Ajrakh From Kutch Gets GI Tag

Ajrakh From Kutch Gets GI Tag:

Ajrakh’s GI tag was granted by the Geographical Indications Registry after a long process of documentation and verification of its origin and production techniques.

  • The Ajrakh fabric is a traditional hand-block printing technique that originated in Kutch, Gujarat.
  • It uses natural dyes and intricate patterns to create beautiful textiles, which are then used to make sarees, dupattas, stoles, and other garments.
  • The unique feature of Ajrakh is its use of geometric patterns and rich earthy colours like indigo, madder, and mustard.
  • This fabric has been an integral part of the Kutchi culture for centuries and has now gained recognition on a global level with its GI tag.
