Block Printed Ajrakh Kimono Robe
Ajrakh is the most luxurious and expensive form of Indian fabric printing. It requires 14 different steps. Creating even small amounts of this beautiful, artistic fabric is extremely labor intensive. It must be hand block printed, resist-dyed, dried in the sun, washed and then repeated over and over. The more time these fabrics spend in the sun, the more intense the color will be. The kaftans pictured were dyed using indigo leaves for the blues and madder root for the reds. A true labor of love.
Our robes are hand printed by a family of traditional Indian Artisans in Bagru, Rajasthan.They are so comfy you will feel like a queen.
These robes have two deep side pockets and a detachable tie belt with loops. The pockets, sleeves and edges are finished off with a beautiful hand printed border that matches the belt. They are great for lazy Sundays around the house, a day at the pool, a beach vacation, Netflix and a glass of wine, or even for your bridesmaids on your wedding day.
