neat museum and the building is interesting as well. be prepared for a lot of stairs, though. i don't know much about textiles or printing processes, and i though the explanatory texts and layouts were very well-done and informative. there were also a few artisans working inside, we watched a man carve the printing blocks, and two others as they...

Anokhi, forthose who wear the clothes made by them is a must place to visit when in Jaipur. One is spoilt for choice with garments and home linen printed in typical Rajasthani motifs with hand blocks and natural colours. Anokhi works to preserve the traditions and prints of Rajasthan. Anokhi has a lovely coffee shop tucked in with some interesting... More

This is a wonderful museum if you are interested in textiles and the block printing process. The building itself, a former haveli, is worth seeing as well. We loved seeing the history of these fabrics unfold and the beautiful examples on display. The shop too was great--I was wishing for even more items reproducing the textiles we'd seen.

This is a lovely museum set back from the hustle and bustle of Jaipur city. It's very close to a lake, old temples and a step well, so it is well worth walking around the area. The demonstrations upstairs were interesting to watch and made the trip all the way to Amer worth it as I haven't seen the printing... More

From arrival, seeing the paper in large sheets of paper outside drying in the sun, through all the hand and Lord fashion machine processes, it's all very interesting and good value paper stuff to buy in the gift shop

This is such a little gem - not huge, but so lovely, with wonderful examples of block printed fabrics, both historic and modern. Set in a beautiful building, we so enjoyed seeing all the displays, and also watching an artisan block printing. There is a very nice little gift shop with a range of block printed cotton items etc. and,... More
