This block-printed, naturally-dyed cotton wrap can be worn as a scarf or shawl. There isn’t a more versatile wrap for the monochromatic wardrobe, especially for travel. Take one or two on your travels to turn plain into spectacular.
Ajrakh is a form of traditional hand-block printing and resist dyeing using natural dyes and printed mordants. They are easily identifiable by their bold geometric repeats in combination of a central pattern field and border designs. Alignment of these symmetrical designs requires a masterful printer. Matching blue tassels grace the end of this scarf.
The award-winning family of Khatri Abdul Jabbar Mohammad, tenth-generation block printers in Kutch, Gujarat, India, preserves this most-complex tradition of textile products.
