Description

The word Ajrak has been derived from the Arabic word Azrak meaning blue. It was given the name ajrak probably because it uses indigo as the key dye which is a blue organic compound. Ajrak's existence in ancient times is evident from the poetic masterpiece "Shah Jo Risalo" of Shah Abdul Latif Bhittai, who was the most celebrated Sindhi Sufi saint and mystic poet of all time. 

Sindhi Topi & Ajrak Day

The centuries-old culture of Sindh finds its roots in one of the oldest civilizations of the world, the Indus Valley Civilization. Sindhi people are proud of their rich culture and celebrate the Sindhi Culture Day, also known as the Sindhi Topi and Ajrak Day on 1st Sunday of December every year. The day is celebrated amongst Sindhis in Pakistan and India as well as the Sindhi diaspora around the world. On the day of the event, Sindhi people indulge in festivities as well as singing and dancing to Sindhi songs. They also adorn the ajrak and Topi as a token of respect to their rich culture and as a symbol of solidarity and honour. 

Ajrak Pattern

The Ajrak is a unique block printed cotton cloth that includes symmetrical geometric and floral patterns on a rich red, crimson and indigo base. It has small white and black motifs or unprinted spaces scattered throughout the cloth to give definition to the patterns. The fabric commonly used is high-quality cotton that is smooth and supple like silk. Ajrak making is a complex process that requires 21 stages from start to end and over 40 days to complete. All the dying and printing is done by hand and the cloth is resist-dyed with natural dyes such as madder and indigo. The result is a sparklingly clean ajrak, jewel-like and rich in appearance.
