Ingrid and I got to Anokhi in Jaipur just ten minutes before closing time. I hoarded these amazing woodblock print fabric – in bedcovers, scarves and kaftans. But I didn’t hoard enough. When we got to Delhi we went to two Anokhi branches and both were closed. It was Independence Day and the entire city shut down.
Oh well, another reason to go back to Jaipur.
What am I going to do with all this fabric? I don’t know. I doubt I’ll wear most of them (the clothing). I was planning to reupholster an old seat with a graphic print from Anokhi. But there wasn’t enough time to peruse the home section. I really want more.
I was so inspired by the graphic prints and embellishments all over India. Here are a few that I captured.
I’m not done… there’s more.
