Emerald Green Silk Bandhni Scarf
Bandhni, the intricate craft of Indian tie-dye. Each little dot is a hand-tied knot. The 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!
Our Bandhni scarves are made in the town of Porbandar (Ghandi's birthplace) in Gujarat, on the Arabian Sea. Scarves measure approximately 54" x 10" We buy them from the same Bandhniwallah family whose family has been in this business since 1874 - over 125 years! Care: Dry Clean Only
