Beautiful pure silk scarf made using the bandhani tye dye technique.

This is one of a collection of scarves commissioned to be made by a group of women artisans in a village outside Kolkata. Bandhej, as it is known, is a form of tye dye where a grain of rice is wrapped in the silk with a thread that is wound around it multiple times to create a resist to the dye. This is done in a pattern over the whole scarf and then dyed. They then unwind the threads after drying. This is a very labour intensive and skilled craft lovingly made especially for  The House of Eunice.
