EVERGREEN BANDHANI | WEARABLE TEXTILE ART
Not only aesthetic but also easy to wear! Bandhani is popularly crafted using cotton and silks on trans-seasonal colours and free-flowing silhouettes making every piece a cherished garment for life. Traditionally Bandhani pieces were passed on from one generation to the next as heirloom pieces in the form of Saris. Now they are a lot more accessible, versatile and in silhouettes that can be worn daily, for work or for your holiday getaways.
Every Bandhani style on Nete.in is made-to-order and meticulously crafted with attention to detail. Bandhani is a slow process using an intricate form of tie-dyeing indigenous to Gujarat, Rajasthan and parts of Uttar Pradesh. The process of making Bandhani requires the fabric to be tied using impermeable thread in various designs and patterns and then dyed using beautiful solid colours. The tied part doesn’t absorb the colour and remains white or the same colour as the cloth. Every fabric has a unique nature so the effect of this art varies according to that of the fabric used. Since it’s a handmade process, variations in colour, textures and print are intrinsic to its nature and process making every garment unique, just like you. Slight differences are to be cherished.
The centuries-old craft has retained its immense popularity over the years. This timeless art form is juxtaposed with modern-day silhouettes - dresses, co-ord sets, jumpsuits, jackets, pants and shorts; using comfortable cotton, luxurious silks and even cloud-like organza. The same can be found in gender fluid silhouettes.
You can also explore home accents in Bandhani that make for thoughtful housewarming gifts.
