Swati Ubroi

A gota patti specialist, Swati’s intricate and neat work is unparalleled. She uses a lot of gota applique work, tara kaam and chord work, set on gorgeous pastel shades and standout pop colours. A word of caution: set timelines can be a bit of an issue, so we suggest advance orders and a lot of following up.

Johri Bazar

Famous, crowded and confusing; brave the shoppers to look for colourful lehengas, and saris in bhandej and bandhini. For saris try Rooplaxmi, Rana Sari Emporium and Jaipur Sari Kendra. The smaller lanes in Johri Bazaar house the original jeweller workstations or gaddis, and have a lot of outlets for gold, silver and studded jewellery. Also at Johri Bazaar – Jaipuri quilts {rajais} which, it is safe to say, we all own one of.

Bapu Bazar

A tourist hotspot, it’s a treasure trove of typical Jaipuri associations – juttis, Jaipuri bed sheets, soft furnishings and readymade suits. Perfect to buy gifts and souvenirs, since it’s reasonably priced and representative of Jaipur.

Soma

Soma, as a fashion, home ware and lifestyle brand, has managed to preserve and promote an ancient craft: block printing. Made with care and careful technique, their range is always evolving and maintains excellence consistently.
