A book on the complex process of Ajrakh using natural dyes. The ajrakh textiles derive their name from the Arabic word azrak, meaning blue. The richly painted surface of ajrakh fabrics is achieved through a highly evolved process of scouring, mordanting, printing, lime resist printing, multiple layers of dyeing and washing.
