A type of block-printed fabric, Ajrak is usually found in Kutch (Gujarat) and Barmer (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 geometric patterns and natural texture.
