Details

Bandhani is a tie-dyeing technique practiced mainly in western India. Intricate patterns are created by wrapping the fabric with string before dyeing it. When the fabric is untied, natural patterns appear in the places where the string prevented the dye from taking hold. Bandhani cloth is often used for women's shawls, but here the technique is adapted for a silky top. Made of a black viscose rayon knit, the top drapes beautifully and features three-quarter length sleeves.

"Addition to my collection of Bandani clothing"

I was so glad to see they are still producing the shirt. Ive been traveling with the Jacket, Pants, and Dress for many years. They pack perfectly and the colors remain as bright as the day purchased.

"Very nice to look at"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This is a nice top. It runs small. The pattern is on the back, which is nice. I am a bit afraid to clean it. If it shrinks, it will be too small.

"my new favorite bag"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

this handbag is gorgeous. The tartan wool plaid, leather trim, zippers, everything about it displays quality workmanship. Where the wool meets on the sides, the plaid is matched to create a seamless look. The lining is a beautiful deep red cloth. If you need a new bag for Fall into Winter, this bag is perfect.

"Wonderful cardigan"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

My wife was vary happy when she received the cardigan. When I had told her it was handmade. She couldnt believe the quality craftsmanship and care that went into making this beautiful cardigan. All of the cardigan that she has bought are manufactured, non are as superior in quality as this cardigan. Wife is happy and that makes me happy.

"Cool top"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This is a cool top. Soft fabric that doesnt wrinkle. Only thing is, the colors are nothing like the picture. It is a darkish blue top (almost black or purple) the distinct block colors in the photo dont really show up in the real top. I still like to wear it though. Pretty in its own way.

Best Uses

  • Great with capri pants or a skirt
