Indian artisan, Abdul Aziz Khatri, has mastered bandhani, a resist-dye technique. This silk scarf shows off his skills in creating a unique, sculptural and sumptuous piece of wearable art.
The dimensional pattern is achieved by multiple tying and dyeing. The dyes move from charcoal to grey giving a subtle color shift depending on how you wear it. Note that the very tips of the edge are discretely dyed with the grey. An elegant finishing touch.
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.
