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!

So happy I found this beautiful store! As soon as I stepped foot inside, I was greeted with huge smiles and genuine warmth.
Their homewares, and clothing is the best quality I found in Rishikesh. I bought a beautiful leather bag that receives compliments wherever I go.
Wish I had found this store earlier during my time in Rishikesh.
Definitely visit Scorpion Handicrafts if you're ever in town - you will not be disappointed!

Scorpion handicrafts is a great shop where you can find every kind of present in form of scarves, bags, shawls, and any kind of clothes you can wish for. Of course also for yourself, I would have loved to buy almost everything :) but the best about it is the owner Alok, he always welcomes you warmly and tries to get you the best shopping experience! He's is an all around lovely person and the heart of this little shop :)

It can be hard to know who to trust sometimes when shopping in India but Alok and his staff are genuinely kind, caring and helpful. You are always offered delicious chai and are welcome to spend as long in the shop looking through all the beautiful items or just hanging out and chatting with the staff and other customers. There is no big push to try and sell you anything but once you see all the beautiful scarves, blankets, bags and clothes it's hard to walk out without having bought something. They can also ship to other countries which I have made the most off since I was fast approaching my luggage allowance and wanted to make the most of my chance to buy such beautiful and reasonably priced fabrics. Alok was also incredibly helpful to my friends and I when we were looking for general advice about staying and travelling around Rishikesh, it seems there is nothing he won't try to help with if he can. I would definitely recommend shopping here if you are in Rishikesh, just make sure you don't have anywhere else to be because it is too easy to spend hours shopping and relaxing here.

Everything you need for your Rishikesh fashion and homewares shopping experience are in this shop .Best prices , best quality and best variety A ONE STOP SHOP !!! .Alok and his staff give you an experience like no one else .Chai tea and advice for all your needs on your stay ( the best local guide ) free of charge.The love and warmth of his genuine help was such a wonderful relief .When my mother and I arrived we had a situation with our visas .He had only just met us and went straight to work and helped us all from his heart.Nothing was too much trouble. We have made a friend for life all because we were blessed to walk into his shop .Because of the man he is Aloks shop is like a social club as well because he is so kind to EVERYONE .Every time you are in the shop you are constantly making new friends.,so its great for solo travellers to meet people. Myself and my mother cannot thank Alok enough for his kindness , guidance and love .Alok you really enriched our time in Rishikesh we were blessed to have met you sending divine blessings and gratitude with love now and always Hariom Inger and Ayla xxxx
