Handicrafts & Handloom Emporium

Arts & Crafts in Gangtok

A government initiative teaching marketable crafts has a whole series of workshops at Zero Point, along with a warehouse-sized 'emporium' selling its products. Tempting souvenirs at very fair prices include brightly decorated bamboo pen-pots (₹100), toy red pandas (₹100 to ₹500), handmade paper products and pretty purses, along with traditional Sikkimese costumes and furniture.

A range of handwoven carpets costs from ₹980 for an 18in souvenir square.
