Bandhani is a tie-dyeing technique practiced mainly in western India. Intricate patterns are created by wrapping the fabric with string before dyeing it. When the fabric is untied, natural patterns appear in the places where the string prevented the dye from taking hold. Bandhani cloth is often used for women’s shawls, but here the technique is adapted for a silky collection of travel-ready garments. Made of a black knit viscose rayon, these pieces drape beautifully. Sleeveless dress is 52" long from the center back. Toss our Black Bandhani Jacket in your tote bag for a perfectly coordinated extra layer in cooler weather.
Made in Jaipur, India. 100% viscose rayon. Women’s sizes S (4–6), M (8–10), L (12–14), XL (16–18).
I purchased all of the pieces offered in this collection and I couldn't be more pleased with all of them. They will be a great addition to my travel clothes as I will be able mix and match the pieces according to the look I want!
