Techniques & Inspiration
'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.
