Derived from the Sanskrit word ‘bandha’, this is a form of tie and dye, which is mainly found in Rajasthan and Gujarat. It involves tying and dyeing of pieces of cotton or silk cloth. Yellow, red, green and black are the main colours that are used. The resulting patterns on the fabric are a variety of symbols including, dots, squares, waves and strips that are sometimes used to create a deliberate pattern or are just randomly placed to create a distinct all-over appearance.

Bandhej saris that are created with elaborate zari checks are also known as “garchola” saris and are the traditional wedding saris for many North and West Indian communities.
