Bandhani craft of Kutch, Gujarat


Bandhani artisans are from Kachchh's Khatri communities of dyers and printers. There are an estimated 15,000 women engaged in the craft, of which the majority are Muslim women living in Mandvi, Bhuj, Anjar, and Abdassa. These women work from home, tying cloth into traditional designs which are influenced by the local landscape. Artisans print the designs on paper, transfer them onto cloth, and gather and tie the designs with thread. The tied cloth is then dyed in one or more colors depending on the design.
