Inspirational! Families of former tiger poachers sustaining themselves with well-made crafted goods. We visited with a group and were served a delicious lunch.

Worth a stop. They are empowering women to be independent. The prices may be slightly more expensive, but it is worth it to help these families.

After staying 4 days near the tiger reserve and learning the history of the reserve and seeing the tigers.......we stopped at Dhonk. I am glad we stopped AFTER our experience with the reserve. We knew what the local tribes were up against and why they have hunted and killed tigers in the past. All this is changing, but a void... More

Dhonk, a handicraft workshop, and store, which is very active and persistent with the moral background. A strong and transparent tagline- the creation of art for conservation. They are working with the tigers, as well as the local villagers. Giving sustainable employment to the local men and women. The goal is to bring the local population to work and earn... More

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.
