Textiles of Jammu & Kashmir


Calico prints from Sambha are extremely popular craft products. Masnads and jamas, which are hand-block printed by artisans of the area have been traditionally used as cool and comfortable floor coverings. The prints --- with their attractive floral and geometrical designs and fast colours --- have a ready market both within the state and outside it. This craft, which declined in the years immediately after Partition has now been revived. Also see: Embroidery of Jammu & Kashmir Zari, Zardozi, Tinsel Embroidery
