Ajrakh Block Printers of Sindh

Nariyal Jaal Ajrakh Cotton Bedspread: Alizarin Red and Brown

Rs. 8,670.00

This one-of-a-kind king sized hand quilted bedspread is delightfully reversible! Both sides have coordinating Ajrakh textiles - with complimentary natural dyed colourways on the front and back. This contemporary cotton patchwork quilt or 'dhadki' is made by two communities in Kutch, western India, using traditional techniques.

Ajrakh, the sartorial identity of the Maldaris of Sindh, is block printed by the Khatris who migrated from Sindh to Gujarat 400 years ago. This laborious process takes upto sixteen steps of perfectly registered block-printing, using a set of hard carved wooden blocks. Each imprint is skillfully overlaid with fine hand carved wooden blocks.

The central block printed pattern in the front is Nariyal Jaal, a geometric pattern representing the coconut tree, a symbol of prosperity.

Each reversible quilt is unique and combines machine-pieced Ajrakh patterns, joined together by Harijan women, with traditional hand quilting, punctuated by with a diamond motif, the 'makhiyo', and finished with an embroidered edging.
