Ajrakh is a traditional style of block printing which uses hand-carved wooden blocks to print natural dyes on organic cotton.These Ajrakhs are made by a family that has been block printing for over nine generations - the Khatri family residing in the Kachchh desert of Gujarat, India.

The process of making an ajrakh is a long one, involving between 13 and twenty distinct steps. The many processes of scouring, washing, printing, dyeing, and final washing can take up to three weeks to complete. Much of the beauty and depth of Ajrakh cloth comes from the intricacy of the imprint that is left by the artisan’s hand. Slight variations are to be celebrated.

Care Instructions: This fabric is pre-shrunk and easy to take care of.  A gentle machine or hand wash is recommended with cool water and pH neutral bio-degradable liquid soap. Immediately either hang to dry or tumble dry on medium heat.

Note on Indigo Colour: Indigo is a friendly dye and likes to share its colour. You can expect some colour rub off with your new textiles. We recommend washing separately with cool water and a mild liquid neutral pH soap before use, and for future washing.

Note: Colours will appear different on different monitors and in different lighting conditions
