Jamdani (Bengali: জামদানি) are among the finest muslin textiles of Bengal produced in Dhaka District, Bangladesh. Fine Dhaka jamdani is often called Dhakaiya Jamdani (Bengali: ঢাকাইয়া জামদানি).

The historic production of jamdani was patronized by imperial warrants of the Mughal emperors. It adorned royalty and nobility across Asia and the Muslim world for centuries. Under British colonialism, the Bengali jamdani and muslin industries rapidly declined due to colonial import policies favoring industrially manufactured textiles. In more recent years, the production of jamdani has witnessed a revival in Bangladesh, with jamdani saris becoming one of the most prestigious luxury fabrics of South Asia.

The traditional art of weaving jamdani has been declared by UNESCO as a masterpiece of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity.
