Last 2 days of ongoing Khadi Exhibition

Be it fashionable attires, carpets, ethnic saris, pickles, jootis, jackets, shawls, quilt or durries the ongoing Khadi exhibition Opposite Gandhi Nagar Railway Station presents a glimpse of various Khadi products from different parts of the state.

Though an exhibition is organized to promote Khadi in Jaipur but for a change it is observed that Khadi Style is emerging as an in thing among youngsters.

People of all ages flocking in to get the traditional style ‘Bundies’ which were earlier meant only for old age people or for politicians.

Ladies were more interested to shop for pickles, papad & namkeen.

You can get a good selection of homespun cotton khadi items at Khadi Gramodyog. Everything in the exhibition is handmade.

Just last two days left of the exhibition.

Visit before it ends!!
