Jamdani Saree is one of the most ancient and finest muslin textiles of Bangladesh. However, the craft of Jamdani weaving is facing threats of extinction due to various problems and obstacles compelling many weavers to leave their profession. The weavers, who play an influential role in the development of the textile sector of the country, are forced to leave their profession as they are denied the basic needs and minimum wages for a decent livelihood as a result the few who remain do not want their children to carry out the profession after them. This paper discusses the approach chosen for the benefit of the community as a whole and to create awareness towards the craft. It is a complex of functions that not only serves the weaver’s community but also allows people all over the country and the world to come and participate, observe and learn.
