Collection: The Art of Ajrakh

Ajrakh is a traditional form of hand block printing dating back 3000 years currently practiced in the village of Ajrakhpur in the remote Kutchi desert of Gujarat, Western India. Our ajrakh fabrics this season were made by artisan printer Afzel Khatri.

Printing ajrakh is quite a laborious process. Each different colour on the cloth must have its own block and left to dry for a day before the next colour can be layered on. The word “Ajrakh” actually comes from the term “Aaj ke din rakh” or “keep it for the day!” until the colour fastens. Slow down and have patience, reflect and be mindful of the work. This philosophy combined with Ajrakh’s brilliant hues and handfeel, are why we love this technique.
