The term Pink City is given to my hometown Jaipur. Jaipur is a city which has become a tourist attraction for global travellers and with backpackers coming here from all around the world the pink city is filled with shopping lovers. As we the Jaipur fashion designers, Jewellers and even street food venders are experts in the field of Shopping we are making a good profit from this Pink city of Shopaholics.
So today I, Jatin Chhabra, Founder of Jaipur’s 1st online shopping resource site Shoppingadvisor.in, want to share some amazing shopping destinations which one should visit. I personally love the wide variety of gems and jewelry, as Jaipur is no doubt a city of ancient Jewellers. Some Jewellers here are like 400 year old.
The expensive one way lane of MI Road
MI Road is Jaipur best destination to buy some of the most expensive gemstones and place of award winning Jewelry studios like Birdhichand ghanshyam das, Mikala silver, Sunita shekhawat etc. Now a question comes that why Jaipur Jewelry Studios are different from rest of the world? Answer is that some of them are globally renowned Astrologers and many Indian industrialists and Actress visits them not just for shopping but to get the best gemstones as per their planets.
Even if you are not interested to buy some amazing rings, necklace etc, as per your planets, that’s cool. Believe me you can never find such a wide variety of Jewelry & gems as you can explore it at MI Road. Just click here to have a look at some of the best Jewellers in Jaipur city.
The ethnic clothing of Jaipur
In Jaipur, majority fashion designers aren’t engaged in western clothing. Popular clothing styles in Jaipur are Saree and Indian bridal wears. Though every Indian state has its own Saree making style but Jaipur is nationally famous for its bridal saree as it has the stamp of Jaipur royalty. The borders of Jaipur bridal saree are made up of golden threads and it has some pretty expensive gems on it. If you want to view some of the finest Jaipur Saree makers then do visit my site’s Saree page.
The handmade style of organic cloth making
In India globalization came in 1991. Many old tribal and ethnic wears took a blow as the locals were now more interested in the fusion of fashion which also hit Jaipur in 91. Jaipur was once the global centre of handmade clothing but now this art is almost vanished. Though some local entrepreneurs like Rachel Bracken and her husband Pritam Singh started the famous Anokhi Museum of Hand Printing which is also a UNESCO award winner for ‘Cultural Conservation’ in the year 2000.In Anokhi Museum one can get hand block printing textile and hand-stitched blankets which is very rare and also enjoy a lunch at their cool café.
For me places like Anokhi are the real presenter of Jaipur Fashion and Shopping industry and I personally welcome all the reader of my blog to experience shopping in my city.
