"Bandhani from Gujarat represents the craft of tie-dye. The bleached fabric is folded in two or four fold and the design is printed on it. A thin thread is tied on the lines of the design and the fabric is dyed. Each colour that needs to be retained in the design is tied for the successive dyeing. The dyeing process moves from lighter colour to darker colour. The tied are not removed till the buyer wishes it"
