Know more about our cloth:
- In our cloth, dyes are naturally derived from harda, lime, alizarin, indigo, herbs, fruits, leaves, and even camel dung. The beauty of natural dyes is they only work on natural fibers and are completely bio-degradable and when the textile gets disposed of, it can be returned back to the landscape
- Ajrak Printing- The term “Ajrak”, may be derived from “Azrak”, meaning blue in Arabic, as blue happens to be the one of the principal colors in Ajrak printing. The printing is done by hand with hand carved wooden blocks. Several different blocks are used to give the characteristic repeated patterning. Hand blocking the cloth is a considerable challenge since the pattern has to synchronize perfectly with the whole of the Ajrak as well as cover various areas against dye
