Jai Shankar Handicrafts in majestic Rajasthan showcases Thar Desert Antique Embroidery and Textiles. The embroideries in this region of Rajasthan are impressive. Traditional wedding dresses, opium bags, and dowery bags come from desert villages and are sewn together as patch work wall hangings, bed covers and many other things by local people. The owner, Shankar Khatri, has a Diploma in Culture and Tourism and a passion for arts, so he also creates custom, one-of-a-kind designs.

The owner is one of the friendliest salesmen I've met so far. Made me feel comfortable and at home as soon as I arrived. I went in looking for a shirt, and ended up with a whole outfit. The quality is great, and you can tell instantly. Definitely recommend this place for everyone who wants a hassle-free and enjoyable time.

We went here specifically because the TripAdvisor community said this shop is low pressure. It truly is and we ended up having an outfit custom made for me and it was done by 8pm that evening. The workmanship is wonderful. He is a man of his word and I recommend him highly.
