|Tangail Sarees - Spectacular Partywear|
While the Dhaki Jamdani saree is worn by fashion conscious working women for their elegance, Tangail saris offer a spectacular impact and is worn in bridal parties such as gaye halud and mehendi. These are mostly Jamdani motifs on Tangail fabric and are generally known by the confusing nomenclature of Tangail Jamdani. Although beige background is the most popular, these are available in a riot of colors, at affordable prices.
Tangail, Dhoneokali, Shantipuri and Begumpuri are other popular styles of Bengal handlooms in the lower price range.
Over the years, the distinctive patterns have merged as weavers started experimenting with various combinations of design and yarn, so much so, it is now difficult to distinguish between the various styles, unless one is an expert on texture.
