Fabric: Modal Silk
Modal is incredibly luxurious, lightweight, and silky smooth. It breathes, absorbs water, is shrink resistant, and holds dyes well so your scarf is unlikely to fade. It is soft and warm and a quality modal will not pill easily. The first modal was created in Japan in 1951 and has been improved over time.
This is an authentic Ajrakh hand printed product. Only natural dye is used in the making of this product. In Ajrakh printing, the fabric is first printed with a resist paste, and then it is dyed. This process is repeated several times with different kinds of dyes with the aim of achieving the final design in the deep blue and red shade. This process consumes a lot of time. The longer the time span before commencing the next stage, the more rich and vibrant the final print becomes. Hence, this process can consume up to two weeks and consequently results in the formation of exquisitely beautiful and captivating designs of the Ajrakh.
Note- There may be slight color variations due to photographic reasons.
This is a handcrafted product and any irregularities in the design or pattern should not be taken as a defect. These irregularities make every handloom piece unique. Color might bleed so please dry clean for first few washes.
