We stopped at a factory because i wanted to buy a carpet from here , but because we were travelling by plane, we couldn't.
So i decided to take a 2×2 feet carpet for my table and believe me, the Kashmiri carpets - rich in texture, so calm, so soothing, a touch of it makes you feel so relaxed.
From :- The market opposite Shalimar Garden has many shops. I got these from there.
Cost:- The keyrings were of 20 bucks each and handicrafted boxe's cost varies according to their size. I got this one of 30 rs.
From Chacha jaan- I earlier also mentioned it. I picked up a beautiful pen holder as a good luck wish for my bestie and a key ring stand holder for me.
I also took Some shikaras ( and got my name impregnated on it ) and the best part was the gift which chacha jaan gifted my mom.
shikara with my name
pen stand for my bestie
elephant carved key chain holder
Cost :- This whole costed us around 250-300 rs.
I even got a hand on some handicraft items like small bells for my room door from a local floating market.
around 30-50 rs each
Cost :- cost of bells again depend on size as well as design. Each bell costed around 30-50 rs.
Cost:- The Dry fruits are really very costly in Kashmir owing to their purity and authenticity.
500gms Almonds - around1200-1400 rs.
5gms Kesar (Saffron) - around 350 rs for that small box.
I also brought a kashmiri styled kurti and some pashmina shawls also popularly known as Pashminas.
kashmiri kurti's are a must buy
cost:- The carpets cost varies according to it's quality and of course size.My carpet was around 2000rs. Pashminas are really really costly . A pure pashmina shawl would be around 12000-16000 rs .
The purpose of this blog was to tell you that make sure you shop these particular items from these particular areas only, because there are no less number of people giving you adulterated or impure things. That's why I haven't specefically mentioned the shops- I have just mentioned the areas.
