  • Shri Sai Yash Crafts Boutique: Brilliant shop in Lemon Tree Premier hotel, Jaipur

    by Thursa14 Written Feb 15, 2016

    The best thing about the Lemon Tree Premier hotel was the shop on the second floor (at the entrance to the restaurant), Shri Sai Yash Crafts Boutique. Owner Bhupendra has a beautiful range of high-quality and authentic items and he was really happy to chat with us and discuss his work as an artist. He was an honest and no-pressure salesman (which in India is refreshing!), and sells things at much fairer prices than the showrooms you'll likely be taken to if you're on a tour. Highly recommended!!

    What to buy: Hand-made tunics and shirts, silk scarfs, cashmere pashminas, silver jewellery, ornaments, original artwork

    What to pay: Haggle, but you can safely expect the prices to be lower than the showrooms - chat about your trip and where you're going, as the owner is keen to better the prices (and quality) you'll encounter elsewhere.

    Satgurus: Fabrics and soft furnishings

    by lomi Updated Nov 26, 2012

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This shop sells every type of fabric you can think of by the yard. It also has ready made duvets, bedspreads, wall-hangings, soft furnishings and clothes. The merchandise is spread over 2 floors.

    You can take any style of outfit to the shop, choose which fabric you would like and have it made up in the shop and get it delivered to your hotel the next day.

    Fantastic display and choice. You can haggle.

    What to buy: I was specifically looking for a wall-hanging in the Zardozi tradition, and luckily they had one. Mine was 1075 x 2000 meters and has 130 embroidered panels. I will treasure it for ever.

    What to pay: Haggle with the price, its expected

    Directions: Get in any tuk tuk and ask for Satgurus.

    Shops: SML Razaies

    by anilpradhanshillong Written Apr 4, 2012

    What to buy: For very light quilts, the type you would like to cover yourself with when the air-conditioner or the fan is going on at full blast, try the .5 or 1 kg Jaipur quilt. You may like the pure cotton covers rather than their silken variety. The preferred brand is ‘SML’ and the one shop is No. 52-53, Chaura Rasta.

    Directions: Shop # 52-53, Chaura Rasta

    Try out Shop # 172-A in Bapu Bazar for their wide variety of churidar-kurta suits and dress material. Besides other ladies’ garments, they also keep plenty of linen material, like bedsheets, bedcovers and pillow covers. The best part is their competitive prices as well as their excellent cotton material.

    Shops: Anokhi

    by MalenaN Updated Nov 17, 2010

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I liked Anokhi and bought two skirts and two white blouses here, but it would not have been difficult to find many more things to purchase. In the shop you can find high quality textiles, many of the clothes and fabrics are block printed, a speciality for Anokhi. It is not cheap, but the prices are lower than at home.
    The clothes are produced outside Jaipur, in the fabric on an organic farm.

    Anokhi is open between 9.30 - 20.00 on Monday - Saturday, and between 11.00 - 19.00 on Sundays.

    Next to the shop there is an Anokhi café.

    In Amber there is an Anokhi Museum about block printing.

    And there are Anokhi shops in several other Indian cities than Jaipur.

    Shops: What to buy in Jaipur

    by MM212 Updated Oct 13, 2010

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Jaipur's bazaars are full of intriguing arts, crafts and other items to buy. Prices are typically far lower than New Delhi and Bombay, which tend to sell Jaipur-made arts and crafts for multiples of the price. So save your shopping for Jaipur when travelling through India. A wide range of interesting items are available, including marionettes, pashminas, colourful umbrellas, pottery, spices, flowers, fabrics, etc. Attached are photos containing examples of such items.

    by vijrac Written Jan 25, 2010

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    When I first enter the shop, it did not feel like the shop. Actually it was a art school, it is run by a family headed by the father Mr. Jugal Kishore. Who have won several Award of excellence from the government. When his son Mr. Vijay was giving the demonstration I was very amazed to see that he can right a full name of a small grain of rice. They have a very nice collection of paintings on silk, paper, marble and wood. A must watch for everyone who is going to Jaipur.
    I am very amazed to see that someone can do such a beautiful art.

    What to buy: You can buy from some most common paintings to some of the most exclusive painting. They have a very nice collection of some of the collection pieces.

    What to pay: Depending upon the art work

    Address: Shop No. P 29-30-32, Nagar Nigam Colony,

    Shops: the bazaar

    by uglyscot Written Dec 9, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    One of the many shops in the bazaar near the Hawa Mahal. Everything is bright and colourful. Looking is fun, buying is something else with these tough traders.

    What to buy: Indian garments, cotton skirts and blouses, shawls and pashminas are good buys.
    Look at the colourful umbrellas, the bracelets etc which are so attractive- but do you really need them??

    What to pay: Most important of all is to bargain. Aim at getting your purchase for about one-third of the original price the trader suggests first.

    Address: Central Bazaar

    Directions: Beside the Hawa Mahal

    Shops: Chandpol & Tripolia Bazaars

    by Willettsworld Written Oct 20, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The shops that run along the length of Chanpol and Tripolia Bazaars in the Old City are an attraction in their own right. I walked along these bazaars from Chandpol Gate in the west and passed by shops selling absolutely everything from tiles to paint, stationary to textiles, coffee, spices and nuts. I even saw a few selling old sewing machines! If you cut through behind the shops like you have to do so if you want to climb up the Iswari Minar Swarga Sal, you'll find many repair and wholesalers selling hardware for the building trade.

    Shops: Just wander...

    by BluBluBlu Written Aug 3, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Jaipur is a great shopping city...just wander around on your own...and IGNORE the touts. Areas to look are MI Road, and around Hawa Mahal. Forget the semi precious stones, because unless you are an expert, you'll probably get ripped off! I liked the marble pieces in particular.

    Hi Friends,
    We wanted to buy a rug from India and visited shops in Delhi, Agra and some in Jaipur. Prices varied across all the shops and sales man tried fooling us at many places. Since the decision involved big money and we were on budget thus we finally went for trip advisor rating and found Jal Mahal Textile & Carpets.

    At Jal Mahal they have one of the finest collection of carpets in India and the prices half of what we have seen across many shops in India. Kudos to Jal Mahal Textile and Carpets for being so professional to customers when it comes customer servicing, quality products and pricing above all. Carpet shipped in 7 days along with quality certificate. I would recommend Jal Mahal to every one who is looking for Carpet in India.
