Bandhani Toran

Let me begin with the story of ‘’This Bandhani Toran’’ which was completely hand stitched.

I cut the desired length of cloth and fixed the backing cloth with the same material and stuffed canvas cloth between the two.  I used satin ribbons to make the hangings with the addition of threaded ball beads, mirrors, artificial gold beads,etc. I stitched some kundan stones here and there to give the glittery look !!

For the edgings to the panels I used woollen thread which I plaited and fixed them with running stitches to give the panel an elegant look.

My sister-in-law wanted to gift her brother with a toran and she bought this from me.  There ends my story of this Toran !!
