Rosewood Ajrakh Khadi Print Dress


This flared dress is crafted using Ajrakh printed yoke adorned with Kantha stitch and Khadi print on the border of the skirt.

This dress has functional buttons at the bodice and has 3/4th sleeves. The length is 36 inches.

The fabric used to craft this dress has been responsibly sourced from Gujarat, India. Ajrakh printing is a long process involving many stages of printing and washing the fabric over and over again with various natural dyes and mordants. Unlike other processes of printing on cloth, where the color is applied directly to the cloth, in Ajrakh block printing, the fabric is first printed with a resist paste and then dyed. The process is repeated again and again with different kinds of dyes, to eventually achieve the final pattern in the deep red and blue hues. This gradual process is also very time consuming, as the longer an artisan waits before beginning the next step, the more vivid the final print becomes.

Please note: The fabric used to create this dress is completely hand printed and some inconsistency in color and print may occur. We attribute this to the beauty of hand printing which lends to the exclusivity of the product.
