Ajrak is usually found in Kutch (Gujarat) and Barmer (Rajasthan). Woodbloack stamps are used to create different geometric patterns that are transferred onto the fabrics using natural dyes )vegetable and mineral). The most common colours used include blue, red, black, yellow and green.
Ajrak has been dated back to Mohenjo-Daro, where the kings and royals have been shown to be wearing similar prints to those observed in modern day Ajrak patterns. The beauty of Ajrak is in its simplistic, yet elegant patterns and natural texture.
Note: There may be some irregularities in the prints but that is the beauty of hand block print fabrics. **Colours may vary slightly due to a difference in fabric and digital colours.
Wash instructions: Handicraft fabrics tend to bleed in the initial washes due to the presence of natural dyes. Please do not soak them in water, as that can lead to the overlapping of colours. Wash and dry them in shade. First wash dry cleaning is recommended as that is known to strengthen the colours leading to less bleeding further on.
Disclaimer: This fabric is handblock print but not handloom. Powerloom fabric has been used to get the block prints done with natural dyes.
