Abstract: The present study attempts to document the magnificent resist printed natural dyed textiles of Ajrakh, which has reached the threshold of extinction of its pure form. This is due to increase in fashion, use of synthetic dyes and production of screens for this block printed textile. The objectives were to document the craft of Ajrakh printing in detail and record the changes that have come about in its manufacturing process, colours and motifs. Data regarding the craft was collected from a purposively selected sample practicing the craft in the traditional manner. Ajrakh, traditionally a double sided resist block printed cotton textile has undergone a number of changes in production, in the motif and colours used.
