  • Involves tying fabric with threads before dyeing creating colorful resist patterns
  • Traditionally done on cotton but we experiment with silks like georgette as well
  • Intricate patterns like buttis, paisleys, floral are carved through specialized tying techniques
  • Each saree is uniquely handcrafted and takes months to create
  • Now preserved through Banarasi weavers who adapted this age-old resist-dye skill
