...this shop is very sweet. The owner is funny and genuine in his desire to give you a good and fair deal and find just what you're looking for. He has a wide variety of items bursting from every corner, but go just because it's a genuinely lovely experience to talk with the people there - and you'll likely find just what you want at a great price, and even a cup of tea or coffee while you're looking.

How to say all the good that I think of Scorpion Handicrafts and Alok who is the soul of this shop and its team so delicious. I have known this store for several years now. And I enjoy all the creations offered. The welcome is incredibly warm. The products are different from what we find in other shops and always at the forefront of fashion. We often as yogis travelers share similar experiences when we come to do Training in Rishikesh and the majority of girls end up in this shop. Because it is a real breath of fresh air in our stay. I can only recommend you to visit and even if you don't want to buy something just go share a tea and a smile with Alok.

This is the BEST shop in all of Rishikesh, I was there for 30 days and trust me, I went to a lot of spots before discovering this gem. The owner, Alok, is incredibly kind and patient. We were 8 girls and he let us try on everything with no pressure to buy. His prices are excellent and his selection for clothes, bedding, home stuff is EXCELLENT. Go here!!

When you walk in the shop you instantly will get mesmerised by all the beautiful colours. Anything you're looking for; they will probably have it in the store. The owner, Alok, is a really heartwarming and happy soul who is pleased to help you. While drinking chai tea you can shop in the most relaxt way. I would definitely recommend this store!

From the moment you walk in and are greeted by Alok Jain with a smile and an offer of chai, you will feel right at home. I spent every Sunday I had off traveling there to see what new treasures I could find. And I was never disappointed. The best in quality handcrafted textiles. The girls who work in the shop are also very helpful and amazingly quick at wrapping a sari around you!

WHen I stayed in Rishikesh for yoga I was there for 5 weeks. One of my favorite places to retreat to was Scorpion. THey are so kind and give you chai tea. The clothes are super cute and they have the best pillow covers, yoga blankets, and even bags. I can't wait to get back to see them.

I spent so much time in Scorpion when I was in Rishikesh! This place sells the most amazing variety of clothes, scarves, throws, bags etc... but it is much more than just a store! Alok is an excellent host, providing the best chai tea and chat you can get in North India. Make sure you visit if you're in Rishikesh!

Alok's shop has all your handicraft needs: bags, tapestries, shirts, dresses, pants, plus so much more! My favorite part of the store was Alok though. I was in Rishikesh for a month and I visited Alok every day, he really made my trip. Alok always offered me a drink or food. Alok was also generous enough to share his time and energy offering me and friends to go on trips. He is one of the kindest and most loving person I've ever met. When I return to India, I plan on visiting Alok. The other workers of the shop were very helpful as well, always making great deals for great products. I purchased most of my souvenirs from this shop.

This is a wonderful store tucked in the heart of Rishikesh, India! Here you will find just about any item you are looking for, including yoga clothes, dresses, tunics, skirts, home decor (cushions, pillow cases, rugs, comforters), handbags, scarves, pashminas, and more. Personally, I purchased yoga clothes, tunics, and pashminas for my family in the U.S.A. For myself, I bought a gorgeous handbag and all of the above. :-) In addition to the various, high-quality items, the owner, Alok, and his employees will treat you like an old, best friend returning back home. You are welcome to have tea or juice and sit on the carpet inside the store while being helped with your shopping requests. The level of kindness, friendliness, and hospitality is like no other. And, as a perk, henna is also offered! I look forward to returning to Rishikesh especially to stop into Scorpion Handicraft! This is a must stop! You will love it.
