Trip to Sanganer, Jaipur


I recently went to Sanganer, Jaipur – The Pink city last weekend.

Everything is so overwhelming in Sanganer, Jaipur – The castles of 
the Emperors, historical monuments, the temples, the local markets 
which are full of vibrant handmade products and not to forget, 
especially the people there. The very famous Pink city of India will 
make you fall in love with it and you would want to visit it again and again.

Sanganer is a small town, just 16 km away from Jaipur and the Jaipur
airport is situated here in this town. The printing designs of our bedspreads
are inspired by the Sanganer prints which are unique and famous all over
the world. The Bandhej, Bandhani or Chunri designs are an epitome of handmade
Tie & Dye designs that are produced here in Sanganer, Jaipur.

I clicked this picture in the
Albert Museum, Jaipur.
The history of Bandhej designs
dates back to medieval times
when people were fascinated by this
creative tie and dye effect that looks
beautiful in true sense.

We have many bedspreads that are inspired by this Bandhej effect.
Have a look:

Paisley Chunri Based Bedspread
 
Margherita Flower Chunri based Bedspread
 
 
 
I went to click more pictures in the Albert Museum and happened to see the
Puppet show as well. Wow!
The next was Bapu Bazzar on my list. This is a tourist hotspot as you can
get the most unique and handmade products here, the Jaipuri bedsheets,
 jutis (bellies), ready made suits, lehanga chunni, pottery,
decoratives and the list never ends.
Few of my picks from the Bapu Bazaar are these:

Rajasthani Wall Hanging

                                                          Cotton Printed Dress
                                                                   Handmade Cotton Bag
Jaipuri Cotton Bedsheet
Some of our bedspreads that can be used as Wall hangings are:
 Good morning Sun & Moon Wall Hanging
Round Elephant Wall Hanging
 
 
After visiting Bapu Bazzar, I packed my bags and started recapturing
the moments of the two days which I spent here in the Pink City.
This is an awesome place to visit and to learn about handicrafts more deeply.
This trip was as an awesome experience, wish I had more days to stay here.
I’ll come again for sure!
Cheers!
