It is my pleasure to welcome you to Jaipur and especially to the palaces, forts and other properties that belong to the royal family.
Jaipur’s Maharaja Man Singh II Museum (MSMSII) is known for its collection of textiles, handicrafts and architecture. As an extension of this museum, “Palace Atelier” – a Museum Shop has been created .The shop showcases hand crafted products reminiscent of the artifacts displayed in the Museum and exemplifies good design with a collection of products highlighting the traditional techniques of arts and crafts. The printed material section has a whole range of books which will always remind you of the Royal and glorious pink city — Jaipur!
Traditional motifs and frescos all around the Palace have been translated into a range of products in contemporary style using traditional techniques...from gota patti and hand embroidery to block printing and tie & dye – there are variety of stoles, sarees, garments, turbans, bags, bed linen, table linen etc.
A lot of effort has been put in to revive and achieve the intricate and delicate handwork of the bygone era. Therefore, Replicas of the items in the museum - like Thalposh (plate cover), Pankhurst (hand fan) Cushion Cover, Shawls, Gangajali (water container) Pachranga T-shirt and Night Polo Ball are the highlight of the shop. The silver inlayed daggers and frames, wooden hand painted drawers, enamelled silver salad spoons and gota patti chess set have an exotic feel!
In an endeavour to educate children about history and tradition of Jaipur, puzzles and books have been developed. Apart from this, exciting items like blocks, games, key chains and soft toys are bound to keep the kids engrossed.
The shop provides a lot of options for gifts and mementos. Magnets, cuff links, button sets, caps, ceramic and hand made paper products in the theme of royal crest, polo and much more.
