The patrons of this Persian import were the Mughals with the weavers being summoned to the royal courts from Persia. The long shawl was meant to be draped over luxuriously, and therefore, needed to have great width and length, quite like the robes of Monarchs. Thus, the name, Jamavaar. Jama, or robe and Vaar or yards. In the 19th century embroidery was introduced into the fold and it became common to use the fine technique of Sozni to make a Jamavaar Shawl which was no longer woven but dexterously embroidered quite in the style of the magnificent Jamavaar. The Jamavaar is now only found with collectors or in museums. It remains among the legion of legends
Mohamed from Srinagar belongs to an artisan family which is carrying forward the tradition of making Jamawar,a gown piece and is a special shawl made in Kashmir. Jama means robe and War is chest or body and is made using very fine quality Pashmina wool sourced from Ladakh. It takes him months to year to create these pieces of art and is highly valued because of intricate hand embroidery.
