Have a good read below!!

It is apparent that bandhani sarees have their origination from the regions of Rajasthan and Gujarat. But there are some other parts of India also who manufacture the Bandhani work.

  • The North Bandhani: The northern state of Punjab and the heart of India, Madhya Pradesh also produce the Bandhani art form. The design patterns from these places can be noticed prominently as they will be bigger and thicker. The methods of tying are very different and they use pebbles, coins, and kidney beans to make the patterns.

 

  • The Sindhi Bandhani: The region of Sindh, now known to be in Pakistan, develops the rough variety of Bandhani which is also very popular. The variety was recognized by the Khatri communities who were from Kutch, Gujarat and migrated to Karachi, Pakistan. Thus, Kutch’s block printing technique is associated culturally with the Sindhi Bandhani.

 

  • The Sungudi Bandhani: Another deviation of this art makes its way towards South India. The regions of Madurai and Chinnalapatti hold the Bandhani variety called Sungudi. This variety was brought up by the Sourashtrian Gujaratis centuries ago. This kind of bandhani also incorporates the typical motif of “Dots” dyed on the cotton fabrics. These are some of the interesting designs you can look out while glancing through the Bandhani saree.

 

  • The Borjaal Bandhani: More variations of Bandhani designs to be checked out such as the Borjaal pattern which contains fuller and intricate designs like a spider web. This kind of motif is very popular among the Marwari community. It contains vibrant play of colors and dots creating the beautiful criss-cross pattern. This tie-dyeing design is done on georgette fabrics.

  • The Jhankaar Bandhani: The Jhankaar Bandhani is another variation of intricate and colorful designs. This style can be identified as they don’t have the white colored dots that are present in other styles of Bandhani. For instance, a red colored bandhani saree will have yellow or green dots.

 

  • The Color Discharge Bandhani: The color discharge technique of bandhani is one more design style in which the base is darker and the patterns are of lighter shades. This is the reverse version of the usual tie-dye technique where the darker colors are used on lighter base.

 

  • The Gaji Silk Bandhani: This kind of Bandhani saree is closely related to wedding attires. The silk fabric is fortified with cotton and poly fibers as the silk alone lacks the tensile strength to go through the tie-dye process. The Gaji silk is a poly-silk blend and has a thicker, smooth and lustrous feel. The traditional Ghagra Choli and wedding lehenga choli is also crafted in this silk. Bandhani sarees can be looked out in georgettes, cotton, art-silks, silk-cotton blends, and viscose.

With the above, information about the beautiful variations of bandhej saree, I hope you will pick out your favorite yard precisely and carry this regal drape gracefully for your special occasion.
