The tie & dye technique (tying & dyeing) is especially popular in India and Japan. In India it is called Bandhani and in Japan Shibori. The principle is the same: pieces of fabric are tied with a thread or stitched together. The substance is then immersed in a dye bath. When the fabric is dry, all threads are pulled apart and removed in an instant. The unpainted parts now reveal the pattern.
Tradition and market feeling

Bandhani

Bandhani is milimeter work and has been practiced in India for hundreds of years by a specific community: the Khatri. Bandhani is part of their traditional costumes that they now only wear on festive occasions. Black and red are the typical basic colors. Today they make scarves in all colors of the rainbow for the commercial market. There is also more and more experimentation with new designs and combinations of techniques.

Family tradition

These scarves are made by Alimohammed and his family in the village of Budhjodi in India. They have been doing this specific work for 7 generations. They make the dyes themselves, devise the designs themselves.
