Ajrakh printing is a form of traditional printing on fabric using stamps native to Sindh, Pakistan, Rajasthan, Gujarat and Kutch in India. There are many fascinating stories with respect to its origins, but many believe that the name could be a derivative of the Sanskrit word ‘Ajharat’ meaning ‘that which does not fade’ or the Arabic word ‘azrak’ meaning blue. Primary colours used in this form of printing include blue, red, black, green and yellow. The prints include a lot of geometry which is created with the help of carved wooden blocks that have the designs etched on them. Ajrakh products are primarily made using natural dyes with Indigo being a key dye in this art form.
