Daily Art Fix – Double Sided Ajrakh Print

No words needed! {but will say some anyway!)

The feature that makes this a masterpiece is the ‘double-sided print’. Both the front and the back have prints that are identical and matched to each other.

This amazing ‘dorukha’ feature is very rare and this is the only printed textile that I have seen of this type. (Such Batiks are made even now – but block print …?)

This type of cloth is used by the men of the Khatri community in Kutch.
