Abstract: Indian Bandhani, a traditional form of tie and dye, began about 5000 yrs ago. Also known as Bandhni and Bandhej, it is the oldest tie and dye tradition still in practice. The craft is still thriving with Gujarat and Rajasthan as chief production centers. This paper is an outcome of a diagnostic study of the Bandhej craft in Sikar city of Rajasthan. The objective of the study was to portray the present scenario of Bandhej craft and to record the changes that have occurred with the spinning wheel of time in the techniques, patterns of designs and the motifs.
