Economy

After partition of India, many skilled weavers of Dhaka came and settled in West Bengal around Santipur in Nadia district and Ambika Kalna of Bardhaman district, both traditionally renowned centre for hand-woven fabrics. With government encouragement and support, the talented weavers soon revived their ancestral occupation and the art of exquisite weaving once again flourished. Today, finely woven feather-touch textiles and saris in exotic designs and colours are being produced in the vast weaving belt of Santipur, Phulia, Samudragarh, Dhatrigram and Ambika Kalna-each centre producing superb fabrics in its own unique weaving style. Dhatrigram produces jacquards and jamdanis while Kalna is famous for tangails and gorgeous jamdanis. Phulia and Samudragarh specialize in a combination of jacquard and jamadani work while Santipur is known for superfine dhotis and jacquards. The produce is marketed through co-operatives and various undertakings.
