Generally guide will take you to there for commission. You can see block painting there, but it is a shop with lot of handmade things. You can buy small things as a momento

We did not get to see live hand block printing. It was informative to read about the textile making process, but there is nothing special about this place. The museum shop was extremely overpriced.

Guides may take you here for their tips and commisions if you buy anything from here. This place is not recommended for shopping as prices are too high which you can get in Bapu Bazar etc. However one can see the hand printing technique which is shown for a minute. See it if you are interested in hand printing technique... More

Don't miss this under-rated museum. It is packed with beautiful examples of vintage block print fabrics and has wonderful demonstrations of the craft itself. The store also won us over with great cards, hand-printed fabric books of all sizes, and of course lots of great textiles you could take home. Very worthwhile.

Anokhi Museum [near Amer fort] isn't just a shopping store but is much more then that. They are preserving some dying arts and thus they offer some amazing quality products and I recommended all those who are visiting the Pink city must stop here...

Wonderful museum in a restored Haveli quite near the Amber Fort, a perfect stop post fort. Something for everyone, kids and adults. The preservation of the art of hand blocking fabric is detailed here. There is a very small shop that sells Anokhi products, but I would recommend the large shop in Jaipur which has a wonderful selection and a... More

We had no luck to get there a Monday... It is pretty easy to find when you come down from the fort, with a lot of sign in a dedale of little street. Just going there is nice.
