Beautiful natural dyes – hand block printed Ajrakh cotton shawl.
In hand bock printing, the back does not get the color as can be seen in the last picture.
This type of geometric Ajrakh printing, done in several colors without errors of registration, is carried out only in a few villages in the Kutch Sindh areas of both India and Pakistan.
The base material is the superlative Indian cotton.
