Details

It can take up to three weeks to complete the laborious handmade process of ajrak textile printing. Dozens of hand-carved blocks are used to stamp a resist paste onto the cloth, which is then dyed and laid in the sun to dry. The longer the dye sets, the more vibrant the color. Then the cloth is washed to remove the resist, and the process begins again with a different block pattern. All told it can take 30 separate steps to achieve the intricate floral and geometric patterns for which ajrak is known. The traditional color palette of crimson red, indigo blue, and white on this all-cotton duvet cover is said to represent the universe: red for the earth, white for clouds, and blue for the sky, the universe itself. Two matching pillow shams complete the set.

"Score! On summer decor!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I like to change things up for the seasons. These pillow covers really brighten up the family room for summer. The colors are brilliant and each piece is beautifully handmade. A special touch to the room I will enjoy putting out each year. I live in a small space, so instead of new pillows, I chose pillow covers. They take up little space in storage.

"A beautiful cotton quilt for Summer"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

Very comfortable for hot Summers in Australia. The only drawback is that you have to dry clean this quilt and cannot put in a washing machine.
