Where to buy thin printed cotton in Delhi?

by catfish22

Hi,
There seems to be some serious shoppers on this site so I'm hoping that I can get some advice in finding this particular type of fabric in Delhi.

Ive used a picture of it as my homepage pic, its the top of a dress commonly made in India in the 70's and 80's which is reproduced on a smaller scale now. Its a very thin soft cotton often with a border print. Often with paisley, birds, butterflies etc.

Any markets, shops, wholesalers names etc would be much appreciated. I am looking to buy several hundred metres :)
Thanks so much in advance!

Hi
I don't believe that it is going to be easy to find this particular fabric.On many visits to Delhi, and India, I have not seen anything similar.However- have a look at the website of this cotton/textile company. I suggest that you email them, and send the photo. They may have something similar.

Hi Lynne,
Thanks for the info. Have looked at that site before but unfortunately it doesnt actually let u email companys, just fill out the enquiry form. Found a few with an email tho so have contacted them, no replies yet. I Know its still made as I bought some a few months ago, one lot in Goa, and some in Pushkar that came from Delhi so I shall just go with an optimistic nature and take my samples.
Thanks again,
K

Travel Tips for New Delhi

Bangles

by 20011019

When I was in India, I was travelling with my boyfriend. In India people find it strange to see a girl and a boy travelling together except if they're married so we've noticed. In my time in India I really liked the bangles (the bracelets) and as I was wearing them, man treated me with al respect and there wasn't a single guy whotried to bother me. Because bangles mean that a woman is married. So as we walked down the street an men looked at me, my boyfriend only had to point at my bangles and the men understood! Maybe also a good tip for women travelling alone!

Your friendly cabbie in Delhi

by Tijavi

This is Kumar, a friendly and honest and reliable cabbie in Delhi. I asked him to take me around the city in his Ambassador cab, and he never charged anymore than what the meter indicated. But he deserved more, so I gave him quite a generous tip.

He deserved it. Aside from knowing all the great sites within and around Delhi, he will make sure you're well protected (mostly from annoying touts, although I am not really that bothered by them). Sure, he'll take you to boutiques and souvenir shops, from which he'll probably get extra, but he never insisted that you buy anything from these shops.

When in Delhi, you may contact Kumar through his mobile (+9198) 10961097. He's based at Taj Palace Hotel (within the diplomatic enclave), but he does take calls from non-Taj Palace Hotel guests.

Visit to Red fort

by mantru

Mughal emperor Shah Jahan founded this city of Delhi in the mid seventeenth century.He called it Shahjahanabad, meaning City of Shah Jahan. At its centre stood the Red Fort, a vast walled complex of beautiful palaces and meeting halls from which the Emperor ruled with unmatched public pomp and ceremony.It represented the pinnacle of Mughal palace-fort building, and symbolized political and economic power. It was also perhaps the most extravagant and sophisticated theatre ever built for daily performances of one of the world's most dazzlingly grand courts. But its glory was short-lived; as the Mughal Empire waned, so did the Fort. Later Emperors abused the fine buildings, raiders snatched its treasures, marauders wrecked its buildings and finally the British, blind to its qualities, pulled down the greater part.

Form the Lahore Gate, a visitor has access to the Chatta Chowk (vaulted arcade ) which as once a royal market and housed court jewelers, miniature painters carpet manufacturers, workers in enamel, silk weavers and families of specialized craftsmen.
If you want to see Red Fort made of red sandstone then u have to go to old delhi ....where u can see the Jama masjid ,the famous Chandni chowk,if you are looking for books you can drop into Darya ganj........old delhi is also famous for street food........

Administrative buildings

by uglyscot

The two blocks of administrative buildings before the presidential palace incorporate different architectural styles Greek, Roman, Moghul. The two blocks are symmetrical. In front of each are two sandstone columns representing the commonwealth countries of Australia, New Zealand, Canada and South Africa. Each column is surmounted by a sailing ship by which trade was conducted.

In VEDIC beliefs, Yamuna (Yamî) is the FIRST woman. According to legend the goddess of the river Yamuna/ Yami, is the sister of the Hindu god of death, Yama and the daughter of Surya, the Sun god. The river Yamuna is also connected to the religous beliefs surrounding the Hindu god Krishna.

(The religion of the VEDIC civilization is the foundation of classical and modern Hinduism, Buddhism and Jainism).
