The most beautiful tradition founded back in the days of Indus Valley Civilization and dates till now into the manufacturing world, is that of the Bandhani. It is the most auspiciously worn apparel by women. 'Bandha’ which means ‘to tie’, made by the simple tie-and-dye technique and manufactured profusely in Gujarat, Rajasthan, Punjab and Sindh. “The artisans believe that no machinery ever can make something as beautiful as ‘hands in action’. Bandhani dupattas look lovely when worn with a simple salwar-suit because, obviously, the gorgeous dupatta stands out giving a boost of confidence to the woman wearing it. This hand-loom is evergreen and comes in a variety which makes it a prized-possession of every woman.
