Category: Modal Silk Bandhani & Shibori Banarasi Handloom Dupatta
Add a dash of color to your ethnic look with this beautiful Handloom Banarasi Silk Dupatta made with an amalgamation of two crafts Bandhani & Shibori
Shibori is the Japanese word for a variety of ways of embellishing textiles by shaping cloth and securing it before dyeing. The word comes from the verb root shiboru, "to wring, squeeze, press." The special characteristic of shibori resist is a soft- or blurry-edged pattern. The effect is quite different from the sharp-edged resist obtained with stencil, paste, and wax. With shibori the dyer works in concert with the materials, not in an effort to overcome their limitations but to allow them full expression. And, an element of the unexpected is always present.
