Bold, beautifully textured, naturally dyed and handprinted – the confluence of contemporary meets traditional couldn’t be more eloquently expressed on a textile yardage.
Parisienne, because this contemporary Ajrakh drape has the strikingly beautiful colours of the French flag and we imagine it worn by an elegant lady of taste with a black blouse, a red lip, pearls and a glass of red wine in hand! Hand block printed and resist dyed with traditional Ajrakh motifs – one can see the quintessential Ajrakh buta, the madhagolo arch, and quite a few more on this striking saree. This modal silk drape has rows of traditional Ajrakh buta patterning, interspersed with rows of striking, solid stripes of colour in black, madder red, white on an indigo base.
Ajrakh as a craft takes a lot of inspiration from the Universe, and the starry night sky, and this mystical drape completely recreates that vision.
Yes, an indigo patterned running blouse piece is included.
Modal Silk, a cellulose based vegetarian silk. Has a satin like surface and smooth shine.
Created by artisan designer Mr Soyab Khatri of Ajrakhpur, Kutch, India. Handprinted with traditional Ajrakh wood block printing using natural dyes.
