Go wild when it comes to dressing for the special spring festivities next year, wearing the bandhni or the bandhej sarees, should you not opt for other famous types such as the kota silk, leheriyas, sanganeer block prints too.
Kota doria too is a famous sari type in rajasthan, and much a competitor to the bandhej clan. This is because just as the bandhej is hand designed, the kota doria sarees are hand-woven with characteristic squares and checks for patterns.
What We Love About The Bandhej Look
The bandhej look has motifs in tie and dye. The patterns emulate flora and fauna, bells, jaals, creepers and mythological scenes too. Each dot and knot on the bandhej saree has a name for it, for example the ekdali, or one knot! The three knotted dotted bandhej sari is called the trikunti and the four knotted ones would be the chaubundi.
