Jammu & Kashmir Craft Fair

Jammu & Kashmir is a shoppers paradise offering an array of ethnic arts and crafts. Be it Jammu, Kashmir or Ladakh – each region has an assortment of fascinating products for shopping. There are a plethora of things to choose from- pashmina and shatoosh shawls, walnut woodwork, handwoven carpets, saffron, almonds and paper mache articles.

Kashida embroidery from Kashmir was patronized by the royals of the Mughal era. It consists of intrinsic needlework in a wide variety of colours and patterns. The tensed situation in Kashmir has reduced its appeal as a lucrative tourist destination. Access to the Kashmiri crafts is now only through exhibitions and fairs held in various cities.

An exhibit of Jammu & Kashmir handicrafts was held at the lawns of Jawahar Kala Kendra, Jaipur. Here are the pictures –
