Hi:
I was in some obscure parts of Rajasthan in February. Udaipur has a number of dealers with small shop "fronts" on the mainstreet which lead into havelis filled with textiles. The material is stocked floor to ceiling and is a mix of new, cut-ups of old embroidery and old things. This is, I think, where those horrible cut up mirror work tapestries come from.

The one shop that I went into was owned/managed by one of those nasty / greedy types, because when I asked him about a Gujurati beadwork pillow, I got an insane price and fictitious dating. When I questioned this, he got very nasty. I just wanted out.

I am sure that Jaipur has some dealers - and that they are not cheap.

Overall, I am not aware of much in Rajasthan - or anywhere in India, for that matter. I've been there a number of times over the years and it is very hard to find dealers. There's one, in New Delhi, who just joined this forum - look on the "for sale" page.

If you're interested in high quality NEW Gujurati material, see if Shrujan.org is having a traveling sale that you could go to. They have a shop in Mumbai. They are an NGO and have 3500 women embroidering - very affordable and wonderful.

I hope this helps.

Thank you Anna!

I will certainly keep all that information in mind when I go exploring. It's really difficult now to find reliable sources. I am going to Rajasthan mainly for gemstones for my jewelry business but it'll be fun to combine the two.

Happy Holidays!

Yes you are right Rajasthan is the state of different tribal clothing designs. you can get different designs and different varieties of tribal clothing at Sirohi District. There are a great number of tribal clothing available to purchase.
