Traditional bandhani fabric survives generational changes

Bandhani is a process in which the fabric is tied or knotted at intervals before being placed in the dye. The knotted areas remain untouched by the dye and create random patterns frequently resulting in a sunburst effect.

Most of the Bandhani produced in India is made in Kutch, Saurastra and in other neighboring districts. Though simple, tie & dye is quite a time consuming and tedious process. Usually the women are involved in the fine craft of tying while the men prepare the dye.

The colors that are traditionally used in the process are vibrant with yellow, black, red and green being the predominant ones. This technique is used on lighter shades of browns, turquoise, blue and pink giving a stunning effect.
