‘Bandhani' is a form of fine tie-and-dye that originated centuries ago in the Kutch desert in India and is still practiced by artisanal communities in the region. The term Bandhani is derived from the Sanskrit word ‘bandhan’ or ‘tie’.
Craftswomen, working from their homes, painstakingly tie small knots in fabric. The tied fabric resists the dye and the result is intricate, circular patterns, the exact form of which depends on how the tying was done.
We have taken inspiration from this technique and created bespoke heavy silk jacquards, woven with the tiny, circular motifs characteristic of the traditional Bandhani process.
