These fresh prints beautifully done in natural dyeing colours will not only add bliss to your outfit but would also help you ditch synthetic colours and reconcile with the environment. The glory of this ancient Sindhi art rests in the highly contrasting hues and an enchanting fusion of the Mughal inspired nakshatras and floral patterns.

If you relate yourself to power and strength the shades of crimson red will add panache to your daily wear. The hues of indigo blue signifying trust and tranquility balance the design and represent a fascinating combination of inner and outer human peculiarities. 

A Reminiscence of the Mughal Era & Sindhi Heritage

Inspired by the Mughal and Sindhi culture, Ajrak designs are a magnificent depiction of age-old Indian heritage and culture. The designs are mostly immersed in hues of indigo (indigo blue) and madder (crimson red), with extremely polarized outline patterns. The highly contrasting hues of black and white reveal a sense of detailing in every motif designed.

Ajrak is unique in its own way! The prints are dappled with a fusion of sky elements and nature, ruled by dense patterns and no continual extensions, and hence can stick out a mile from a fabric collective.
