This is a a type of Indian scarf made with a specific skill. It is not a batik scarf as you find in Bali using dye resist. It's an Indian bandhani scarf using the intricate craft of Indian tie-dye. Known as tie and dye in India, each little dot is a hand-tied knot. The silk georgette fabric is pinched between fingernails and swiftly tied and knotted with string. After the entire piece is dyed, the string bundles are removed by two people tugging at opposite corners of the cloth with their full body weight!
These exquisite Bandhani scarves are made in the town of Porbandar, in Gujerat, on the Arabian Sea. They are purchased from the same Bandhniwallah who has supplied Indika for over 50 years. The Bandhniwallah's family has been in this business since 1874 - over 125 years! So great to be able to offer silk bandhani online. Such light, feminine pretty scarves.
Size varies a bit from scarf-to-scarf, but each silk bandhani scarf measures approximately 68 inches long not stretched and 21-1/2 inches wide.
These beautiful scarves come in jewel tone colors so you can choose between a green silk scarf, a blue silk scarf, or a turquoise scarf or fuschia scarf. Hmmm, maybe that's fuchsia!
