Description

Think princesses and nayikas, tinkering down candlelit palace halls in the wee hours of the night, in mysteriously sensuous garb akin in it’s appearance to the night sky and all of it’s stars. Keeping their trysts; as the delicate tinkling of a hundred ghungroos announces an arrival to a lover in the shadows

Ajrakh uses a natural black pigment obtained from the fermentation of iron oxide and jaggery. Six yards of a densely patterned, geometric, architectural lattice (jaali) design, which one might quite likely see on the windows and viewing galleries of ancient palaces. A fine example of the Persian influence on Ajrakh’s design vocabulary.

Handprinted on a light, soft, breezy pure cotton mul, this is a mystical spring-summer saree. Here’s how this range of sarees sound and move with their ghungroos in action, swipe through the carousel post on our Instagram feed!
