"Ajarak printing is a multi stage process. The fabric is first treated and made ready for printing. The first level of printing is in a resist of gum and lime using an outline block. Then the black colour, red, indigo, madder is printed in that order. If the design calls for the colour green, then that colour is applied after the madder has been applied. The designs are geometric and floral."
