Hand Knotted Erased Ajrak Inspired 8ft X 10ft Carpet
This hand knotted carpet is inspired by the Ajrak pattern. Ajrak is a block-printed textile that is made with resist-dyeing techniques using natural dyes like indigo and madder. The term “Ajrak”, may be derived from “Azrak”, meaning blue in Arabic, as blue happens to be the one of the principal colours in Ajrak printing. It is made by Khatris community in Kutch, Gujarat and is characterised by its colour- blue with red - and its complex geometric & floral patterns. Owing to it's colour palette, Ajrak is also said to signify the Universe. Colour red for earth, black for darkness, white for clouds and blue for Universe itself.
