A shopping guide to Dastkar 2015

Dastkar is happening in town at Bangalore until 16th August at the Manpho Convention Center (next to Manyata Tech Park). This post is a riot of colors and an overload of images. So, grab a cup of chai and get ready to spend the next 30 mins immersed in these beautiful handicrafts, beaded jewelry, geometric rugs, block-printed handlooms, handcrafted pottery, silk saris and much more.

Most stalls were the regulars, some were missing, and some were new. All set?
