We are all aware that Indian art does not require
any canvas or paint to display its charm and beauty. The colours which are
required for dyeing the fabrics, the artisans use those colours which are
available in abundance in the nature from vegetables, flowers, fruits and
leaves or even some times from a few stones. One of the most ancient art
practised in India is the tie and dye technique of Bandhej Silk Sarees from Gujarat and
Rajasthan. Bandhani Sarees were made
in places in Rajasthan like Udaipur, Bikaner, Jaipur, Bhilwara and Ajmer and
Jamnagar in Gujarat and hence the name Jaipuri Bandhej Sarees. These Saris are
considered to be one of the most exquisite and royal sarees, and the art of
making Bandhej Sarees flourished
even duringh the era of Alexander the Great. The Bandhej Silk Saree was considered to be a staple wear in royal
weddings and this has been mentioned in Banabhatta's book Harshacharita.
The word bandhani or bandhej has been
borrowed from the Sanskrit term 'bandhan' which means to tie. The Bandhej Silk Sarees History is just as
interesting as the way of making them. The production of Handwoven Bandhej Silk Sarees was pioneered by the Muslim Khatri community residing in Gujarat
which was about 5000 years ago and then slowly
spread to parts of Rajasthan and other parts of India. Handicraft Jaipuri Bandhej Sarees Online are
centuries old and and these sarees were believed to be auspicious in a marriage
ceremony because such Sarees are
supposed to foster a bright future for the brides. Different kinds of
communities in Rajasthan have followed the tradition since ages, of tying
turbans which have various patterns of bandhani designs on their heads. These
bandhani turbans were used to recognize which specific community the person
belongs to. Other than turbans, many apparels such as odhnis and sarees have
been made bearing Bandhani Designs.
In the bygone days, the colouring dyes were not artificially made but were,
extracted from the roots, flowers, and leaves of plants and berries.

time with Bandhej Sarees Online Shopping.
The steps involved in making The Sari are
made by taking a plain fabric for the saree and dyeing it and then tie the
whole saree into tiny knots with the help of strings or plastic cups throughout
the length. The Saree is then dipped
into the chosen dye. Most of the times, multiple shades are preferred in Jaipuri Bandhej Sarees. The fabric is
then treated and when it the saree is dry, the knots are opened revealing a
beautiful pattern which make the Bandhej Silk Saree appear unique and enhances its appeal.
The silk fabric which is to be dyed is first
outlined using colours which are transient. After placing a transparent plastic
sheet having pin holes over the area of the fabric on which it has been spread,
the colours used transfer an impression of the chosen pattern onto the fabric.
The Bandhani Saree Weavers then pull
on a very small part of the fabric where an impression of a hole is made and a
thread is wound tightly around the pulled cloth to form knots or bhindis. After
tying the bandhani knots the Silk fabric
is completely washed to remove the impressions. The cloth is then rinsed
thoroughly, then dried and again dyed for a darker colour. The fabric is then
left for three to four hours to soak the colour. All along the process, the
knot which is tied acts as a resistant for the dye. The tied part remains
undyed. After the cloth is completely dyed and washed, the fabric is sometimes
starched. The dried fabric is the pulled in a way such that the strings open
the knots in revealing the pattern as we go. The resultant fabric is a
beautiful Bandhani Saree Design with
different coloured dots forming a pattern.
