“India shopping at its best!”
Reviewed 13 January 2012

I have been to Jodhpur several times and one of my first urges is to go to Ganesh handicrafts! It's literally an aladdin's cave of really high quality goods (fabulous textiles, pashminas, leather goods, cushion covers etc) and the best thing is that there is no pressure to buy -but of course I do! It's the wonderfully warm welcome from Manu and his family that makes this shopping experience truly memorable.

“Pashmina Shawls: Good quality, reasonable and fix prices!”
Reviewed 23 December 2011

Normally i don't like to buy souvenirs in India, because i don't like the hassle. But Ganesh Handicrafts is totally different: The owner speaks very well English, is always very friendly, informs you about the products and - most important for me - leaves you time to look at it. They have got the most beautiful Pashmina Shawls, but also Cashmere and all sorts of wonderful materials. They ship it very cheap if you like. The prices are lower at in other places because at Ganesh they don't pay commissions to Tuktuk-driver. And what i really appreciated: the prices are fix. So the whole bargaining falls away. The shop is maybe 50 meter before you go inside the market (the market with the clocktour) on the left side. 84-85 Nai Sarak.

“Best shop in blue city”
Reviewed 20 December 2011

I have been to this shop with my wife in December 2011 & after checking checking prices in market, i found this shop has really very goods quality & reasonable prices, the shop policy is very good that they don’t push their client to buy anything even you spend hours & make a mass in the store, they send you outside with smiling faces..... ganesh handicrafts have really very nice collection of pashmina shawls & other textiles. We bought some camel wool & pashmina shawls from this store, which are really very unique & good quality. They are located at 84-85 nai sarak, before the clockt tower gate, jodhpur,india...
