Indian artisan, Abdul Aziz Khatri, shows off his mastery of bandhani, a resist-dye technique, in this sumptuous silk scarf.
This very textural scarf uses a multi-kanda pattern which is achieved by multiple tying and dyeing. The background color is royal blue, the patterning is cream with red tips, and it’s finished off with red-tipped edges.
Abdul Aziz Khatri learned the art of bandhani from his family, the traditional patterns from his mother and grandmother, and dyeing techniques from his father. In 2005, Aziz expanded his proficiency by studying at Kala Raksha Vidhylaya, a design school in Kutch, India.
