‪Beautiful handmade crafts and no pressured selling at all‬

‪The museum is next to the Amber Fort and well worth seeing when you visit the fort.

There are demonstrations of printing and woodworking being undertaken by the craftsmen at the museum. The variety and quality of the designs is excellent and better than those in local markets and shops.

There is a shop at the museum and high quality printed fabrics and products are available at very affordable prices

‪Fully worth the detour mind your head‬
נוב׳ 2019
‪I was not impressed with the idea to visit a hand printing museum but I changed my mind. Put into a very interesting building (mind your head) it gives an interesting insight into a nearly lost tradition, explains the how to and history pretty well and show pretty and interesting textiles.

Beware it can be too much information at a time.‬

‪A Brilliant Musuem‬
ינו׳ 2020
‪A lovely museum holding beautiful exhibits of textiles and the techniques used to make them.
Definitely worth a visit for what I remember to be a very reasonable price.
Sits very closely to Amber fort so you could easily do both in a day.
Brilliant shop inside aswell. Would love to see a bit more in the cafe as your some distance from shops but otherwise, brilliant.‬

‪EXCELLENT MUSEUM‬
משפחה • ינו׳ 2020
‪An outstanding little museum in a beautifully restored Haveli. Exhibitions are well laid out, displayed and explained. There's not too little to bore you, not too much to overwhelm, just perfect for you to gain a good understanding about hand printing and grow to appreciate, if not love it! The quality of the works are astounding. Mr. Pavan gave us a tour and he explained everything really well. The museum shop is delightful as well. The live demonstrations are fascinating. We love the dignity of this museum. Such a beautiful example of how to preserve tradition and culture without blatant commercialization. Very refreshing after the ugly commercialized Amber Fort. This museum is well worth a couple hours of your time!‬

‪Here I really learned about entities I didn't know about before‬
אוג׳ 2019
‪I asked our taxi driver to visit this museum, as my guidebook recommended it as an outstanding sight near Amber Fort. But I didn't know anything about it.
I too was impressed by the skill with which the ancient "haveli" that houses the museum has been restored, and by the care with which it's maintained.
The exhibition of the craft of hand printing by wooden blocks is also interesting for those who are not fond of fabrics: he / she will learn the essentials of both the different characteristics of fabrics and the ways of printing them.
At the end of the visit, a craftsman printed a cotton handkerchief in different colors and patterns in a few minutes, and gave it to my wife, who still keeps it.
After my visit to this museum, I learned that the name "Anokhi" is that of a local company that has a factory in Jaipur and employs many hundreds of workers in the production of fabrics printed by this traditional technique. And I also understood that this technique, which risked disappearing at the end of the last century, derives from a secular Indian tradition, in which Rajastan, and in particular the town of Bagru, west of Jaipur, excels.
In short, I really learned about entities I didn't know; as it's obvious, traveling to a country like India, which for its size and the antiquity of its civilization has a "reservoir" of cultural accumulation among the very first in the world.‬

‪A well maintained museum dedicated to textiles. The way to the museum amidst the lanes of Amber is equally enjoyable, especially if you are a lover of art and architecture!‬

‪Insight into the reason Indian textiles ruled the world‬
נוב׳ 2019
‪You have to see the complicated steps needed to make the fabrics to understand why the fabric produced would be so sought after. It must have taken much enginuity to discover all the plants and processes necessary.

Beautiful printing and wonderful colours.

The "demonstrations" are really just a shop so be prepared.‬

‪Hands on experience at museum‬
נוב׳ 2019
‪This museum is located close to Amer Fort and is excellent value for money (clean toilets too!). We looked at the exhibitions and then had a live demonstration of how to make a wooden block pattern to use as a print. We continued to another live demonstration of how to block print on fabric. We were able to have a go and were allowed to take our sampler piece away as a souvenir.
A very quiet museum which is well worth a visit.‬

‪Witness hand block printing‬
אוק׳ 2019
‪This place is near Amer Fort. Jaipur is famous for hand block printing. We could see live demonstrations in this museum. An old haveli has been restored. There is permanent exhibition of hand block printed clothes and information about this tradition. The real fun is when you see how it happens. First artist shows how printing blocks are made. In next room, you can see how block printing actually happens. The artists allow you to do hand block printing. There is a shop selling these clothes.‬
