4. Dyelogue

Bandhani, also known as tie-and-dye, is a traditional Indian craft that may be traced all the way back to the Indus Valley Civilization. Dyelogue is dedicated to revitalising and honouring this technique that is meticulously kept alive by talented artisans. This is accomplished by providing the craft with a breath of new air in the form of a contemporary design perspective.


The bandhani or bandhej method involves tying the cloth into very small knots to create elaborate designs, and then dipping the fabric into dyes. The bandhani designs that are produced are distinguished by the fact that the dyes are unable to penetrate the portions of the cloth that are knotted. Bandhani sarees and odhanis have a significant part in traditional ceremonies; in the past, they were also regarded as essential components of bridal attire.


Not only does Dyelogue collaborate with local craftsmen to develop contemporary bandhani patterns, but the brand also transforms these designs into contemporary attire that caters to the preferences of modern women. They have a variety of beautiful kaftans, draped dresses, and capes to choose from.
