Ajrakh style printing originated from the Sindh region of Pakistan, and later influenced fabric artists in Kutch of Gujarat and then in Rajasthan. Its history can be traced back to the ancient civilizations of the Indus valley, from around 2500 B.C. to 1500 B.C. The Ajrakh shawls are a luscious modal and silk blend, with a beautiful sheen. Hand block printed and hand-embroidered, they have hundreds of tiny mirrors stitched into place. A generous swath of fabric, these shawls measure 38″ wide by 90″ long.

You will love the soft, alluring iridescence of these pieces. You will glimmer and shine from every angle just like a summer rainbow. A fun fact about the word iridescent:
Iris, the Greek goddess of the rainbow, took messages from Mount Olympus to earth, and from gods to mortals or other gods, using the rainbow as her stairway. Iridescence is thus the glowing, shifting, colorful quality of a rainbow, also seen in an opal, a light oil slick, a butterfly wing, or the mother-of-pearl that lines an oyster shell.
