Ajrakh is usually found in Kutch in Gujarat and Barmer in Rajasthan. Woodblock stamps are used to create different geometric patterns that are transferred onto the fabric using natural dyes, including vegetable and mineral dyes. The most common colours used include blue, red, black, yellow and green. One of the most common dyes used for this type of printing is indigo. Ajrak has been dated back to Mohenjo-daro, where the kings and royals have been shown wearing similar prints to those observed in ajrak patterns today. The beauty of ajrak is in its simplistic yet elegant patterns and natural texture. This is handblock print fabric with natural dyes so small differences in colour and irregularities in prints are normal and the beauty of the art.
