Bandhej Saris are hand woven and brightly colored. As the name suggests, woolen threads of the palash flower (tulsi) or corals are tied in several knots to produce intricate patterns.
This traditional Rajasthani art is believed to be discovered when some shepherds used bandanas (made of colorful threads) as amulets to protect their cattle from evil eye.
These sarees are popular for everyday use and for festivals such as Navratri where one wears sindoor and a beautifully designed bajubandh with beautiful haar bracelet sets along with heavy jewelry. The weavers arrange silk thread along with the Bandhej thread in using the complex multishot design techniques.
