Bandhini /Bandhej The term bandhani is derived from the Sanskrit root bandh ("to bind, to tie"). Today, most Bandhini making centres are situated in Gujarat, Rajasthan, Sindh, Punjab region and in Tamil Nadu where it is known as Sungudi.
The art of Bandhani is a highly skilled process and is widespread in different parts of the world, each with their own unique name, style and technique used.
The technique involves dyeing a fabric which is tied tightly with a thread at several points, thus producing a variety of patterns depending on the manner in which the cloth is tied. The fabric is then dyed and the knots opened up to reveal the marvellous creations know as Bandhani.
Most commonly used traditional motifs like Chandrakala, Bavan Baug, Shikari etc in bright colours and contrasts are praised among buyers and textile enthusiasts from all over the world.
