Handcrafted Ajrak Silk and Cotton Saree with Block Print

Care instructions: Dry clean only

Ajrak silk and cotton sarees block printed by the Khatri families of Bhujodi. Ajrak is an ancient and unique form of block printed shawls and tiles found in Sindh which display geometric designs and patterns made using block printing by stamps. Different and distinct blocks are used for men, women, children, young girls, an engaged woman, a married woman and a widowed woman. These garments are popularly dyed blue for keeping cool in summers and red for keeping warm in winters. Interestingly, this craft tradition is one which brings together contributions from the entire community. Traditionally, the dalits are the vankars / weavers, the khatris are they chaps / block printers, and similarly the honey, wood, gum arabic, indigo, fruits and herbs are brought in by different members of the community to be able to create this product.
