Bengal Tant Cotton Sarees are amongst the most popular cotton sarees worn by the women folk in West Bengal. Weaving of ‘Tant’ which refers to the handloom weaving in Bengal, can be traced back to the 15th century in Shantipur in the Nadia district of West Bengal that continued to flourish during the Mughal rule from the 16th to 18th century. During this time, tant sarees received extensive royal patronage along with muslin and jamdani weaving. While the fine muslins adorned the royal class, tant cotton sarees online became popular with the common folk. The weaving tradition continued during the British rule and it witnessed an inflow of modern weaving techniques like the introduction of the jacquard loom that is still used today. Characterized by thick borders and decorative pallus, these Bengal tant cotton sarees come in varied colors and colorful designs, displaying a variety of floral, paisley and other artistic motifs.
