Traditional Jamdani (Bengali: জামদানি) is one of the finest muslin textiles of Bengal, produced in Dhaka District, Bangladesh for centuries. The historic production of jamdani was patronized by imperial warrants of the Mughal emperors.

In more recent years, the production of jamdani has witnessed a revival. The traditional art of weaving jamdani has been declared by UNESCO as a Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity.
