Cherishing the understated finesse of the tie and dye technique
Approximately 5000 years ago, a new form of printing began to take shape in the Indian states of Gujarat and Rajasthan. This traditional form of printing technique was introduced by the Muslim Khatri community of Kutch, according to legends. Today, in the 21st Century world, this form of art and craft, popularly known as the tie and dye technique, is not restricted only to the Indian territory but its magic and elegance have enthralled people living across countries and continents.
To cherish the understated finesse of the tie and dye technique, the contribution of Indian designers is noteworthy. Something that took roots as a local art now binds together skilled craftsmen and established designers, just like the complex yet complete nature of honeycomb. Tie dye kurta sets, tie dye tunics, tie dye kaftans, and tie dye kurtis consummate the definition of clothing that is contemporary yet contemplating. Natasha J, Chandni Rai, Seema Nanda, Krishna Mehta, Rachana Ved, and Itara go a long way in celebrating the heritage of the tie and dye technique in traditional wear.
Speaking of western clothing, the popularity of the tie and dye technique is unadulterated. Tie dye gowns from Bloni, Malini Ramani, etc. steal the deal with the attractive artwork that transports to an era dominated by the love for colours. Same is the story with tie dye dresses from Anita Dongre Grassroot, Amrich, Integument, and Urvashi Kaur. Vibrant and traditional, the tie and dye collections from these designers stay true to their roots of rejoicing in the fine taste of dyed clothing.
Tie dye jackets have a unique attribute. Whether they’re paired with solid tunics or just added as a finishing ensemble to crop top with palazzo look, they continue to cast a lasting impression. Designers like Ilk, Rabani and Rakha, and Eclat by Prerika Jalan offer bright hues and stunning silhouettes in tie dye jackets. For adorning the gala mood, tie dye jumpsuits manage to retain the top position, thanks to their chic comfort factor. Towing close in line are tie dye pants. Versatile in nature, we admire the collections from Mandira Wirk and Aditi Somani.
Indian designers like Naina Jain bring to the table the true glory of traditional bandhani work in tie dye sarees. Her collections are no short of portraying the glamorous side of Indian traditional prints and art. Tie dye lehengas from Akanksha Gajria, Naina Jain, and Natasha J toe the line of legacy. Regal and royal, these pieces of tie dye lehengas and sarees make the ideal outfits for elite gatherings. Bringing out the essence of designs that inspire and patterns that resonate, they aptly define traditional couture.
