  • The history of Uppada fabric can be traced back to the Jamdani weaving technique.
  • Jamdani Weaving technique was introduced 300 years ago having a rich heritage.
  • This weaving method was patronized in history by the Kings of Pithapuram and Bobbili. 
  • After the decline of the fashion industry in England due to the industrial revolution during the 19th Century, Jamdani observed a slow revival during the 20th Century. 
  •  Later the technique was introduced in 1989 in Uppada which was led by a revivalist.
  • Such activity led to the beginning of new designs, however, it still took many years to get recognition.
