If you like to have a shopping session amidst the alpine meadows and the lofty cerulean mountains then come to Jammu. This is a heaven on earth, according to Jahangir, the famous Mughal ruler, who exclaimed on his first interaction-"Gar firdaus, ruhe zamin ast, hamin asto, hamin asto, hamin asto" (If there is a heaven on earth, it's here, it's here, it's here). The panoramic landscape justifies this remark and the Shopping arcades compliment your visit to this blissful land.
Your shopping in Jammu would be a delightful experience, consisting of various arts and crafts items ranging from Wood Carvings and furniture to decorative wooden boxes, Shawls and papier-mache items.
- If you want to present your near and dear ones with the famous Pashmina Shawls of Kashmir, Pherans or tweeds, they would be highly elated. Shawls of Kashmir consist of various counts of wool like 40, 60 and 80 that progressively enhances its texture and quality. The price decreases as pure Pashmina is mixed with other fibers, and increases with embroidery works and wool count.
- A brass or silverwarein your showcase bought from Kashmir would augment the elegance of your house, much like a woolen carpet for the children to crawl about, without hurting themselves.
- The papier-mache items constitute a perfect gift item for the members of your family, or perhaps your friends and colleagues. Vases, bowls, pen stands, egg cups, and other ornamental items richly painted and varnished would gladden their hearts at once. It is in the mode of painting that the price depends and not on the material used.
- Walnut Wood itemswould suite your showcase as much as a gift item. Ranging from jewelry boxes to photo frames these are prices according to the quality of wood used.
A Silk Sari embroidered for your beloved would ensure her smile, a treasured thing begotten with care and concern. A Wall Hanging for your Drawing Room perhaps or for your study closes your shopping spree.
