Ajrakh Saree, Cotton Saree With Ajrakh Border, Pallu & Blouse
The art of Ajrakh block printing belongs to Gujrat. It is a unique block printed textile with complex patterns following a detailed block printing technique. Generally, Ajrakh is printed on both sides using resist printing method by hand with hand carved wooden blocks. It’s a slow process and requires skilled artisans. The shapes and motifs of Ajrakh echo the architectural forms of Islamic architecture’s intricate jali windows and trefoil arches.
The cloth is made in a sixteen step process of washing, dyeing, printing, and drying, which requires a high level of skill and concentration in order to keep colours fast and even. Pomegranate seeds, gum, Harde powder, wood, flour of Kachika, flower of Dhavadi, alizarine and locally cultivated Indigo are just some of the natural resources that printers use in this craft.
This is a 100 % pure handcrafted cotton Saree. Designed creatively with innovative thought, the artisan has used applique work technique to make interesting patterns from printed Ajrakh fabric after dyeing the cotton base in desirable colours. These have been combined with colourful hand embroidered mirrors on the body and stitch on the pallu. The blouse pieces too have been aesthetically planned and designed with a different yet complementary pattern on it.
This Saree has a black base, red embroidery and Ajrakh is dyed in black, yellow and teel green tones. An exquisitely handcrafted piece with magical beauty, it’s a versatile drape. An ideal work wear, home wear, outing wear, casual wear, friendship wear; with such flexibility of occasions, it makes it very wearable indeed. Not only is it easy and comfortable, it’s also smart and eye-catching.
