At Varana, bespoke textiles are our calling card. The pattern of this lovely fabric is inspired by the famed Bandhani tie-and-dye technique from India. Tiny, white circular motifs are dotted on a tonal grid to create a beautifully textured background. The high collar dips into an elegantly draped, low back that adds an unexpected glamorous twist and makes this dress a truly standout piece.

Techniques & Inspiration
‘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.
