Arts & Crafts in Kolkata (Calcutta)

An impressive array of traditional arts and tribal crafts are on sale at this well-stocked government emporium. Service is a bit impersonal and prices can be steeper than some street establishments, but you can rest assured that you're only buying genuine and well-curated merchandise here. There are separate sections for textiles, artefacts, metalwork, woodwork and handmade paper, among others.
