THE STORY
The fluid narrative print of Ajrakh is eye candy for every textile lover. Inspired by the trigonometric symmetry and floral patterns in Mughal architecture, this form of block-printing was part of traditional attire for both men and women of the Sindh region. This range of Ajrakh-printed Gajji Silk dupattas by Jaypore celebrates this craft and its glorious history among the textiles of Kutch.

The printing process is a test of the artists patience with as many as 16 different steps, which may explain the name of the art. Ajrakh is said to take it’s name from the hindi words, “Aaj Rakh” which means “leave it today”, perhaps signifying the patience required to execute this elaborate and extensively detailed process.
