Earliest record of handloom saree weaving in Bengal can be traced back to the 15th century in Shantipur in the Nadia district of West Bengal. The art continued to flourish during the Mughal era around the 16th to 18th century when Bengali tant sarees were woven in and around Decca which is the present day Dhaka in Bangladesh. With encouragement from the royal families, tant handloom sarees gained popularity under their guidance alongside jamdani and muslin weaving. However during British governance, this celebrated art was intended to be destroyed in order to protect the Manchester textile industry of Britain. Once the Bengal province was divided in 1947, many skilled workers from Dhaka migrated to places like Hoogly, Nadia and Burdwan district of West Bengal and made this craft popular in West Bengal.
