- Artisans follow a painstaking process to make one batch of Ajrak shawls.
- Ajrak is an important symbol of Sindhi culture, and the shawls are worn throughout Pakistan.
- The traditional method involves some unusual ingredients, like camel and cow dung.
Craftsmen spend hours meticulously producing Ajrak by mapping out the pattern on thick, starched cotton fabric that holds its rigid shape. Despite cheap, machine-made copies flooding the market, Imran Soomro and his family are determined to keep the craft alive in Bhit Shah, Pakistan.
