Octagon (Black Iron / White Resist)
This particular design is a stripped-down version of a traditional Ajrak which requires more dyes and a couple more blocks. The block used on this material is the white outline of the full traditional version. Although it's not white dye but rather the natural colour of the cotton fabric. In order to keep it the natural colour it was resist-printed. The black, on the other hand, is a natural dye made from scrap metal which was applied to the whole piece of material using a brush. In the end it was washed to remove any excess black dye and all the resist.
