The word Bandhani comes from the Sanskrit Word “Bandhna” or “Bandha” which literally means to tie. The technique to make Bandhani Saree is a very ancient art. The first traces of Bandhani clothes date back to the era of Indus Valley Civilization at around 4000 B.C. The Buddhist paintings in the Ajanta Caves dated around 6th Century also have the references of Bandhani Clothing.
Thus Bandhani fabrics are actually age old fabrics which have been around for thousands and thousands of years.
Bandhani Sarees are made from Indian hand done textiles crafts which are generally carried out by skilled Bandhani artisans who are involved in this traditional craft for years and years. It usually takes about 6 months to one year time for making a traditional and ethnic Bandhani Saree.
Though, making a Bandhani Saree is highly time consuming and requires traditional techniques, it is majorily popular among the Indian women because of its rich flavour of traditional elegance and along with the essence of the folk Culture of Rajhsthan and Gujarat.
