No trip can be complete without a tote full of mementos. Reminders of a trip doesn’t let the magic ever fade away and Ahmedabad has plenty that you’ll love to take back home. So much so that you can have a whole day to get your share of Ahmedabad with stuff that includes:

  • Woven Fabrics

Being the hub of textile industry in the entire region, there’s little wonder that Ahmedabad has ample of exclusive fabrics on offer. Lose yourself to the rich sheen of silk sarees, the likeable earthiness of handwoven cotton wear, the opulence of gold and silver threads used in zari work, the intriguing tachoi and patola work that often adorns sarees, turbans and chaniyas. Bundle up a stack of colours from C.G. Market, KAPASI Handicrafts Emporium, Gramudyog Centers and local markets in Ahmedabad.

  • Handicrafts

Antiques, wall hangings, wood carvings, rosewood and ivory work knives, mirrored jewelry boxes, tablecloths, curtains, pottery and more, there’s plenty. At a place that’s as brimming with richness in arts as Ahmedabad, don’t forget to take a slice of the authentic Gujarati fare. Bag in as much as you can.

  • Silk Patola Sarees

Immerse yourself in the splendid designs that cover every inch of these lustrous sarees. No tourist to Ahmedabad can leave without packing a bag or two full of the wondrous sarees that are priced anywhere between a few hundreds to some lakhs of INR. Banascraft and Gurjari are the hotspots for the best of silk patola sarees.

Antique jewelery, terracotta toys, carpets, Gujarati quilts, idols of Hindu deities make for some more lures for the shopaholics in Ahmedabad. A bit of bargaining and an eye for detail can get you the best out of the markets in the city. It’s often a good option to ask the city folk about the specialities and the best place to get those. Who knows you may end up adding some Gujarati words to your vocab!
