Details

It can take up to three weeks to complete the laborious handmade process of ajrak textile printing. Dozens of hand-carved blocks are used to stamp a resist paste onto the cloth, which is then dyed and laid in the sun to dry. The longer the dye sets, the more vibrant the color. Then the cloth is washed to remove the resist, and the process begins again with a different block pattern. All told it can take 30 separate steps to achieve the intricate floral and geometric patterns for which ajrak is known. The traditional color palette of crimson red, indigo blue, and white on this all-cotton duvet cover is said to represent the universe: red for the earth, white for clouds, and blue for the sky, the universe itself. Two matching pillow shams complete the set.

"Beautiful pillow covers"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I fell in love with these pillow covers when I saw them and I love them even more in person! I use them on my couch and I have many green hues in the room which these fit right into! They are the perfect size, not too big and brighten the couch up wonderfully. They are made with quality material and will stand up a long time to wear
