Special Things About Bandhej and Bandhani

What exactly are Bandhani and Bandhej?

The Hindi and Sanskrit terms “Bandhna” and “Bandha,” which both mean “to knot,” were the source of the phrases “bandhani” and “bandhni,” respectively. Another spelling of the same word is bandhej. In essence, Bandhani refers to the ancient Indian art of “tie and dye” (a resist-dyeing method that uses impermeable threads for tying), which is used to create exquisite, beautiful patterns on cloth.

Some special technique to make

To begin with, the fabric is tied using impermeable thread in various designs and patterns and then dyed using beautiful solid colors. When the experts dye these tied fabrics, the tied part doesn’t absorb the color and remains white or the same color as the cloth. Once dried, it is left in the open air to dry. The time taken by the fabric to dye depends on the weather. During monsoons, the cloth takes up to 2 days to dry up, while in the summer season, the entire process is done in a span of 4-5 hours. Besides the weather, the fabric also plays an important role in dyeing.
