While traditionally Ajrakh was worn only by men from the pastoral community of the Kutch, today it has become a fashion statement for the affluent buyers, both men and women, looking for organic, ethical fashion. The 16-step process required to create a piece of Ajrakh fabric is what makes the outcome so beautiful and intricate.
A block-printed textile art, Ajrakh is defined by its natural earthy dyes – originally indigo blue and deep crimson red, and complex geometrical motifs which are symmetrical. “The theme is usually universal and is inferred to depict the sky, the stars, the sunset.” While the word Ajrakh is derived from ‘azrakh’ which means blue in Persian, when loosely translated into Kutchi, the expression could also mean ‘keep it today’, representing the idea of patience which is integral to this art form.
