Ajrakh-inspired satin trousers
The pattern on these striking satin pants is based on an age-old block printing technique called 'Ajrakh', which is still practiced by artisan communities in India's Kutch desert. In keeping with our philosophy, we have reimagined the traditional motifs through a modern lens. The pants are cut straight and smart, with a front zipper opening. Pair with a contrasting camisole or dial up the drama by throwing on a matching kimono jacket.
Model is 5 feet 9 inches / 175 cm and wears UK size 6
'Ajrakh' is a complex, artisanal technique of block printing and resist dyeing that dates back as early as 2000 BC. The artisan must wash the fabric between dying and wait until he can print the next colour. Many believe that the word 'Ajrakh' is actually derived from the phrase 'Aaj ke din rakh' or 'Keep it for today'; a sentiment quite opposed to today's fast-paced world.
This bespoke silk satin has been designed in Varana's own studio and woven with motifs inspired by the 'Ajrakh' technique.
