I highly recommend popping into for a chai and a chat with Romeo at Romeo's corner as you will leave with a smile and he can tell you almost anything about Bundi and the great things to do and places to go.

I purchased a number of items from Romeos corner including 2 leather books and a great leather tobacco pouch. Really loved the tobacco pouch and the books are a high quality which i'll treasure and use for my illustrations and notes while in India.

Aside from the products Romeo is a well spoken and genuinely helpful friendly guy who over my time in Bundi I socialised with outside of the shop and was great to see his natural repore he has with locals and travellers alike.

I'm looking to stay in touch and potentially order some more of his fantastic tobacco pouches as I think will make amazing gifts back home.

Thanks again mate! Will miss you and my Bundi friends.

As luck would have it, we strolled up to 'Nahar Ka Chohta' from 'Bulbul ka chabootra' tea shop of Lachhu ji (just adjacent Chabootra) and met Romoeo with some locals. Without any apprehensions, he was friendly, as would be many natives in this small town, and took us inside.

He is very friendly, gaining experience fast at this age of 26, having travelled a lot, less than half of my age but I appreciate his killing, intimating nature. On exploring I found his father in nearby confectionery corner shop (Mr. Solanki) was among my friends' group 27 years back when I was posted here as a young Ayurveda doctor by Government of India. He recognized me immediately. I am here again for last tenure if my Govt duty as an experienced Ayurveda doctor.

My write up above is aimed at apprising you all is that 'friendly father produced friendly son'..esp. good for tourists.

We discussed how Bundi can be a better place for tourists. He invited me to keep visiting his corner often. I'll also post helpful tips if I get something new and interesting for Trip Advisor tourists.

His collection of leather art utility bags is wonderful.

He's one of a kind for Bundi but as you travel further in Rajthastan, you'll realize that many shops have the same products. Udaipur has the same products and because there are many shops selling the same things, they're cheaper. Regardless, the stuff is pretty.

We had a wonderful time chatting with Romeo, so I highly recommend stopping in and chatting with him. He is kind, friendly, and interesting. The bags are notebooks are lovely.
However, afterwards we went to Udaipur and found the same type of bags for 1/3 the cost. He simply charged way too much, and not even a little bit so after finding so many of the same products in other parts of India for a fraction of the cost (also camel leather) we felt really hurt and a bit sad that he had taken advantage of our business a bit since he was the only leather bag vendor in town. So I'd 100% recommend buying from him but he should ease up on the prices and be a bit more fair.

I'll give you an example: One bag my friend bought for 800, he was trying to sell for 1000, we saw the same size bag on sale in Udaipur between 400 and 550. These are for the smaller PLAIN colored bags only.
The small bags with hand-stiching were on sale for 1000 ot 1200 from Romeo, and again they were being sold for 400 and 450 here in Udaipur.
Finally, all the notebooks you can barter down to between 200, 250 for the small ones to 300 and 350 for the larger ones in Udaipur. Same exact notebooks.

The LARGER bags *are* more expensive, so they do range between 1,500 to 2,500 rupees but do your research, I have no comment on how much they cost in Udaipur.

Go there and meet Romeo! This place is not just a leather shop with beautiful hand made bags and accessories. It's a welcome and friendly place where there are always cool people, music and good chai!
More than this enjoy all the good city tips from Romeo. He knows everything and he loves helping travelers:)
