Bavan Bagh

Meaning “fifty-two sections,” it is a traditional Gujarati design comprising an elaborate grid of squares or compartments all over the fabric, with each square containing a single motif. It is one of the main designs of the gharcholu, which is a part of the traditional bridal attire in Gujarat, made using the tie-dyed bandhani technique. In elaborate gharcholus, the squares are demarcated by woven gold brocade.
