Ajrak

Posted on Posted in Handicrafts of Pakistan

Ajrak (Sindhi: اجرڪ) is a name given to a unique form of block printed shawls and tiles found in Sindh, Pakistan. Ajraks are also worn by the Saraiki people of Southern Punjab and Kutch. These shawls display special designs and patterns made using block printing by stamps. Common colours used while making these patterns may include but are not limited to blue, red, black, yellow and green. Over the years, ajraks have become a symbol of the Sindhi culture and traditions.
