Tree Block Print Cotton Scarf
Fashion at Its Finest
This beautiful block print cotton scarf offered by Eco Life Goods is lightweight and breathable. Crafted with Ajrakh, an ancient form of textile production in western India that goes back over four thousand years to the early civilizations. The art derives its name from the Hindi Phrase A aj ke din rakh or 'keep it for the day,' because each stage of the process involves many days. There are between 14-16 different stages of dyeing and printing, which take 14-21 days to complete.
Dr. Ismael Mohammad Khatri is widely recognized as a master of the Ajrakh block printing. As the owner of a fair trade workshop, he ensures that his employees receive fair wages and steady work. He has won the UNESCO Award of Excellence for handicrafts.
