Sufiyan Ismail Khatri uses traditional Ajrakh crafts to create hand-printed and naturally-dyed fabrics such as scarves, shawls, rugs, and tablecloths. Ajrakh's craft is over 4000 years old. Some traditional textiles have been found in the ruins of the city of Fostat in Egypt. Khatri comes from the Khatri community. Khatri means printer and the community is made up of artisans who do Ajrakh printing and natural dyeing. His ancestors practiced this technique on the banks of the Indus River in Sindh. For them, the ajrakh is a way of life and a means of learning. A unique feature of Ajrakh is a resist printing technique that uses gum arabic and lime paste on hand-carved blocks of wood, as well as the skillful use of wood stains and natural dyes to create natural gem-like shades that retain color.
