Textiles and Traditional Crafts
Explore the traditional crafts and textiles of Rajasthan on this small curated group where we will journey through Delhi, Jaipur, Pushkar, Jodhpur and the rural countryside. We will have the chance to meet with expert artisans, including block printers, silver smiths, potters and dhurrie weavers. Learn about traditional textiles with visits to museums and creative houses as well as trying your hand at some traditional crafts yourself.
During the journey, we will get to stay in small intimate properties that are owner run. This will enable you to really get under the skin of the area, with opportunities to interact with the hosts and experience true authentic Indian hospitality. One of the highlights includes a stay in a 300 year old fort in the middle of the beautiful rural countryside, surrounded by local villages.
We have designed the trip to show you India away from the generic tourist excursions so that you can enjoy a true authentic journey . Some of the immersive experiences include visiting a Bishnoi tribal community, a walk through hidden corners of Jaipur to find local craft traders, an e-rickshaw tour with a woman-led NGO and a chance to have your horoscope read by an expert astrologer.
