If you come across an Indian handicraft object or garment abroad, chances are it will have been bought in Jaipur. As a regular tourist, you’ll find it harder to hunt out the best merchandise here, but as a source of souvenirs, perhaps only Delhi can surpass it. In keeping with Maharaja Jai Singh’s original city divisions, different streets are reserved for purveyors of different goods. Bapu Bazaar, on the south side of the Pink City, is the best place for clothes and textiles, including Jaipur’s famous block-print work and bandhani tie-dye. On the opposite side of town, along Amber Rd just beyond Zorawar Gate, rows of emporiums are stacked with gorgeous patchwork wall-hangings and embroidery; these places do a steady trade with bus parties of wealthy tourists, so be prepared to be hassled; haggle hard. For old-style Persian-influenced vases, along with tiles, plates and candleholders, visit the outlets of the city’s renowned blue potteries along Amber Rd or the workshop of the late Kripal Singh.
