Ajrak is a special block-printed textile that is resist-dyed using natural dyes including indigo. This colorful Indian robe was hand printed using carved wood blocks dipped in natural pigments. It's made from a soft, light cotton had has a detachable belt, pockets, and a beautiful block printed border.

"A 16 step process to dye the fabric and its done with all natural dyes. The blue comes from indigo leaves and the black comes from scrap iron that has been cooked over an open flame. It's a really laborious process but so worth it!"

    *Our robes are made by hand so the placement of the pattern will be slightly different on each one.
