Details

Bandhani is a tie-dyeing technique practiced mainly in western India. Intricate patterns are created by wrapping the fabric with string before dyeing it. When the fabric is untied, natural patterns appear in the places where the string prevented the dye from taking hold. Bandhani cloth is often used for women's shawls, but here the technique is adapted for a silky top. Made of a viscose rayon knit, the top drapes beautifully and features three-quarter length sleeves.

"Addition to my collection of Bandani clothing"

I was so glad to see they are still producing the shirt. Ive been traveling with the Jacket, Pants, and Dress for many years. They pack perfectly and the colors remain as bright as the day purchased.

"Very nice to look at"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This is a nice top. It runs small. The pattern is on the back, which is nice. I am a bit afraid to clean it. If it shrinks, it will be too small.

"Beautiful and easy to wear"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I purchased both the skirt and the top. I have worn the set once. It was breathable, comfortable and did not wrinkle. And I felt at ease wearing it yet put together in a professional way. This my kind of style- artisan, bohemian and interesting to look at.

Best Uses

  • Just about anything but gardening, my favorite pasttime

"Wow! Coolest boot ever!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I love these boots! Suave, sexy, understated...a very comfortable heel and a no-nonsense sole, well lugged...could be worn with dresses or leggings. Just fabulous, and fit like they were made for me, so fairly true to size. (I ordered one half size larger than usual.) A great staple addition to your shoe wardrobe.

"My favorite winter sweater"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I bought this item more than 3 years ago. Ive worn it a lot, and it is still in perfect condition. It is gorgeous with a black dress for dressy occasions in the winter. The wool is soft, almost like baby alpaca, and the embroidery is exquisite. The cut is flattering--not too boxy and not too fitted. What else can I say? I love it!

  • cold weather occasions

"Cute AND Comfy"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I hate buying shoes online because sizing and comfort are always a crapshoot, but these were a definite win! These shoes are comfy and I emerged blister-free from walks through the woods, miles of protest marches during the fall, and standing in an unreasonably long line to get an absentee ballot during a pandemic election. Theres decent tread on the bottom, so I wouldnt be afraid to wear them on an icy walkway, though theyre obviously not going to fare well in a few inches of snow. I bought the red pair and got several compliments on them. Im planning to go back for the blues!
