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 black 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.

This hat is warm and really pretty. A little tight on my head but I can stretch it out a bit. The colors are not as bright as in the photos - fine by me. I m now going to buy the matching gloves.
