Situated next to Oberoi hotel, their shop and factory grounds make a very pretty sight. But the prices are very steep, esp. when you compare with the original women crafts place Dastkar.

Visited this work shop in march and was delighted to see and experience the whole set up. The handicrafts were being made with absolute precision and efficiency. The block print was my favourite. The cost justified to the work put into it and to the cause too.

As part of our trip with Overseas Adventure Travel we had lunch here with the craftswomen and heard their stories. They have beautiful hand made items at a fair trade price. The money spent here goes directly to the families. They accept credit cards. I have received many compliments on the small fabric purse, napkins, and other items I purchased... More

This is a private shop located on main Ranthambore Road. Has got some unique handicrafts but the prices are above average. You may visit but check the prices before you buy.

We visited Dhonk after seeing the reviews on here and asking our driver to stop off enroute. So glad we did! The people here are just wonderful, and the message they promote is too. We ended up coming away with possibly a few bits we didn't need but wanted to help in some small way. Saying that though, I did... More

The perfect solution to multiple issues - a marriage of the creative spirit with preservation of the beauty and bounty of Ranthambore. If you cannot travel there, you may also find them on Facebook at Dhonk Craft. Support the beautiful work of these women and support preservation of Ranthambore Nature Preserve.

I visited Dhonk for the second time over the past weekend, and am absolutely amazed by the place. I am not merely talking here about the kaleidoscope of colours and sheer range of handicraft products, but also the bustle of the place with local women working as away making things on site. Also, underneath it all, the deeply ethical roots... More

This organization offers villagers sustainable job opportunities through the creation of art and crafts. The products they create include beautiful garments, home accessories, whimsical toys and so much more. Meeting the women and talking with them about how this cooperative has enhanced their lives makes the any purchase you make even more meaningful.

So glad we were introduced to this cooperative. It was wonderful to see women and men engaged in a socially responsible enterprise that will benefit tourists and their lives with sustainable job opportunities. The clothes and accessories were wonderful. Their energy and attitudes were so infectious. "You can make a difference"

for this cooperative for the benefit for area residents. Details can be found in other reviews on this page. My review is not just based on it being a fine eleemosynary effort but that the goods produced are of high quality and fairly priced. We bought a bunch of stuff we probably don't need but were struck by the colors,... More
