Hand Printed Satin Scarf - Red, Blue & Ivory
A red and blue soft satin scarf with an Ajrakh print on an ivory background.

Ajrakh is an ancient printing technique found in the desert regions of Gujarat and Sind (in India and Pakistan). 5000 year old remnants of Ajrakh printed cotton have been found near Harappa in the ancient Indus valley civilisation in present day Sind.
These scarves are made by a co-operative in the Indian town of Barmer, near the border with Sind, using traditional carved wooden printing blocks.
