Bandanna Dyeing

BANDANNA DYEING (Knot tying)
This method of dyeing yarns is a hand weaver's industry in India. The dyer takes a small bundle of warp which has been dyed in the lightest colour required in the finished piece, and draws in pencil upon it some lines at measured distances according to the design to be produced. An assistant then ties the silk along the spaces marked, tightly round with cotton thread, through which the dye will not penetrate. It is then dyed with the next darker colour found upon the warp and the process is repeated until the darkest colour is reached. The weft is next treated in the same way in order that when it crosses the warp in the loom each of its colours exactly correspond with the same colour in the warp. These small bundles of warp are then arranged in the loom and the weaver takes the bundles of weft, using each in its own place throughout the design.(see Bandhana Silks)
