Bandhani or Bandhej is a traditional Gujarati and Rajasthani print that you can find on a woman’s saree, dupatta or a lehenga choli. It is also famous in Rajasthan as a print for a Pagdi or a Safa.

The most common colours in a bandhani print are blue, yellow, red and green. Fabrics like silk, cotton, chiffon, georgette and others are used for a Bandhej print. Lauded for its beauty, it is a tie and dye print, which is very difficult to master. First, you have to make the patterns on a fabric and then change the fabric to the colour of your choice.

A bandhani dupatta is the fusion of traditional artisanship and modern thoughts. It is the perfect item to gift to your guests who are attending your wedding. You can welcome your guests by giving them a bandhani dupatta by tying it around their necks. It is unisex so you can give it to your male and female guests with no worries.

The dupatta is so colourful and distinctive looking; everyone’s outfit will compliment each other’s and spread a positive vibe all around the wedding venue. Your guests will feel valued as everyone is being welcomed personally and you can get the photographer to click everyone’s picture in the bandhani dupatta.

We have chosen some bandhani dupatta options in different colours and designs, which you can gift to all your guests. Some of them are from designers like Sabyasachi and Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla while others are from real life weddings in which the brides themselves are wearing a bandhani dupatta! Start scrolling!

A. Inspiration from designers

Designer Sabyasachi has always worked towards promoting Indian craftsmanship, fabrics and techniques in the country and even all over the world. He has bought fabrics like khadi back in trend and encouraged their use in the fashion industry. Bandhani is also a print that has Sabya’s support and he has an entire line of designer bandhani dupattas. Check them out.

1. Black dupatta

We feel that black is the colour of the decade. It may not feel appropriate in a wedding, but we assure you your guests will make the most use out of it. The ladies can pair it with any simple kurta after the wedding. It will also look good with any light coloured Sherwani that the men are wearing.

2. Mehndi green dupatta

This bandhani dupatta is giving us major traditional dupatta goals. Anyone can style it with a red or black dress and be ready for a Mehndi function. The aunties will love to receive such an old colour, as they can reminisce over the memories of their own Mehndi ceremonies.

3. Green and pink dupatta

Our personal favourite is the green and pink bandhani dupatta with the golden border. This green colour will compliment every outfit, irrespective of the colours that your guests are wearing!

B. Inspiration from real brides

Bandhani dupattas are so famous in Gujarat and Rajasthan that even traditional brides from these regions wear it as a part of their wedding outfit. For a bride to do something like this means that it obviously holds cultural value. One can look at upgraded versions of the dupatta as it has to be beautiful in order to truly match their bridal lehengas.

1. Red dupatta with borders

Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla

Isha Ambani is India’s richest daughter - her parents being Mukesh Ambani and Nita Ambani! She got married in 2018 and it was the grandest wedding ever. To stay true to her Gujarati roots, Isha wore a bandhani dupatta over her Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla lehenga.

The all red dupatta with a thick border is beautiful and completes her bridal look. Your guests will love to receive something similar.

2. Simple Red dupatta

This simple red bandhani dupatta is being worn by a bride at her Gujarati wedding and we love how she kept her entire look simple. The dupatta adds more character to her whole look and every girl or woman who receives the dupatta can style her outfit in the same way.

This Pakistani bride looks ethereal in her green wedding outfit with a matching green and red bandhani dupatta. It matches the skirt of her lehenga and the golden patches on the dupatta give it an additional element.

By pairing a Bandhej dupatta with your look, you can ensure that you not only rock a traditional vibe, but also wear something that is quite unique. Not many women have this in their arsenal and you can create an iconic look with a single heavy dupatta.
