Very beautiful shop filled with amazing fabrics, new and old. The brothers who own the shop are very lovely and creative. They are turning old fabrics into cool jackets and other pieces. Fantastic!

Bowani and Sawai were the most accommodating hosts to their beautiful shop. They put so much care and passion into their artwork and it shows with the intricate designs as well as the quality of hand-sewn quilts, table runners and all the other products.
Would happily recommend this shop to anyone who cares about heritage, history and passion in art.

There still are lucky coincidences in life. I met Bhawani sitting in front of his family-owned shop at the entrance gate of the Jaisalmer fort. At the time just it was just one of many such textile shops for me.

I was in Jaisalmer for the finish line event of an adventure rally with tuctucs called the Rickshaw Run and after asking me if I was there for the Rickshaw Run and if I was looking for anything specia for the finish line (which none of the other shop owners had asked me), he invited us inside for chai and to look at fabrics. Bhawani knows his stuff and quickly found my preferred fabric between the many that he has in his shop while staying transparent about price and soon we had a deal for a tailor-made jacket for me that would be ready the next day. He was also very helpful in making other arrangements for our finish line.

We also were able to meet with Bhawani's family, which gave this purchase a nice extra human touch. Warmly recommended!

Such a nice place to visit and be welcomed. The owner is very welcoming and when i passed by the art gallery he just wanted to chat. We sat for 1 hour just chatting and he didnt try to sell me anything. After he brought some lunch his mother made so we ate in his shop. He has really nice materials which are hand made. He offers great prices and is a honest person. I highly recommended coming here.
