The master artisan who made this stunning collection is the 32nd generation in this craft. It dates back to the 12th century when the Khatri community migrated to Kutchh from Sind.

‘Shibori’ is the method in which the fabric is dyed.  This Japanese dying technique starts by folding, twisting or bunching white fabric, binding it and then dying it in indigo.  Indigo is a dark blue dye which is made from the indigo plant.

‘Ajrakh’ is a block-printed textile that is resist-dyed using natural dyes. including indigo and madder. It takes skill & patience to make Ajrakh. There are between 14-16 different stages of dyeing & printing, which take 14-21 days to complete. The resulting cloth is soft against the skin and jewel-like in appearance, pleasing to touch & appealing to the eye.
