The jari is ancestral Industry and no body know when first jari was manufactured and which is its birth place. from citation in Vedas, Ramayana,Mahabharat and Samhitas it can be concluded that it is an ancient industry of India and as there is no mention about it in old books of foreign countries so its birth place is also India.
It is oftenly claimed, India Learned this art of manufacturing jari from Mohamedans but it is not true as there is mention about Zari cloth in the voyage of Magasthenis and various other western literature. The origin and existence of Jari Industry dates back to ancient time but it reached it's zenith in Moghul period, it is believed.
