They have excellent jewelry boxes in lacquer work, camel bone and sandalwood as well.
Our verdict – The shop has a distinct style of its own. We came to know that a part of its proceedings from a particular section goes to a woman’s organization called Disha which also makes these handmade Indian products. Definitely a must visit as the store is quite a novelty.
