Every place is unique in its way but there is always some specialty about that place which makes it different from others. That specialty attracts us towards it and not only us but specially tourists and outsiders. Tourists are interested in visiting places which are popular or have some historical significance instead of roaming all over the city.

Those specified places or spots tell us majorly all about city and give us a clear picture of the culture, history and customs of that place.

Jaipur which is always known for its forts like “amer fort”, “nahargarh fort”etc. and food especially “dal baati churma” is also known for its handicrafts and clothes. Jaipur is famous for “lahariya” and “bandhej”. These are the fabric materials which are used to stich saris in Jaipur. These bandhej and lahariya saris are used to wear by women on festivals. The best place to purchase these saris or fabrics is “BAPU BAZZAR”. Bapu bazzar is known for its handicrafts and these fabrics. It is a whole sale market which sells these goods to not only local people and tourists but also to maximum all the retailers in the city. Hare all the clothes and fabrics are made by the local workers with proper embroidery. Lahariya and bandhej clothe always needs to be dyed in bright colors like orange, red, pink, yellow etc. as these are the basic colors which have to be wearied by local people on occasions. These clothe are firstly dyed and then required designing is done on it. Maximum all the shopkeepers have their own manufacturers separately. These manufacturers produce the required clothing in the factories and supply them to the shops in the bazzar. These local clothes and colors are liked and appreciated by the tourists a lot which makes this whole bapu bazzar unique. This bazzar is also special for its handmade earrings, purses, bed sheet etc. the bed sheets which are sold there are usually in “sanganeri print”.

Apart from it, handmade earrings and purses are also counted in bapu bazzar’ specialities. These purses, handicrafts and earrings are made by local merchants who either sell that directly to the customers or to the shopkeepers.These items has that local jaipuri touch which is not seen anywhere else.
