Grab your snacks & juices and head to Bagru. Yes, Bagru! Thought of it as just a boring hand-block printing place? Keep reading! ‘I really enjoyed the workshop and it was a lot of fun designing and printing a rug and a scarf…’, says one of the comments on Studio Bagru’s page on TripAdvisor. There are many such foundations in the city of block printing where you can enjoy thumping a neatly stretched fabric in front of you while you’re also taught the art of doing it! What more to ask for when you also get to carry your own handmade freebies back home. These Bagru items are sold as premium national art objects at posh prices in places far from here. So, you better value your chance!

The name, also known as a printing style nationwide, Bagru is a city 28 kms west of Jaipur. With multiple factories sourcing valuable art pieces to the world, Bagru provides a lot of workshops to its visitors. You should book one for yourself beforehand to be sure of the availability and time slots.

You can look one up on Google or try out Studio Bagru and ‘plan your creative India experience’ and ‘explore your design side’, as they say on their website.
