Different forms of Bandhej: Around the world
The roots of bandhani tie and dye can be traced back to 4,000 BC. The pieces of bandhani fabrics were found at the remnants of Indus Valley Civilisation and in Ajanta Caves depicting the life of Buddha in its most prevalent dotted pattern. In Japan, similar tying and dyeing are called shibori. It is mudmee and tritikare in Thailand and Malay, respectively. In India, bandhani is known as bandhej, piliya, chungidi, patori, ghar chola and khombi in different regions and states where it is done extensively. In Gujarat, the tie and dye work is done in Saurashtra by the Khatri community.
Similarly, in Rajasthan, it is a household name and is fondly called bandhej. In Rajasthan and Gujarat, tying and dyeing is a family business, and family members are deeply invested in their ancestral profession. Here, bandhani is a means of employment and prosperity. Its different colours have unique meanings and are used to denote one’s status in society. However, not so long ago, Bandhani was considered to be the women’s pastime within the boundaries of home. Since women weren’t allowed to step outside their homes, they would stay back and dye their clothes using threads and natural colours.
Fast-forward to today, the detail and skill-intensive process of tying are done by women in the family. In contrast, the men of the household are involved in labour-intensive work of dyeing, re-tying and re-dyeing of the fabric.
Even today, bandhani is dyed using natural colours and done manually.
