Rajasthali

The state emporium of Rajasthan, Rajasthali is a treat for visitors. They have an amazing variety of handicrafts, sculptures and art work. Makrana (a place in Nagaur district of Rajasthan State where milky white stone is mined) marble statues are a big attraction. The intricate and ornamental marble work has earned Rajasthan a rightful preeminent place in this art form . It is not unusual to find marble work with gold embossing. Fine filigree and trellis work adorn marble pillars, furniture, figurines and tableware. Elephant shaped pieces in makrana, meenakari (enamelling) and wood are very attractive. A pair of huge marble elephants would cost Rs. 2.5 lakh. But not to despair, there are affordable miniatures as well! Another attraction is the blue pottery from Jaipur: vases, ashtrays, plates and tiles that are totally besotting. Camel leather shoes and jootis are popular and so are the low slung foldable chairs, chowkis or bajots (very low tables, often used for religious purposes) jhoolas (swings) and puja mandaps (pedestals for worship) – all made from wood and painted in vibrant colours. Miniature paintings on camel bones and paper which narrate tales from the royal past of the Shekhawati region are famous and cost around Rs. 8,000 per piece. Check out the wide range of saris in cotton, chiffon, georgette and silk and sporting different names, depending on their place of origin or method of creation. You have Sanganeri, Bagru, Barmeri, Khari, Leheria, Zari Kota Doria, Mothda, Bandhej, they are all available. Also, make sure you pick up the light weight Jaipuri quilt (razai) , with cotton block prints. This eco-friendly comforter is a must have.
