Shawls - Silk Habotai 10mm Weight - Hand-tied Bandhani (6 pack)

$360.00 $216.00

Pack of 6. This 100% silk shawl has been hand-tied by master bandhani artisans in the Kutch Desert of India. The ties act as a resist which creates an extraordinary texture when left to dry before removing the ties.

Size: approx. 112cm x 216cm (44" x 85")

Also available individually.


Work in traditional styles (Indian, Japanese, African or Indonesian) or dye it your own way. Any silk dyes can be used: natural dyes, fiber reactive dyes, acid dyes, or vat dyes. Work gently - the ties form the resist.  Once dyed, the shawl will need to be processed using the recommended method (check our dye instructions for details).


The shawl can be gently rinsed and laid flat to dry. In order to retain the distinctive bandhani shape, allow the shawl to dry completely before carefully removing the ties. Avoid using scissors or a seam ripper - rather, pinch the top and pull the threads off by hand. To keep this shape, the shawl must be dry cleaned.
