Waqar Shawl by Sidr Craft (INDIA)
A Bandhani shawl with abstract plant motifs. These flowing vegetal designs employs ‘Bharti’ technique not only in the pattern, but also to fill-in the spaces that lie outside the pattern. Natural dye color palette of Manjith and Indigo is used to create distinct spaces of color and balance.
‘Bharti’ is the most intricate of the hand tie-dye skills and has been on decline since 1970’s. Today only few artisans are left with this skill. And these designs give us a way to engage with these special skilled artisans.
