Block Print Silk-Cotton Scarf

Designed and handcrafted by heritage artisans in India using a distinctive block print technique called Ajrakh.

Hand printed on a voile (very light weight) chanderi. Chanderi is a fine Indian silk-cotton blend. Traditional Ajrakh printing is rooted in the use of natural dyes, resists, and blocks made from wood and metal. This oversized bandana with tiled center and flower bud border is a beautiful example of the craft's connection to Islamic designs.

Each scarf bears the signature of the artisan’s handiwork. Inherent to the natural dye and handmade process are inconsistencies and variations. We ask that you view these not as imperfections, but as authentic markings of a traditional handmade process. All naturally dyed items will fade and patina over time. These are traits inherent to textiles dyed with plants and should be embraced.
