The five-week ‘Jamdani Festival 2019’ ended on the premises of Bengal Shilpalaya in the capital’s Dhanmondi area on Saturday.

Bengal Foundation, in association with the National Crafts Council of Bangladesh, organised the festival to celebrate the proud heritage of Jamdani weaving in Bangladesh, and aiming to make Sonargaon a part of World Craft City.

Attending the closing ceremony as the chief guest, Textiles and Jute Minister Golam Dastagir Gazi (Bir Pratik) distributed certificates among the participating weavers of the festival.

Textiles and jute secretary Mohammed Belayet Hossain, National Crafts Council of Bangladesh president Rafiqul Islam, National Crafts Council of Bangladesh founder Ruby Ghuznavi, among others, were also present at the closing ceremony.

In September this year, a team of judges from the World Crafts Council visited Bangladesh and a few days ago, the organisers of the festival received an accreditation letter from the president of the World Crafts Council. The letter states Sonargaon, in Narayanganj, as the ‘Sonargaon, Bangladesh: World Crafts Council Craft City for Jamdani Weaving’, according to a press release.

The five-week event began on September 6, which was inaugurated by Education Minister Dr Dipu Moni as chief guest. Abul Hasnat, executive director of Bengal Publications, officially launched a Jamdani catalogue, while Ruby Ghuznavi, founder of the National Crafts Council of Bangladesh and Bengal Foundation chairman Abul Khair handed over the awards to five master weavers and their apprentices at the opening ceremony.
