Ajrak, or Ajrakh, is the name given to a particular type of block printed cotton which traditionally has a geometric design. The technique uses mud-resist printing, repeated at least twice, to produce the pattern. Prized pieces are printed on both sides, so that the pattern is exactly matched front and back to create the finest of all block prints.
The name and the technique came from the Sindh province of Pakistan, where it was highly prized as a symbol of Sindhi culture. Traditionally the colours were predominately red, blue, black and white, but other colours, especially yellow and green are now used. Stylish modern ajrak is produced in the villages of Dhamadka, Khavda and Ajrakpur near Bhuj.
