There’s a type of tie-and-dye resist pattern in India called lehriya which means waves, and is commonly used in turban fabric. Artisan Aziz Khatri interpreted this pattern into a bandhani design for this silk scarf.
Aziz is not only a master bandhani artist, he is also a master dyer as is evident in the deep purple to lavender shading in this luscious scarf.
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. Learn more about Aziz and resist-dyeing techniques.
