6/100 – Mystical Ajrak in Gajji Silk

for the #desidrapesrainbow, this divine gajji silk could be equal parts madder burgundy as it is indigo as it is black but I still dream of ajrak whenever I think neel, indigo, the night sky, the stars, the universe.

A divine ajrak on gajji silk from @fabindianews, this textile indigenous to Kutch is a match made in heaven with the tediously, intensively, magically surreal process of ajrak block printing which I had the good fortune of observing and researching in Ajrakhpur once upon a time, for more on that experience refer to Ajrak Decadence in which I wear a saree sourced from the birthplace!
