Jamawar & Tanchoi are satin weave techniques where the motifs are created using the primary weft itself creating an inlaid look, unlike a brocade, which uses supplementary warp or weft to create the motifs.
In industry jargon, we use the term Jamawar when the motifs feature more than one color, while Tanchois usually feature single color motifs.
Often the patterns and colors in a Jamawar are more subtle and create an old-world-charm. Predominantly a silk-only weave, we sometimes also throw in some zari in the body or borders to create cross-over fabric that offer the best of both Jamawar and Brocade weaves in the same product.

I chanced upon Holy Weaves, and i am so glad for this happy accident. I received a gorgeous saree that was exactly as per the pictures. It was elegant, well-crafted, and great quality. The design of the sarees at HolyWeaves are also quite unique and different from those on other websites. Besides, the costing is better than other sites. I look forward to picking up more sarees from Holy Weaves in future.

Excellent Quality and Service
The Banarasi saree I ordered turned out exactly as shown. The silk/material is of good quality. I asked for tassels and they were incorporated beautifully into the pallu. The order was shipped promptly and the packing was excellent.
