Jabbar Khatri was born into a traditional Khatri family in Dhamdka, a small village in Gujarat. While his grandfather was originally a block printer, his father gave up this traditional job due to irregular income. Raised in the rural setting of Kutch, Jabbar Bhai disliked working in urban environments. His busy and very demanding professional life took a toll on his health. After careful consideration, he decided to return home and work at a tile factory in his hometown for a few years, before the unit closed and left him unemployed. Today, Jabbar Bhai is an independent craftsman with a small team of ten artisans who work tirelessly to create these stunning Ajrakh prints that embody unique aesthetics.
