The Bandhani: Tie-Dye Resist Craft
Bandhej or Bandhani, literally means a bond, and is the technique perfected by the Desert tribes of Rajasthan and Gujarat where the fabric is gathered into small, pinched-up circles, in rows and then tied tightly, with thread using a swift, circular motion till none of the pinched-up fabric is visible. These ties run along the length of the fabric and are of varied sizes. In a series of separate actions, the fabric is dyed, in a manner that allows for different and contrasting colors to be used. When the threads are removed and the fabric stretched back to normal, marvelous, colorful, patterns emerge.
