RETAIL THERAPY CLOTHING
Frenchman Theirry Journo, who’s worked with the likes of Thierry Mugler and Andrée Putman, flips Jaipur’s penchant for print with his eclectic, colourful derivatives. Palanquins, Mughal monuments, Sino characters, decorated camels – they all find their way onto kaftans for women, buttoned-down shirts for men, upholstery, cushion covers and crockery. There’s also a made-to-order line of furniture and
furnishings, including tied-and-dyed carpets.

Started in 1911, this is every royal’s go-to for saris and poshaks. The 4th generation owner, Sandeep Burad, produces exquisite designs in a range of little-used artisanal formats such as tarkashi, badla, mukaish and danka. Most saris found here are single pieces and rarely replicated. And, yes, they do design on order and restore heirloom pieces. *By appointment only
