FROM SEED TO SHIRT
At Azurak we create simple stylish shirts and clothing made
from traditional artisan textiles. We aim to do this with the lightest foot print possible and the biggest social benefit.
Our ethos is to put people and planet first, from seed to shirt.
Our combination of certified organic cotton and plant and mineral dyes is what makes our fabrics truly sustainable.
Our direct trade with traditional artisan communities and our small family run workshop is what makes our garments truly ethical.
The master Ajrakh printers we work with are highly regarded for their alchemic knowledge of natural dyes.
They use a combination of resist paste made from arabic gum and lime along with layers of block print using things like indigo (blue), madder root (red), ochre (yellow) and iron (black).
