Black Bandhani Shell
(Based on 2 reviews)
Category: Clothing/Women's Clothing/Shirts

Textile arts flourish in the rural villages of western India’s Thar Desert: Wide swaths of hand-block-printed fabrics are laid in the sun to dry. Women in Rajasthan create multicolored fabric mosaics using embroidery and appliqué. And artisans throughout the desert region practice bandhani, a deceptively simple tie-dyeing technique. Intricate patterns are created by wrapping the fabric with string before dyeing it. Bandhani cloth is often used for women’s shawls, but here the technique is adapted for a silky collection of travel-ready garments that drape beautifully and multiply your travel wardrobe.
