Fascinating insight into the history and modern application of handblock printing and materials

It was wonderful to see the man carving hand blocks the traditional way and to witness how they were used - the cabinets were full of materials with clear notes on their history

A lovely way to spend the afternoon doing something a bit different and getting to see how the last remaining block-printers continue the craft. It is an illuminating look into the way we produce clothing these days and the mechanisation of this type of work. What was once a way to make a living, passed down through generations, is sadly...

Loved the museum itself and the haveli's restoration efforts. This was quite run down till it was restored using native architectural techniques and materials. Hence it easily manages a traditional look and feel with little effort. It was also quiet the day we were there and allowed for an easy and slow ambience. We ended up not only admiring the... More

Quaint little Haveli housing the old world charm of organic fabrics, hand painting, block printing and natural dying. Highly recommend for DIY lovers and suckers of block print

If you are interested in fabrics this is a must. It is a small museum charting the history of wood block printing in India and up on the top floor you can watch craftsmen making blocks and also printing fabric and you can have a go too. One of the wood carvers made a little flower block for me which... More

This is a must if you are in Amber-Jaipur. Here you can try to do some block printing yourself and you also get a close up of how the blocks are done. Get to know the history behind block printing and look at different prints.

The museum is beautiful, uncrowded, and provides deep insight into the art of hand-printed clothing. Definitely worth a visit if you're already visiting the Amber Fort. Anokhi is also my favorite clothing shop I've visited in India, so make sure to stop by the gift shop in the museum or the regular shop in Jaipur.
