Everyone wants to take a bit of India back with him or her. So, sickness people buy:
- Shawls of various kinds
- Readymade garments
- Custom tailored garments
Most people buy textiles. This generally includes fabrics with variety of colours, view which are mostly unstitched. My guests have been interested in using these fabrics as bed spreads, throws, table cloths, wall hangings or for curtains. Others look to stitch these into bags, dresses, pillow cases & cushion covers.
When I am talking about fabrics then a lot like to buy ready made tops like the Kurtas. Some preferred tailor made ones too. See my post of getting tailor made clothes in India for more information. I should also talk about shawls and Pashminas. Almost everyone likes to take a few extra to give away to friends & family back home.
As India is famous for its colours, most people like wall hangings with glitters and cushions with gold borders for home decor. Lot of my guest like to take back an elephant, not a real one of course 🙂 but made of different materials like stone, wood, brass or metal. There is a huge variety to choose from.
