What Makes It Awesome
This multi-level store is a treasure trove of handicrafts from across the country. From wood carvings to paper mache, brassware, textiles, beauty products, home décor, jewellery, wooden furniture, pottery–the list goes on. Each product is unique, reflecting the traditional myths, folklore and cultural ethos of India.
That’s not it. It houses a book store with a varied collection of books on art, textiles, architecture, and handicrafts. From time to time, there are live demonstrations by craftsmen, handicrafts for sale by national awardees, and a café called Smoothie Factory, that has great sandwiches and shakes.
The Emporium has also provided interior decoration and corporate gifting solutions to a number of hotel chains and corporate offices in the city.
What Could Be Better
The prices of some products might be a bit steep, but you must keep in mind that exclusivity does come at a price.
