Ajrakh Stoles and Dupattas

Ajrakh is a unique form of blockprinting, also called woodblock printing in which prints are transferred from geometric shapes etched on the wooden blocks by pressing them hard on the fabric. This type of block printing has been used in the Indian subcontinent right from the days of Indus civilization. This technique of fabric printing still prevails centuries later and Ajrakhs are made all over in Kutch, Gujarat and Barmer, Rajasthan in India.
From the skilled craftsmen of Kutch, we bring to you handwoven Ajrakh ekpuri Stoles and Dupattas. The stoles are 74 inches long and 21 inches wide. These can also be used as short dupattas. The Ajrakh dupattas are almost 2.5 meters (95 inches long and 34 inches wide) and can be substituted for a shawl too. The feel of the cloth is so good that one can get a kurti stitched out of the same. Embrace warmth, shop for Ajrakh stoles and dupattas.
Ajrakh craft products are made with natural dyes. The entire production of the products include both vegetable dyes and mineral dyes. The Ajrakh makers believe that the printed fabric has warm and cool colours which steady the body temperature.
It takes skill & patience to make Ajrakh. Ajrakh is printed as single sided (ekpuri) and double sided (bipuri). There are between 14-23 different stages of dyeing & printing, which take 14-21 days to complete. The resist and some colours are printed on the cloth using carved wooden blocks. These blocks are carved with intricate symmetrical patterns so that the same block can be used for both sides of the cloth.
