Happy Friday Folks!!

I recently heard of Anokhi, a museum dedicated to reviving and preserving the art of block printing. I'm not sure whether it's already done the desi(gn) blog circuit(apologies if you already heard of/blogged about it earlier!!), but just in case it hasn't, here's a  quick video to get you acquainted with the MO......

Here's a link to the museum website. Do hop on over for more info!

That's it for the week folks, have a great weekend!!

Linked via.


  1. Oh yes! I know about Anokhi! Also shop there every year :)

  2. Thanks for sharing the video..just amazing.
    @ Divya: Anokhi is one of my favorite shops. Another shop that I really like is Soma.

  3. I always shop from either Anokhi or Fabindia for my kurtis, etc.

  4. I know fabindia but not this one. But then, I am so out of touch with what's out there. Will remember it for my future India trips.

  5. fav place to shop. I go there all the time and yes, I visited the museum in Jaipur last year, and the only other creatures besides me were a couple of pigeons inhabiting the lovely corners of the museum. I met a man who was carving out the blocks, he led me thru the whole process...its a fascinating place! I loved it.

  6. Yes Anokhi is one of my fav places too for the past 18 yrs :-). Was too happy when they opened their store in Hyd few years ago.

  7. Anokhi is great! And they've opened a store 5 mins from my place - yay! Some people feel that they tend to repeat a lot of prints, colors. But they still look gorgeous :)

  8. Where are you GB? I have heard about this but havent tried much of their stuff.I generally shop at FabIndia and Good Things for such traditional stuff..Love love block prints.


Rant? Rave? Tell me about it!
