Made with a complex and one of the oldest techniques of block-printing and dyeing called Ajrakh, this piece showcases the best of craftsmanship and heritage. Believed to be one of the oldest techniques of printing textiles, the craft is indigenous to India. Tracing its origin back to more than 4000 years, the craft is still practiced by the local communities in a tiny village called Ajrakhpur. It is a complicated form of block-printing and involves as many as 14 steps. A lot of effort has been made in the recent years to revive this dyeing craft and today it finds its way to the various international museums like Victoria and Albert museum in London and the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.
Handcrafted and block-printed in a small village situated in the Kutch region of India, this silk scarf embraces traditional craftsmanship and heritage with a modern everyday look. Hand-dyed with the prized natural indigo and madder, it is also block-printed and hand brushed on both sides.
