Jamnagar - Bandhani work

Someone just asked me about specialty of my place.

I named bandhani as the one.

here is a brief description of that.

Bandhani work is a kind of dyeing practiced mainly in the states of Gujarat ( some place in Rajasthan too ) , India.


Sometimes, it is also referred as Bandhani art or Bandhani art work. The term "bandhani" derives its name from a Hindi word Bandhan which means Bond / or tying up.

Bandhani work involves tying and dyeing of pieces of cotton or silk cloth. No artificial cloths / fabric is used tin Bandhani. The main colours used in Bandhani are yellow, red, green and black. Bandhani work, after the processing is over, results into a variety of symbols including, dots, squares, waves and strips. Jamnagar , a prime city in Gujarat (India) is very famous for bandhani work, infact even today also bandhani is printed using ancient block printing and hand made colors in Jamnagar ,
