Carpets and shawls, from Kashmir! The sight of such shops makes one wonder how the shop owners know exactly what we want in one place. Go armed with superlatives and adjectives. Splendid, exquisite, great, fabulous, magnificent… such are the products on display here that you will fall short of words anyway. The sheer variety, design and size of carpets is unimaginable. The silk in the silk carpets are passed on from one generation to another… and hence many creations here have antique value.
Woollen carpets, silk carpets, hand-knotted carpets – the basement is warm and comfy in the company of these carpets! The staff never tire of explaining the intricacies of carpet-making, the art of hand-knotted shawls, crewel and chain stitch embroidery… interesting.
Clamber up to the first floor for another visual treat. … a surfeit of shawls made of wool, cotton, silk and linen. The beauty and softness of the pashmina shawl is simply unparalleled… it strikes you with the same wonder each time you caress it. These shawls and stoles come in beautiful shades with heavenly embroidery. The pashmina stoles wrapped around the neck looks elegant and is most comfortable. Woollen jackets with exquisite Kashmiri embroidery look absolutely marvelous. For reviews of more such Delhi shop reviews, check out Shopkhoj!
