Shopping in Kutch

Shopping in Kutch, Gujarat

Kutch has a rich culture that emanates through its art. The district is home to many several pastoral communities skilled in a variety of craft. Kutch has some great places including boutiques and shops, selling a wide selection of handloom fabrics, hand-painted wooden boxes, clothes, and bedding. It is a relatively less expensive place to shop; even splurging at boutique won't cost one a bomb. Also, villages like Bhujodi (8kms from Bhuj), Nirona, Bhuj, Anjar, and Hodka are amongst the good places to buy Kutchi craft.
