Rajasthan Handicraft is richest in India. The land of the Kings, is a part the ‘colour belt’ of western India. It is not only during festivals or ceremonies that Rajasthan looks bright, it is everyday. By the side of the well, at the village haat, weekly market place, at fairs and festivals, in the temple, on the streets, at weddings, rituals and ceremonies, everywhere Rajasthan displays the most brilliant of colors.

Bandhani or Bandhej is the name of the tie and dye technique used commonly in the region. Coming from the Hindi word ‘bandhan’ meaning ‘to tie’, this technique has a self explanatory name. The fabric is tied at various places with the help of a thread, in a way that it makes some pattern. After the tying is done, the fabric is dipped in the desired colour. After it is completely dried, the ties are opened and the amazing designs come to reality. The threads prevent the tied area from absorbing the colour and hence the desired pattern is realized.

Carpets and Durries
The hand knotted woolen carpets of Tonk, Bikaner and Jaipur, are generally based on Persian styles. The traditional cotton durries of Jaipur, Jodhpur are, mostly in pastel shades with geometrical motifs design. These can brighten any dullest floor. Woolen Namda of Tonk (non woven) are equally popular.

Rajasthan is rich in jewelry, each area having it's own unique style. Some of the traditional design are rakhri, bala, bajuband, gajra, gokhru, jod, etc. tribal women wear heavy, simply crafted silver jewelry . Men also wear ornaments in the form of chockers and earrings. During Mughal Empire, Rajasthan became a major canter for production of fine kind of jewelry It was a true blend of the Mughal with the Rajasthani craftsman ship. The Mughals brought sophisticated design and new technical know-how of the Persians origin with them.

Particularly jooties with embroidered uppers are famous and popular. Today even designer hand-bags with graphic embroideries make a good buy. Wood, metal and Stone are used by today’s craft persons to create decorative and utility items that shoppers often find irresistible.
