All I can say is wow.....why was this incredible place not packed? I was literally the only guest late today and was incredibly impressed. The museum is in a beautifully restored havela (sp?) that was honored by UNESCO and chronicles the history of the long-abandoned village and its rich history in textile hand blocking. AND functions as a commune keeping the tradition alive thanks to local artisans and foreign designers who come to enrich their own craft. This is a place for those who love fabric and color and amazing arcitecture; those whon don't can sit for a peaceful 45 minutes having a coffee in the lovely outdoor cafe.

The moment you enter the gates of Anokhi, there is a subtle calmness & gravity.

Seated near the end corner of the amer fort area .. it feels like .. his haveli existing even when the fort lived with life ..

things that stand out :
1. the feel of moving around in a haveli
2. learning about how clothes are made - gives step by step process in dye, printing ..
3. showcases some nice exhibits
4. the treat is at the top floor where you can see an artisan design block, he is so detailed, composed, precised - a great deal of learning
5. additional check if option of printing your t-shirt or scarf is available its a nice momento

6. shop at the museum store.. even though you have anokhi outlets all over the India the pleasure of buying them there is a treat (esp for pp who love their kurti's,scarf & dupattas). You may want to shop these times here , since you really can't find the quality of cloth / print otherwise...

i loved the peace in the place, i learnt a lot & i shopped. sum loved it !
