Dhampus: Dhaka cloth

Although it is eastern Nepal that is most associated with the weaving of dhaka cloth, I encountered a woman weaving it at Dhampus in the Annapurnas.

Her husband had enough English to tell me that this pattern in greens represented the Shiva lingam.

    • Hi Ajay, The last time I purchased Dhaka cloth was in Patan (Kathmandu) in 2008. If you ask around in Kathmandu, I’m sure someone can provide more up-to-date information. I do not sell Dhaka cloth
