    Rugs... or not: Tea Time

    by solopes Updated Dec 19, 2013

    In the Muslim world, when they put a tea cup in your hand, in 80% of the cases you will be negotiating rugs in the next minutes (in 15% you will be bargaining other crafts, and, in the remaining 5% you went out of touristy circuit and met a local family, gentle as they use to be).

    India follows the standards with the same natural or professional sympathy, but with a wider range of articles: I was specially fascinated by some (expensive) inlaid stone works, (fortunately...) too heavy to carry to Europe. The same doesn't apply to miniature paintings. From cheap apprentice work to expensive beautiful compositions, there's a wide choice. And some of them found the way to Turquel.

    Street vendors: You will have to buy

    by solopes Updated Feb 16, 2013

    It is almost impossible to a western citizen, to walk in India without a flock of people around you, offering all kind of crafts. So tiring, that we have not enough patience to enter a shop and face the same pressure of the sellers that come to you like flies.

    As a first experience, it's a nice sensation, but when you are interested in using your time to see the local wonders, it turns... boring. And tiring!

    bazaars in old city: Vibrant Bazaars-Old City

    by lynnehamman Updated Dec 1, 2011

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Wherever possible, I only shop at local bazaars. I love the atmosphere, vibrancy and colours of these crowded and busy chowks. Bargaining is fun- I never try too hard though, because the prices are always so cheap by western standerds anyway. And the profit usually goes directly to the seller- not a third party.The amount of time that goes into the making of the jewellery and sculpted ornaments, clothing and ornamented textiles is certainly to me, anyway, well worth the cost.
    Johari Bazaar I bought some beautiful silk wraps here, and paper-mache jewellry boxes(hand-painted).
    The Bapu bazaar sells Perfumed Oils, Textiles and Camel Skin shoes
    Tripolia Bazaar sells beautiful Brassware.
    There are various other markets- each has a specialization. I loved the Bycycle 'Spare Parts' Bazaar. Unique!

    What to buy: Meenakari Jewellery (enamelled)
    Sari fabric
    Silver Jewellery
    Textiles
    Paper Mache Jewellery Boxes & ornaments
    Camel-Skin Jhooties (shoes with upturned pointed toes)

    Rajasthan Textile Emporium: Rajasthan Textile Emporium

    by georeiser Written May 19, 2010

    Rajasthan Textile Emporium is located on the road between Pink city and downtown. It easy to visit the place. The prices are really cheap. The salesmen in Jaipur are experts, so remember to bargain well. Start with a disgracefully low offer, but do it with a smile.

    What to buy: If you need handbags, clothes or other textiles, you will find it in Rajasthan Textile Emporium.

    street markets: shop shop shop!

    by smirnofforiginal Written Apr 29, 2010

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    THIS is the place to buy bangles. You can get boxes of them and with haggle you can get them for an absolute bargain.

    Wooden block printing blocks are lovely souvineers. Ok, so the ones you pick up in the markets are not high quality originals that have been used and have a nice bit of history to them BUT they are very beautifully carved and exceptionally cheap.

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    jaipur is a place that will definitely fascinate you in terms of souvenirs. You will wish to buy lots of stuffs but unfortunately for tourists that is not always feasible. Jaipur carpets are famous. So are its handicrafts and goods made of camel leather.
