Who doesn’t love the vibrant bandhani prints from Gujarat? Remember the times when you would secretly take out that beautiful bandhani dupatta or a saree from your mother’s wardrobe and flaunt one in front of the mirror?
Well, bandhani or bandhej is a technique to tie and dye fabrics in gorgeous hues of red, green, blue and yellow to create visually appealing designs. The bandhani sarees are still worn with great pride and are passed down to several generations as heirloom treasures. With immense popularity over the years, bandhani prints have made their comeback in the form of contemporary Indian wear this year and we couldn’t be happier!
It is a timeless handcrafted piece that can be used as fusion wear with Indo-western outfits. Also, spotting them on brides is truly a feast for our eyes. Recently, we spotted some real brides together with celebs and fashion influencers who made a rocking style statement by incorporating bandhani prints. And trust us, it is gonna be one ruling trend in the upcoming wedding and festive season.
