Tour Description

In the narrow streets of the old city of Jaipur, a particular alley has a distinctive smell. This is the scent of the lac resin that is being molded into fashionable bangles. This is mainly done by women, who are also the designers behind these traditional bangles. For most of these women, this craft making activity is the primary source of income for them and their families. The technique of making these bangles is something that they learn from their families as this knowledge is passed down generations. There is no formal schooling or teaching involved.
