Bandhani work in jamnagarBandhani is a unique way of coloring the cloth by tying into tiny knots that had been folded several times already. This cloth is dyed in colors several times till the desired shade of color is achieved. Bandhani work is done on fabrics like super fine cotton, muslin, and silk and mulmul cloth as well.

The bandhani work was first started by the khatri community in Gujarat some 5,000 years ago. The work is mainly done with dark colors. The main colors being used in this work include black, yellow, blue, red and green. The colors can be both natural and artificial. The end result of bandhani work turns out into symbols like dots, stripes, waves or squares. These final results are called as patori, khombhi, ghar chola and chandrokhani depending on the designs. Different colors of dye represent different occasion. A red bandhani work represents new bride. Similarly, a yellow work represents a new mother.
