Tie & Dye/Bandhej on Wool of Gujarat

Languishing Craft

Woollen shawls are also dyed according to local traditions. The designs preferred include geometrical borders, large sunburst-like dots, and motifs like the scorpion and peacock. Traditionally, unmarried girls wore black shawls with orange dots; married women wear red and black. This craft is now being practised by very few artisans.
