan communities of Bengal, Mangalgiri, Maheshwar and Chanderi.

Stands for "mine" in Malayalam, in its most loving form, Endé’s collection shows the connect between the wearer and her prized piece of nine yards of grace.

Known as 'tant', the Bengal cotton saree's hallmark is the use of locally grown cotton, whose handspun yarn adds to the feather-like texture.

The simplest of tant sarees take about 10-12 hours to weave and the more intricate ones can take up to 4-5 days. The designs are drawn by an artist and transcribed onto soft cardboards by perforating them which are then suspended from the loom.

In Jamdani, motifs are inlaid into the fabric by adding a denser thread to fine warp threads by hand. This process is considered to be one of the most advanced hand weaving techniques in the world.
