Handwoven Organic Cotton, Tie & dye, Rai Bandhani Saree
The Collection: Bandhani By Ethicus
The Story Behind the Saree:
Bandhani is one of the oldest known methods of tie & dye. The finest Bandhani is exclusively carried out by the Khatri community of Kutch in Western India.
The women pinch exceedingly small portions of cloth and tye them with the help of their fingernails or a metal pin, into many tiny bindings that form a figurative design or an intricate pattern of dots. The men dye the fabrics to form bright and beautiful colors.
Considered to be very auspicious, it was originally made exclusively in Cotton. It is the bridal saree of many communities of Kutch.
Each tied dot is compared to an individual mustard seed called ‘Rai’ in the local language. The finer the Bandhani, the more expensive the fabric is.
Handwoven in the finest of Organic Cotton by weavers at the Ethicus Studio & tied & dyed by the artisans at Sidr Craft in Bhuj, India, Bandhani by Ethicus, is a more contemporary version of a traditional design.
