Ajrak, The block printed Shawls, a hallmark of Indus Civilization with special design and pattern, made through a very long process that makes it unique and keeps in long lasting.
I stumbled upon one of the Ajrak Making centers while traveling in Bhit Shah, Sindh. The town famous for its shrine of Hazrat Shah Abdul Latif Bhitai, a Muslim Sufi scholar and saint considered as one of the greatest poet of Sindhi Language.
I only got to see one of the many processes of Ajrak Making, that was Stamping of the colors, the navy blue and maroon.
I still have an intention to travel back there and capture the whole processes one single Ajrak goes through, to make it wearable.
I have seen people using it as shawls, wall hanging, on key chains, clothing, oh and I have a book mark bought from the Forum Mall Karachi that has Ajrak Art on it
It as an Art, and we all should own it as well as promote it Nationally and Internationally. It goes through too many Human Hard work.
