Organic Cotton Square Tablecloth - Ajrakh Halo


View all pieces in this print.

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

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.
