Owner description: Unique stop for Ranthambhore visitors who are looking for interacting with local people who are doing craft work in the beautiful workshop facility. Dhonk is a social startup which aims at providing sustainable jobs to the ex-poachers families and village folks by giving them training in crafts and selling their produce at our fair trade store/ workshop situated at the fateh villa campus.

Simple but very beautiful designs and very well priced. Full marks to their products, a large stock of it is worked on at the workshop itself. Its easy to say reform ex-poachers or their families. This is probably one among very few shops which work with such families and does provide an alternative lively hood for them.

When you shop for beautiful and high quality gifts at Dhonk, you are providing poacher families a alternate way to make a living.

Dhonk 提供盜獵老虎的弱勢民族一個新的就業機會,讓他們不需要再以盜獵為生,所以當你買Dhonk美麗做工精細的禮品時,你也幫助了老虎。

Thoughtfully designed and well-made pieces. You know you are not going to get the same in any other shop. Don't get me wrong. I do love FabIndia and Anokhi. But they make a few standard pieces that they sell all over India. Sometimes their set up sounds like a factory.

Dhonk engages with the community in every other possible way. This IS poacher rehabilitation and local community support in action. If you are more about Tigers and wildlife, than poor communities - you know this is helping them.

Of course, if you manage to stay for a while you can play with Hosho, hear stories of Ranthambhore from Divya and see some fantabulous pictures (she has Tiger karma), and just feel a part of the small but very cool family.

Visited Dhonk shop at Ranthambore. It truly supports the local arts and crafts and loved the mélange of modernity with folksy patterns.

Also the thought of rehabilitating ex-poachers and their families appealed to me greatly. Wish they would advertise as no one knows about this exquisite shop which is like a hide-out!

Look for tigers, search for Dhonk!
